The salary you can expect to earn from a business support role will vary depending on several factors, including location, experience and the job profile itself. 

As an indication though, an administrator working in Dublin could expect to earn €29,000-€33,000 a year, while a receptionist in Dublin can receive €27,000-€30,000. Regionally, these figures will likely be closer to the €28,000 mark. 

Moving up in seniority, an office manager working in Dublin could earn in the region of €40,000 per year, while this can be slightly lower regionally.

There are various business support jobs available, such as sales, HR and import/export administrators, along with receptionist roles and office manager positions. 

As these roles are needed across almost every sector, not every business support job will be the same, and even different departments within the same organisation may have different duties and ways of working. 

This will differ depending on the exact job profile, with some being purely administrative in nature, while others may have managerial duties. 

In most cases, the key responsibility of a business support role is to assist other employees with day-to-day business to ensure operations can run effectively. Depending on your role, you may also have more customer- and client-facing interactions. 

You will likely need to manage correspondence, record and enter information, schedule meetings and appointments, handle core office equipment and answer enquiries from internal or external sources.
