Versatility and organisation
The secretary occupies a key role when it comes to the everyday running of a business. Secretaries handle incoming and outgoing calls, organise diaries and meetings for other employees, receive, draft and send out post and e-mail, file paperwork, arrange trips and travel, as well as taking notes and drawing up minutes. Depending on the business, they may also welcome visitors and respond to their demands, deal with invoices, maintain customer relations or sometimes specialise in a specific field, be it medical, legal or technical.
All kinds of services, companies and organisations are open to the secretary: SMEs, large groups and public administration.
Skills required: an excellent command of French (other languages are an advantage for international corporations) – interpersonal skills – organisation – responsiveness – versatility – discretion
