What is the difference between the duties of a secretary, an office manager and a manager assistant?

Secretary, office manager, assistant manager ... Those people who are not connected with recruiting, often believe that this is the same position. But people who professionally perform search and selection of specialists, know exactly what is wrong. But in what all the same a difference and how to carry out correct selection of the candidate for similar posts? Next we will try to find the answer to this question. However, we will immediately note that we will not seek for an answer ourselves, but by enlisting the support of Gloria, whose main specialization is recruiting (Kiev, Ukraine). This company has been searching for and recruiting specialists for more than 10 years, and the recruitment service is in demand here not only for domestic enterprises, but also for firms from abroad.
 
For starters, let's look at who the office manager is. So, this term hides a specialist whose main task is the correct, rational organization of the entire workflow in the office. In addition, this person should solve all current administrative and management issues, especially those that can stop / slow down the company's work.
 
Office manager, if you compare this employee with the secretary and (or) the assistant manager, has more authority. He can and should be responsible for supplying the office with material and technical tools (printer paper, water for the cooler, etc.). The office manager can and should manage the work of junior staff (couriers, cleaners and even all the same secretary). If the company interacts with foreign, out-of-town offices / suppliers / partners, it is on the shoulders of the office manager that a meeting of incoming representatives at the airport, booking of hotel seats and the like takes place. And, finally, if the office or the company does not have its own kitchen / dining room, then it is the office-manager who is responsible for the organization of the food of the employees.
 
The duties of a secretary in some companies may echo the duties of an office manager. For example, sometimes secretaries organize a meeting of foreign guests and order a office for the office. But here the conduct of office work, answers to phone calls and scheduling a manager's working schedule are usually performed only by such employees.
 
And what should the assistant manager do? He can also schedule a manager's work schedule, but, in addition, often such employees are tasked with maintaining profiles in various social networks, receiving calls and working with e-mail. Moreover, the manager can very well turn to the assistant and for a personal task - picking up a thing from a dry cleaner, sending a personal parcel, etc.
 
Summarizing all of the above, you can draw the following conclusions about the specifics of the activities of office managers, secretaries and assistants. The former have the greatest powers. The latter work exclusively in the field of business interests of the company and its leader, while the assistants can carry out more personal assignments.
