Group Company Secretary

We are partnering a long-established PLC with substantial assets and a high-quality senior management team operating from several key global locations headquartered in London.

The company has an opportunity for an accomplished Company Secretary to join the senior management team who can provide company secretarial services to the Board and the Executive Committee and to their various sub-committees.

The incumbent will play a central role in the corporate governance and general administration of the PLC. In particular concerning the relationships between the Company and its shareholders and regulators, and between Company management and the non-executive directors.

This is a senior leadership role with a clear remit within the company secretarial function. However, there is significant opportunity for this individual to be involved in a broad scope of management and input to both day to day activity and strategic direction.

You will be well-versed in the review and update of policies and procedures relating to governance and recognised market best practice, recruiting, induction briefing and subsequent training of non-executive directors and the provision of advice to Board members on their duties and on general corporate compliance.  

You will be a qualified Company Secretary and/or lawyer with relevant experience at a senior level within a UK listed company environment. As a self-starter, you will enjoy interacting with a high calibre International team and have a sound understanding of corporate governance issues and knowledge of the London Stock Exchange listing requirements

You are a highly effective communicator who is well-organised who can manage multiple competing tasks and priorities within tight time frames. You will be prepared to undertake short business travel trips (within Europe) several times a year, as required.

The right candidate will enjoy a highly competitive salary together with substantial incentives and relish the chance to join a market leading business with aspirations for continued growth and development. This is an exceptional opportunity for a consummate professional seeking a long-term career move.
