I am trying to automate a repeating task when a it is transitioned from In Progress to Done, then create another task for the following month and specify a due date of the 1st week of the month.

I'm new to Jira, only a week in and working through our first sprint. I have multiple tasks that will repeat each month, so looking to set up those tasks with automation instead of having to recreate them ongoing.
I think we're using basic Jira, is Automation an add-in function, as I don't see it anywhere in my Jira? Or does it require Administrative access to set up automation?

You can do this via global rules to apply to all projects also. You'll need to be a Jira Admin/Site Admin, go to Jira Settings > System > Automation Rules (left-hand menu).
For more on using Automation For Jira see these help pages.
If you are using Server, then there is a free add-on called Automation For Jira Lite which has limited functionality. A full functioning paid add-on is also available (just drop Lite in the name :-)
Hi, @Andy Woodhouse !
Also, you`re able to create a due date
