Admin Org Chart

An administrative department organization structure typically consists of a department head or manager at the top, who is responsible for overall departmental operations and decision-making.

Underneath the department head are typically several levels of supervisors or managers, who are responsible for specific areas or functions within the department.

These managers may oversee teams of administrative staff, such as administrative assistants, receptionists, and clerical workers. Depending on the size and complexity of the department, there may also be specialized roles and positions, such as a human resources manager, a budget analyst, or a facilities manager.
