Looking for jobs as an administrative assistant in Plymouth Devon?

These days interest in working in clerical positions seems to be increasing all the time. Whether this is due to the fact that more and more people are so comfortable using computers in their spare time that they think it will make sense to get a job that will allow them to take advantage of these skills, or simply that they see it as an easy opportunity to make some extra money is still to be seen, but the fact is that it is one of the most popular sectors among job hunters these days.

However despite this popularity there are a surprising number of people out there who still don't quite realise what is required of someone working in jobs as an administrative assistant in Plymouth Devon. So we're going to take a look at exactly what you're going to need to ensure that you are sufficiently skilled to work in these roles.

Firstly, being comfortable with the use of computers is absolutely essential. You'll need to be familiar with the Windows based environment, as well as knowing the Microsoft Office suite of software (especially Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel) particularly well.

A typing speed of in excess of 60 words per minute is definitely desirable, as is an excellent telephone manner. The money on offer for these positions can vary wildly depending on the company you are working for, but a general rule of thumb is that you can probably expect to make between £6.20 and £7.00 per hour from an entry level position, with wages of up to £12.00 per hour coming for those of you who have senior experience.
