Business Administrators need a broad range of skills to work efficiently and to help increase business productivity.    Skills shortages identified by organisations include a lack of office and administration skills, customer-handling skills, technical and practical skills, oral communication skills and IT skills, all of which are covered within the Business Administration Apprenticeship.

Operational Delivery Officers have the vital job of keeping the country running.    They make sure that citizens get the services and protection they need, and help people understand what is available and what they need to do to comply with the rules.    Operational Delivery Officers make a difference every day to the lives of millions of people.    They do hundreds of jobs in most departments and agencies in central government.    They also work in local government, delivering services for towns, cities, boroughs or counties.
