Office work is probably one of the most popular types of jobs, especially amongst school leavers as there is often a large amount of these types of roles available and some require little or no experience. This does not mean that these jobs are not rewarding and good jobs to have. Office jobs can vary widely depending on what industry they are in. If you chose to take on an office job that is based within a company that deals directly with the public, then you may find that much of your role is customer facing and managing being the go between with the customer and the business. If you chose to work for a company that sells to the trade, then your role may be more based around working on your own or closely with internal members of staff rather than with the public.

Working in an office is a great way to get a feel for a work place. You will often get to liaise with different departments and get to understand how the company works.

Often you have the opportunity to progress from an office role such as an office junior up to manager or co-ordinator quite quickly if you show willing and are reliable.
