Your systematic approach allows you to easily see the best way to execute a project or task.
Figuring out logistical problems is usually a breeze — or an enjoyable challenge.
Staying organised is second nature to you, and you keep lots of relevant information in your head.
Congratulations, you are the Coordinator. Efficient, practical and organised, you can whip any chaotic situation into shape — fast. In your spare time, you might be found in activities like building a collection, researching your family tree, or playing team sports.
Because you have a good head for data, information, and processes, you’re drawn toward jobs that involve administrative, behind-the-scenes tasks. If you’re looking for career inspiration, some good places to start are in the administration, finance or logistics sectors.
Making it look easy is the hardest thing in the world to do.”

More great career matches for you
There are several core transferable skills you’ll build upon throughout your career. To build a great career in the Coordinator cluster, you’ll want to focus on:
Customer service skills
Building effective relationships
While technical skills depend largely on the industry or occupation you’re in, here are some skills in demand across the Coordinator cluster.
Across many roles and sectors, clerical skills are in-demand. Broadly, these include basic computer operation, communication (verbal and written), time-management, organisation, and critical thinking — things that allow you to stay on top of your workload and manage tasks effectively.
While business administration skills overlap with clerical skills, they’re more focused on business operations and increasing productivity in the office. This skill set includes things like financial expertise, problem-solving abilities, hiring and recruitment, and motivating staff.
