Office Manager Job Ad Template

Spot the difference

Writing job ads can be tough if you’re not an expert on the role. For instance, what is the difference between an Office Administrator and an Office Manager? Or, what duties does a Virtual Assistant have that a CEO Assistant doesn’t?

In short; Office Managers assist a team with admin, processes and procedures while Office Administrators focus mainly on administrative tasks and file management. Administrative Coordinators specialise in scheduling and organisation, as do Virtual Assistants who work remotely to help a team with admin tasks. A CEO Assistant will help with scheduling, admin assistance and more, specifically for C-Level individuals.

  • Office Managers are experts in scheduling, data management and other administrative duties. They are on-site to assist a team with these tasks, as well as introducing and improving processes that will streamline a team’s productivity or workflow.
  • Administrative Coordinators are responsible for file management, coordinating information between departments and occasionally assisting with budgets. They are vital to ensuring a smooth workflow for the team.
  • A Virtual Assistant works remotely with a team to help with data entry, organisation of essential information and passing communication smoothly between stakeholders. They will often work closely with finance and HR in handling budget-related files.
  • CEO Assistants specialise in offering administrative and scheduling support to an individual C-Level member of staff. They will be highly skilled in calendar management, data entry and communications.
  • Office Administrators are experts in file management and data entry and will often work on administrative duties such as filing expense reports, creating and reporting on invoices and managing communication between teams.

Need inspiration?

Your job description will not attract talent all on its own. So when putting together your job post, be sure to show what it's like working at your company not just textually but visually!

  • Remember, attracting a candidate is just as much about your company culture as the job role itself. Make sure to include points that make you seem desirable too!
  • Add photos that show off your office space, team events and your team having a great time.
  • Maybe you could include a video of some team members explaining why they love coming to work, or why they like their role.
  • Include a grid of attractive perks with some nice illustrations. Maybe you have unlimited holidays, or you have an attractive parental leave cover - show off!
  • Why not embed your company's Instagram feed to give a IRL overview of the day-to-day.
