The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation declared this post unclaimed.
The profession of a stenographer was officially abolished in Russia. The order on this was signed by the Minister of Labor and Social Protection Maxim Topilin.
The Ministry of Labor of the Russian Federation acknowledged that the posts “Secretary-stenographer”, “Stenographer” and “Managing Typewriter Bureau” are no longer in demand. They will be removed from the Qualification directory of positions of managers, specialists and other employees.
Previously, for the work of a stenographer it was necessary to have at least a secondary education and be able to type text at a rate of 110 words per minute. Basically, this profession was preserved in the courts, where it is necessary to conduct audio protocols of meetings. However, more often it is done by secretaries typing text on a computer.
