Administration and Office Support Jobs


About the Administration and Office Support Industry in New Zealand

Many people make a career in administrative roles with the breadth of demands and skills required of these people increasingly being acknowledged by the public and employers.


There is plenty of flexibility in this industry, as all sectors in New Zealand require some level of administrative support. Candidates can work in a variety of businesses and grow their skills and knowledge of different industries while they do so. Part-time and after hours work is always available for people with skills in administration and office support.  

Getting a Job in Administration

The chances of securing a job in administration are average for people with no experience, and good for people with experience. Experience in this industry can include customer service experience, accounting, and IT work, as well as previous reception and administration roles.


It is necessary to have skills in software like Microsoft Office and Excel, an understanding of website management and database systems, health and safety laws, keyboard and computer skills, and to be able to take minutes and write reports.

The office environment is rapidly changing and there are hundreds of different titles for those who work in administration based roles.


Some companies require multiple people to fill these roles.
