Administration salary trends for the year ahead

With highly skilled candidates in short supply, companies need to take a flexible approach when it comes to administration salaries. Candidates are more knowledgeable about their market value, so companies need to be prepared to offer a higher package.

Technical skills are critical

Businesses are undergoing transformation through digitisation. This game-changing shift is fuelling demand for talented administration and office professionals with the right technical skills to support business growth and change. Equally as important is an aptitude towards continuously improving these skills.

The soft skills in demand

Expectations are greater today for administrative professionals due to the progressive exposure of these roles to collaborate with other departments. Therefore, soft skills such as communication and problem solving skills are key traits in demand.
