How to Add or Remove Administrators from your Organisation’s LinkedIn Company Page

by LinkedIn Company Page

I’m spending more and more time these days training professionals who’ve been allocated the task of managing their organisation’s LinkedIn company page. In some cases, these individuals have some knowledge of managing their organisation’s online presence, and in other cases, this is the person’s first experience with the responsibility of being the LinkedIn Company Page admin.

This article is part of our LinkedIn Company Page Admin’s guide to managing LinkedIn Company Pages and will help you get started with adding and removing admins for your LinkedIn company page.

 How to Add an Admin to your Organisation’s LinkedIn Company Page

  1. Sign in to your Page admin centre. Here’s how.
  2. In admin view, click the Admin tools dropdown at the top of the page and select Page admins.

4. Type the name of the member you’d like to add in the Add new admin by name… text field. Click Save changes.

Please note – if you’re reading this and are having problems accessing your organisation’s LinkedIn company page and don’t know who your organisation’s admin is (a common problem), please contact me and I can share the experience of clients who’ve managed to gain access to a company page that was auto generated by LinkedIn.

    Hi Karen. It’s Harriet here from JDA Architects (and YTM). We have a company page that was set up years ago and I can’t find out who the administrator was (or maybe it was auto generated). I need to remove it or get access to update it as it is irrelevant to the current business and out of date. Is there an easy way to do this?

      Hi Harriet and thanks for your comment. If you can not locate the person who has admin access (it’s normally whoever worked for the firm first), it may have been generated by LinkedIn. In this case you must have an email address with the organisation’s name listed on your profile, have the company page listed on your experience section and then log a request with LinkedIn help via their website at https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/1187/getting-help-and-contacting-linkedin-customer-service Note – the link for help is located once you first click through this page on the topic you are seeking help with. Near the footer, I believe. Give them as much detail as you can, tell them you think it’s been auto generated by LinkedIn, and that you are a representative / owner of the page, have the email on your profile and the company page listed in your experience section. Please let me know how you go! Thanks, Karen
