Company Secretary

£60,000 – 70,000 + Bonus, West London

If you are looking to develop your career while working in a stimulating and fast-paced environment and are looking for a chance to ‘make your mark’ as the first fully-fledged Company Secretary of a burgeoning group, please get in touch.

This role will initially be completely remote working until a phased return to their office in West London is implemented in the new year.
