Are you right for a PA, secretarial or receptionist in Berkshire career?

While many people have dreams of working in an office, there are a number of things that you need to take into consideration before you can consider yourself suitable for the job. Many clerical jobs have high turnovers in staff due to the fact that new employees are unsure what to expect from their job, or don't necessarily fit the requirements to be a success.

Regardless of whether you're looking for a PA, secretarial or receptionist in Berkshire career, you'll need to have a certain skill set to suit the office environment and give yourself the very best chance of being a success.

Firstly, you need to be comfortable using a computer. This doesn't simply mean that you know how to check email or use the internet (although these skills can play a big part in certain administrative roles), but it means that you are confident in your ability to learn new software quickly, while also having an acceptable degree of familiarity with many of the most commonly used software packages.

When it comes to PA, clerical or secretarial work, it's absolutely essential that you know how to use both Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word. For email it is assumed that you are familiar with at least one email client, such as Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes.

You'll also need to be comfortable with using your own initiative in order to get jobs done. Time management is another huge factor, unless you are adept at this skill things may get on top of you rather quickly which certainly isn't ideal.

If you tick all these boxes you can expect to earn anywhere from £11.20 to £16.45 from your new PA, secretarial or receptionist in Berkshire career staring off. This will increase over time, and if you have any prior experience in a similar role, it will be taken into consideration when it comes to your starting wage.

We recommend that you focus your job search on New Greenham Park Enterprize Centre and Harwell Innovation Centre, both of which offer a wide range of potential positions that will be of interest to you due to the high volume of businesses located in them.
