  • Accounts administration
  • Human Resource administration
  • Office Support (including filing and scanning of important documents)

While we would rather play to your strengths and expertise, assignments are determined by client requirements and, even if you do not want to be a professional receptionist, every assignment should be looked upon as an opportunity to showcase your skills to potential employers. A great attitude and a willingness to learn are therefore essential for success in this program!
