Clerical & Administrative Jobs
Clerical and administrative jobs are an excellent way to make a steady income in South Africa. You will need to have your Matric to get the majority of clerical and administrative jobs that are available, although there are some entry-level jobs that do not require any experience or education. If you gain experience with an entry-level job, you may be able to get a higher-level job down the road.
Receptionist jobs are perfect for people who need an entry-level position. Common duties include answering phones, typing, and receiving items from couriers. This is one of the few no Matric clerical and administrative jobs available in South Africa. If you do have your Matric and some office experience, though, you stand a good chance of beating out other candidates for one of these jobs.
If you are interested in becoming an administrative clerk, you will need your Matric and some computer experience. Clerks might be required to work with accounting software such as Sage Pastel. Other duties include bank reconciliation and accounts receivable work. Before you apply for clerical and administrative jobs, you might want to spend some time as a receptionist or taking computer-training courses. That way, you will be up to the task when you get your job.
You can also work as an office manager. At the minimum, you must have your Matric to become an office manager. Additionally, some companies require that you have a degree. Others will hire you if you are working toward a degree. Some companies require that applicants have a broad range of experience, while others only require experience in bookkeeping. Duties include running reports, tracking expenditures, updating staff records, managing credit transactions, and more. This job is best for someone who is detail oriented and organised since it is a lot of work.
