The Average Salary of an Administrative Coordinator


Administrative coordinators handle advanced clerical functions. As a coordinator, you implement administrative systems, monitor projects, resolve administrative problems, coordinate operations between departments and often supervise others. Skills required include knowledge of system processes, ability to foster client relationships and skills in developing standards. You must also have good communication, writing, research and management skills. Depending on the size of the company, there are numerous opportunities to move up.

  • According to the Glassdoor job site, the national average salary for an administrative coordinator is $42,000 a year as of June 2014. Career Builder reports an average yearly salary of $44,031 as of July 2014, though actual salaries vary by location. For example, Career Builder reports that an administrative coordinator averages $45,874 a year in California, $41,014 a year in Kansas, $40,806 in Florida and $32,032 in Maine. Many employers prefer a bachelor's degree and at least one year of experience.

Advancement Opportunities

  • Some administrative coordinators move on to become executive administrative coordinators. This job pays an average salary of $51,970 a year as of July 2014, according to Career Builder. Qualifications may include a master's degree and experience working with executives. Those looking for even higher pay can become administrative services managers, who earned a median income of $81,080 a year as of May 2012, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The BLS reports that these managers "plan, direct and coordinate supportive services" for a company.
