maintaining and improving administrative services. Business administrators develop key skills and behaviours to
support their own progression towards management responsibilities.

The responsibilities of the role are to support and engage with different parts of the organisation and interact with
internal or external customers. With a focus on adding value, the role of business administrator contributes to the
efficiency of an organisation, through support of functional areas, working across teams and resolving issues as
requested. The flexibility and responsiveness required allows the apprentice to develop a wide range of skills.

The business administrator is expected to deliver their responsibilities efficiently and with integrity – showing
a positive attitude. The role involves demonstrating strong communication skills (both written and verbal) and
adopting a proactive approach to developing skills. The business administrator is also expected to show initiative,
managing priorities and own time, problem-solving skills, decision-making and the potential for people management
responsibilities through mentoring or coaching others
