Administrative

Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

About

Humans and animals live their lives alongside each other. We are inseparable from each other and many jobs exist to care for our animal friends.

In the countryside, the National Parks & Wildlife Service cares for the environment of wild animals, especially endangered ones, while Gamekeepers maintain the numbers of animals used for hunting.
