What is a finance administrative assistant?
A finance administrative assistant is responsible for providing support to different stakeholders by handling various tasks to ensure that all organisational interactions are completed efficiently and effectively. They are the backbone of an organisation and handle many time-consuming and transactional tasks management does not have time to complete.
Administrative assistant duties and tasks can include:
- General administrative tasks including filing, generating reports, scheduling meetings and taking minutes, and ordering suppliers
- Using systems and software to create reports, presentations and conduct research
- Liaise with visitors, clients and customers
- Anticipate the needs of management and stakeholders to ensure seamless organisational flow is maintained.
These administrative tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, often requiring multitasking skills. Organisations free up their local finance teams’ time by sending these administrative tasks to outsourced administrative assistants. This allows your onshore team to focus on nurturing client relationships and performing revenue generating work.
