Your key admin, whether a part-time Administrative Assistant or a high level Business Manager or Operations Director, this role is fundamental to the proper functioning of a design firm.
The OFFICE MANAGER category will help you to avoid a common mistake designers tend to make is hiring more design staff and leaving their admin roles poorly staffed. This can be avoided by understanding what this role does and how to hire and train and manage this key team member.
I recommend this role is the first hire, even if it is part time or an outside contractor, you need this admin aspect of your business well managed. This also means you’ll need structure and processes in place as well. Use this membership for all of this and create a strategic advantage for your firm.
