How to hire a great freelance General Office Specialist

An office specialist is a person who is well versed with the operations of an office. Usually a general office specialist deals with administrative aspects of the office and will hold a relatively upper level rank in the hierarchy, which will be equivalent to an office manager.
A general office specialist sometimes also gets the title of an administrative specialist. He/she provides communication, business support, and even takes care of the clerical support when the situation demands.
Mostly, a general office specialist works from an office environment. In some cases, an office specialist can work remotely too, taking on the administrative duties like a virtual assistant. The duties of an office specialist depend to a considerable extent on the type of business of the organisation. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the opportunities for general office specialists are expected to rise by at least 12% by the year 2022.
What exactly does the job of a general office specialist entail?
A general office specialist is essentially responsible for executing senior level administrative duties requiring expertise in one or more areas of specialities, either for a single executive or for more than one in a group. Though the duties are apparently administrative in nature, they are limited to that.
The duties include:
Working with the executive and the team members as per the requirements of the business
Liaising with different branches or departments and clients on behalf of the executive/team members
Ensuring coordination with various departments for smooth operation of the business
Working hand in hand with other businesses for the improvement of business operations and execution of various projects
Resolution of most of the non-operational issues
Acting as project leader for non-administrative projects
Providing recommendations and other crucial inputs regarding administration and business operation to senior business managers
Providing support to all facilities initiated by the management including office openings and closings and even moves
Executing other additional duties as and when assigned.
What are the qualifications expected of a general office specialist?
A basic qualification of Bachelor’s degree in any field
Excellent knowledge in Microsoft Office including Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint
