Hiring an Admin Person for Your Tradie Business

Hiring an Admin Person for Your Tradie Business: When and Why?

Many tradie business owners often wonder when the right time is to hire an admin person. It’s a common question that arises when businesses are in the growth phase or have just started out. Often, the concern revolves around affordability. However, from a strategic perspective, NOT hiring and admin person is holding the owner and the business back.

Let’s explore the benefits of hiring an admin person and discuss when it’s the right time to bring them on board.

The Value of Time

By employing an admin person for a significant portion of the work week, you can regain valuable time to focus on more critical activities. In just a couple of months, the admin person’s support should allow you to reclaim additional days that can be utilised more effectively, whether it’s generating income or tackling essential tasks. As a tradesperson, your expertise lies in your trade, not in administrative tasks like bookkeeping. Allocating these responsibilities to an admin person who excels in such areas ensures that the work is performed efficiently and allows you to concentrate on activities that align with your skill set and income potential.

Leveraging Expertise

As a plumber, electrician, or any other tradie, your primary income comes from performing your trade. However, tasks such as bookkeeping or administrative duties might not be your strong suit. Hiring an admin person allows you to tap into their expertise, ensuring these critical tasks are handled proficiently. Rather than spending time on activities that aren’t your core competency, you can entrust them to someone who specialises in those areas. This not only improves the quality of the work but also enhances overall business efficiency, as the admin person can devote their full attention to these tasks.

Delegating and Expanding Responsibilities

Once you’ve hired an admin person, you can gradually delegate various activities, freeing up your time to focus on more crucial aspects of your business. To assist you in this process, I have prepared a list of tasks that you can delegate or train your admin person to handle effectively. By downloading this list (available at the end of this blog post), you can identify specific areas where their support can make a significant impact. Furthermore, as you become accustomed to working with your admin person, you’ll likely identify additional tasks to add to their responsibilities, creating a dynamic and productive working relationship.

Employing an admin person for your tradie business can be a game-changer. It allows you to regain valuable time, leverage your expertise, and focus on income-generating activities. Instead of trying to handle all aspects of your business, delegating administrative tasks to a skilled professional empowers you to excel in your trade and drive business growth.
