Management, business and administration

In businesses there are employees that work at varying levels of responsibility, depending on their place in the hierarchy of the business, or the way that it is organised. Business skills come into play in many aspects of life, from controlling a budget to managing a business, marketing, human resources, communications and sales.

There are many career options for those interested in the world of business with roles ranging from entry level to high skilled executive, management or specialist jobs.

Management is getting people together to work towards a common goal. It involves planning, organising, resourcing, leading, and controlling a group or organisation with the intent to produce a desired result. A manager is responsible for controlling the way a business carries out its tasks while at the same time keeping staff motivated and satisfied. A manager is also responsible for the company’s resources. They need to find the right people, the money and whatever else may be required for the company to carry out its business.

Specific duties of a manager can vary depending on what field they may be in and the level of authority they have. Fields which require managers include retail, manufacturing, utilities, construction, distribution, accommodation, and transport.

Managers can be found at many levels. Senior management are generally those who manage the day to day activates of a business, above them may be a board of directors who will manage the senior management as opposed to the day to day running of the business. Particularly large organisations will often have managers for particular departments, like sales. Some may also be responsible for the hiring and dismissal of staff.

Human Resource refers to the management of the staff, the people working in the organisation who individually and collectively contribute to the achievement of the objectives of the business.

HR is one of the specialist management roles in any medium or large organisation. HR Managers usually require specific education and training in order to accomplish their tasks, and often achieve their roles after years of experience in business.
