The Administration and Support Services sector is made up of organisations in employment, travel, call centres, business services, contract staff, cleaning services, secretarial services, contract packing, gardening services and pest control.
The sector includes 90,600 organisations and employs 399,600 people.

Google is the leading example of how a database can be used to match an enquiry with an answer, so it is easy to understand how “search” and “matchmaking” tools can be used across the sector.
