A company administrator does not always have the same duties at different companies. The primary role of a company administrator is to handle all the office responsibilities, including the documents and paperwork that are accumulated by the company in the process of doing business. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a administrative services manager can expect to earn a median annual salary of £47,788 as of 2008.

Department Oversight

Each company administrator oversees the human resources department, legal department, financial records department and any other department that handles documentation for the company. The company administrator centralises all these departments in order to report to the chief executive officer or board of directors with periodic updates of the companies status. Part of the duty requires the company administrator to ensure all proper federal, state and local laws are being followed by the company and the documentation or reporting procedures are being followed.


The company administrator monitors the annual budget approved by the board of directors and ensures that budget is being met. This includes monitoring the revenue and payouts of each department to see if they are following the budget requirements and not exceeding them. A company administrator also researches vendors and suppliers to make sure the company is getting the best price for the materials required to operate the company. Part of this duty is to take bids on materials, maintenance and equipment purchases.


It is the duty of a company administrator to supervise all the administrative personnel. Most companies have personnel who maintain the paperwork that a company accumulates during operation of a company. This includes insurance filing, payroll, training documentation, certifications and other documentation processed by the administrative offices. All of this documentation and paperwork must be processed properly, and the company administrator ensures the office employees are performing their tasks in a competent manner.
