Many administrative roles, such as Administrative Assistants or Receptionists, may require a minimum of GCSEs or equivalent qualifications, including English and Maths. However, whatever qualifications you can pick up along the way to strengthen your skills will help to demonstrate your commitment to your career.
The typical selection process for admin roles involves several steps. It usually begins with submitting your CV and a cover letter, showcasing your skills and experience (which we will do for you).
