Administrative manager


These professionals perform administrative tasks. They use digital formats to do so, processing, filing and searching for required documentation online. Online administratives officers' duties vary according to the department and company for which they work. Nevertheless, these professionals always utilise the same tools: the internet and specific computer software that help optimise their tasks. This occupation is evolving, both in terms of the tasks they perform and the skills they require: while a few years back, words per minute was the most essential consideration, nowadays administrative officers must be able to identify, diagnose and formulate solutions in a constantly changing business and technological context. Similarly, it is worth taking into account the recently introduced and increasingly widely used option of performing certain tasks using digital certificates.
