Office juniors forced out of job by automated office systems

Automated
office systems are forcing menial office juniors out of their jobs, according
to a survey published today.

The survey
by the recruitment company Adecco shows salaries for people employed to do
menial tasks such as filing have fallen by 14.8 per cent across the country.

In January
2000, office juniors earned £10,797 on average, compared with just £9,403 by
January 2001.

"The
office junior performing menial tasks is becoming largely unnecessary,"
said Diane Bradbury, Adecco director of UK operations.

"Many
simple tasks are not needed or have been replaced by automated systems, while
those who previously filled those positions have improved their skills to move
jobs.

"This
survey shows that better skills means better jobs, better money and better
prospects."
