Offices require collaboration. Team members constantly exchange ideas, documents and tasks between individuals and departments. If you’re just starting out or are coming from a non-office-based industry, employers may not immediately recognize your ability to integrate into their existing teams. If you want to advance into administrative or management roles, you’ll need to develop your office skills. Clerical support jobs are a proven way to make this happen.

The word “support” says everything you need to know about this role. You will support immediate team members and the organization’s decision-makers with their goals. Your assigned tasks may include entering data, filing documents, sending and receiving correspondence and relaying messages between departments. Every office needs to perform these basic tasks, regardless of industry, so clerical support jobs are available across all sectors. If you put in your time with clerical work, you will pick up essential office skills and prove yourself as an effective team member.
