How is the CSA role evolving in your firm? What can you do to develop the skills and capabilities of your administrative staff?
The modern accounting and advisory practice requires a high level of administrative support to free up the capacity and expertise of specialist advisors. No-where is this seen more than in the role that Client Service Administrators are taking in managing both client relationships and workflow at an administrative level.
The Client Service Administrator is an essential role that is evolving in almost every progressive professional firm. This person uses both technology and soft skills to provide an essential link between clients and the firm’s technical staff. In addition, they often add valuable support in relation to internal people management, systems development and marketing functions.

Our self-paced eLearning courses follow a 4-step process in relation to learning objectives:
All modules are structured with specific learning objectives and assessment tasks. Learners are expected to demonstrate that they understand learning objectives and can apply concepts through completion of the assessment tasks. A SMART action planning template is used to consolidate specific actions and to ensure that a timeframe for completion is established and followed. Regular review of progress is ensured through commitment to completing the course.
This course provided everything we were looking to get out of it, not only for our administration team. but also for our technical team. It was very eye-opening as to what we needed to improve as a firm. I will highly recommend this course to anyone thinking of participating.
I have really enjoyed this course. It has enabled me to think about my role within the firm in a different way, as someone who is capable of implementing changes instead of just processing tasks. I have become more proactive in my thinking and now able to challenge myself in my role. I'm also able to challenge my manager and the firm.
This course has given our firm the opportunity to really revisit the role of administration in managing workflow and clients. It's also given us the opportunity to critically review our administrative capacity and make some decisions about allocation of roles and responsibilities. The SMART action planning process is a great way to ensure that we walk away from the course with clear outcomes. A great course for any progressive firm.
