A general office clerk has many responsibilities in the office. He/she types letters and other correspondence, mails out letters and receives and distributes the incoming mail. He/she may answer a multiline phone and routes the phone calls to the appropriate people. The general office clerk may also make copies, send faxes, send and receive UPS and Fed Ex shipments. He/she may greet customers and visitors and set up meetings and appointments for various people in the company. The office clerk may also be in charge of ordering all needed and requested office supplies and he/she may schedule and organize maintenance and check ups on all of the office equipment. So, in general, there are several things that a general office clerk would do. It would be a good idea to check with the company to see if there are any specific duties, but the above list are general responsibilities of the general office assistant.

An office clerk is a person who works in an organisation and handles all the accounts, book keeping and correspondence of the company. He is in charge of the financial statements and records of the company. He has to keep a note of all the daily expenses and incomes of the company and tally the balance sheet at the end of the year. He is mainly involved with the office's paper work. If a company does not have a secretary, the office clerk is in charge of the smooth flow of the company on a daily basis. He has to order the regular supplies such as stationary. He has to make calls for company purposes. All the correspondence of the company is handled by the clerk.

Duties of General Office Clerks

General office clerks typically do the following:

  • Answer and transfer telephone calls or take messages
  • Sort and deliver incoming mail and send outgoing mail
  • Schedule appointments and receive customers or visitors
  • Provide general information to staff, clients, or the public
  • Type, format, or edit routine memos or other reports
  • Copy, file, and update paper and electronic documents
  • Prepare and process bills and other office documents
  • Collect information and perform data entry

Rather than performing a single specialized task, general office clerks have responsibilities that often change daily with the current needs of the employer.
