What makes a bad office manager, a good office manager or a great office manager?
Reading this blog post, that’s what. But what else?
Depending on the size and structure of your organisation, a truly great office manager can also combine with other office-based job roles such as Human Resources, Finance, Facilities Manager, Personal Assistant, Marketing and Operations Manager.
In fact, according to www.payscale.com most Office Managers move on to become Operations Managers, Human Resources Managers or Facilities Managers.
The same source even records that your average salary will be higher if you obtain skills in these areas.
The UK national average salary for an Office Manager is £24,000.
Disgrace if you ask us!
Anyway, obtain skills in the following areas to increase your chances of a higher salary and further career opportunities:
Facilities skills – average 4% higher salaries
Human Resources – average 3% higher salaries
Operations – average 3% higher salaries
Even better is that if you achieve a career move into these areas, you can enjoy the following UK national average salary (According to www.payscale.com):
Facilities Manager – £30,340
Human Resources Manager – £35,813
Operations Manager – £34,275
So, if you already have skills in all these areas, chances are you’re already great so go and ask for a pay raise!
