Microsoft Excel is a key part of many office roles; it is particularly important to jobs with an element of finance, accounts or bookkeeping. However, many admin, PA, sales staff and other roles require proficient skills in Excel. Many employers will test their new employees on their level of Excel skills and will not hire staff who fail their tests.
