Project Administrator Job Description

Project administrators are responsible for helping with many of the duties surrounding project management, such as staying in touch with contractors, scheduling appointments, procuring supplies, visiting worksites and preparing reports. They are in lockstep with the project manager throughout the project cycle and receive almost an apprentice in the profession. Their duties range from the mundane to critical tasks that are fundamental to the project's success. The project administrator is responsible for taking the smaller responsibilities off the project manager's desk and preparing work for the project manager to do. They usually report to the project manager, but some projects have a project coordinator, project manager, assistant project manager and so forth.

Education is important, and certification is strongly recommended. Senior project administrators are usually well-qualified, with certification, experience and even master's degrees in the field. Project administrators are responsible for coordinating project activities, maintaining and updating the project schedule, managing assignments, monitoring progress and communicating to the project team. They should have supervisory skills, computer literate, strong oral and written communication skills, professionalism and being on time, proactive and open to new things. The salary of a project administrator is contingent on experience and varies depending on the region. The average annual pay in the US is $66,000, with $107,000 being the peak.
