The office manager is a pivotal role in any business and is typically employed to relieve some of the pressure on senior executives with regards to office operations.
They are typically responsible for general office management, arranging team events, managing support staff and IT functions and responding to customer enquiries. Depending on the size of the business, an office manager may also assist with marketing tasks, including social media updates, website functionality and sending mailshots to clients and customers.
In some workplaces, the office manager role could also encompass some HR functions, including maintaining holiday and sickness records for employees, ensuring adequate staff levels to cover holidays and peak times and managing pension plans, payroll, annual leave and employee inductions.
Tiger Recruitment’s team of knowledgeable consultants understand the impact that an office manager can have on a business. Businesses that are expanding quickly, or have a desire to do so, may wish to keep their senior executives and senior managers focused on bringing in and transacting business and meeting investors, as opposed to dealing with landlords, suppliers and IT issues.
