- A Project or Program Administrator plans and undertakes administration of special projects, organisational programs and support services, including management of staff.
Alternative Titles：Project Coordinator
Occupations not considered by VETASSESS under this ANZSCO code：
- Administrative positions which are only clerical/secretarial in nature
- Customer Service Officer
- Business Owner
- Generalist management roles which are not concerned with the administration of a particular program or projects
- Office Managers
Project work is integrated into many professions, such as Engineering, IT, Marketing and Advertising. In order to be assessed positively for this occupation, applicants would need to demonstrate that their role is in the administration of the project or program, rather than the usual tasks for that occupation. Project Management roles (such as in construction, engineering, graphic design), where the applicant is doing the usual tasks of another occupation rather than just the administrative tasks, their primary role would not be considered as Project and Program Administrator. For example, a Graphic Designer may undertake each commission as a ‘project’; however their main role in completing the project will be to perform the associated graphic design work, not the administration of the project and managing associated paperwork.
Applicants nominating this occupation for VETASSESS Skills Assessment must provide official reference letters stating specific projects/programs that the applicant has worked on and the specific tasks undertaken by the applicant in support of these specific projects.
The role of a Project or Program Administrator include:
Managing special or ongoing organisational projects or programs. For example, a project administrator who is responsible for the development of a new software package coordinates the activities of software developers, software testers and engineers to ensure that the package comes together as planned and on time. In some smaller organisations, project administrators have a much more hands on role in the implementation of projects.
Throughout the life of the project, the Administrator is responsible for producing reports that provide vital information on the progress of the project to all those involved with its implementation.
The Administrator may hold specialised knowledge in the field of which they are working but primarily their main role is the coordination of the project or program.
Applicants must demonstrate that:
- the projects are separate from the day-to-day activities of the organisation. Applicants should not simply be performing the normal services of the company; rather they would be expected to be working on separate projects with a purpose/objective.
- managing projects or programs is the primary focus of their role.
- that the projects or programs have a clear purpose and timeframe. Projects generally cannot be ongoing.
