Frequently asked questions

Find a few of our most frequently asked questions about secretarial jobs below.

What is a secretary job?

A secretary is responsible for many administrative duties across a business, from answering incoming phone calls and emails to scheduling meetings, ordering office supplies, organising filing systems, and onboarding new members of staff.

What qualifications do I need to be a secretary?

It is not necessary to have a specific qualification to become a secretary, and many roles are entry level. However, there are several secretarial schools and courses available that can give you a strong grounding in the position before you . These qualifications and certificates will also help you progress faster in your career.



Is a secretary a receptionist?

Secretaries can share certain responsibilities with receptionists, such as being the first point of contact for clients and customers. But, secretaries typically have wider-ranging duties, and will be entrusted with more sensitive data and information.

Where could a secretary job take you?

A career as a secretary is multi-faceted, rewarding and presents opportunities to get involved with a wide range of administrative tasks. As it is an industry-agnostic career choice, it could take you to a variety of companies all over the world! If you are starting out as a junior secretary, your responsibilities could include providing general support to the secretarial or support team, maintaining an efficient filing system, managing company documents and acting as the first point of contact for the business.

As a senior secretary, you would be providing high-level administrative support to a team of executives and partners, collaborating with other secretarial staff to ensure smooth business operations and in some companies, manage a team of other administrative staff. This position requires a managerial approach, so requires an exceptional attention to detail and outstanding communication and organisational skills.

An increase in hybrid roles means that the scope of secretarial jobs continues to widen, with opportunity to get involved in marketing, events, projects, accounts, HR, operations and facilities, amongst other responsibilities. This also means that the career pathway of a secretary continues to shift, moving away from a ladder-like progression into something more fluid.
