Duties of an Office Junior - Although being an office junior sounds like fun, a lot of people don't always know what it entails.

Some companies also expect their office juniors to welcome clients and take care of them while they're waiting.

They usually want you to have your GCSEs, and some of the openings for larger companies may require secretarial certification.
