Job Description Template for an Admin Assistant

A job description that attracts the right candidate for your role is crucial so the more information you can provide, the better. When briefing any admin candidates, we always discuss the vacancy in great depth including the duties, history of the role, company culture as well as any benefits package. We spend a long time focusing on the right fit for you, so we want the description to also speak to a candidate and make them feel excited by the opportunity.

At the start of the job description, it is worthwhile including a company profile describing what you are looking for and giving an overview of the company and culture. You may also want to include a link to your ‘About Us’ page. This will help to bring the role to life and allow the potential candidate to get a feel for the relevant personalities or teams they could be working with.
