Administrative?
Administrative 
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

  Hint: Smart Futures
I saw the position advertised in the local paper, filled in an application form and was called for an interview.

Communication skills are very important in my line of work so I was set the task of doing a presentation at the interview stage. I was then given scenarios to deal with and asked about my previous experience.

I also sat a computer literacy test. I was delighted when I got a letter offering me the position.
