A network administrator will usually have a full time day of standard tasks like :

Checking a companies internet and network connections
Helping the help desk with any 1st Line Support calls that need escalating
Working on new IT projects to implement new Software/Hardware/Services
Checking IT Security
A small to medium business’ utilization of a Network or System Administrator however probably won’t keep them busy enough for the whole day. A good System Administrator will have scripts for most of these tasks and only get notified on failure and resolve adhoc!
Being a Network Administrator myself, it is too often that a business will then ask the Network Administrator to fulfill other tasks such as 1st Line Help Desk , roles that he would have been previously promoted from.
The solution ….. Rent a network Administrator , or rent a few network administrators giving you extra redundancy like your servers.
