Latest Roles

Our client seeks to recruit a Deputy Company Secretary to report directly to the Head of Legal/Co Sec, you will be expected to maintain a close working relationship with the Chair, Committee Chairs, Directors and Leadership Team and, within the department, the Head of Regulation and Compliance. This role will suit an experienced candidate used to operating at C-Suite and Board level, someone who will have immediately credibility at senior levels and who is comfortable communicating at all levels within the business. A proactive approach will be required, the Head of Legal/Co Sec's role takes her increasingly in other directions so she would like someone pretty self-sufficient, and equally as passionate about governance, and keeping up to date with changes as she is, so someone used to horizon scanning and keen to keep on top of best practice would suit them well. She would welcome an “ideas” person. The company, team and role is growing - so it is fast paced and there is plenty to get your teeth into!

The company is not currently listed, although it is run as if it is, the sector is regulated and minutes can be scrutinised. You will have the main responsibility along with the wider finance team for organising the annual report and accounts process, and will be responsible for drafting the corporate governance section. There is EA/PA support to assist with the general meetings administration/Board Support work. There may be further recruitment into the team shortly, so a bit of previous management experience would be useful too.

This will be a full time role. In terms of location, this will depend on the business needs, all Board/Remco meetings will need to be attended in person, but if hybrid working is preferred, minuting write ups can be done from home etc, so it will probably average out at 2-3 days in the office overall, depending on what is happening in the business. A full job description is available on request.
