In June we launched ICSA Advance, a service allied to our main jobs board that allows organisations to post short-term work experience or trainee positions. This is designed to help prospective or current ICSA students or recent graduates gain the work experience they need to get a foot on the career ladder. Please visit icsa.org.uk/advance for more information.
In the autumn we will be launching Insight Days with DMJ, our strategic recruitment partner. DMJ is working with several FTSE companies’ company secretarial departments to host half-day sessions that will introduce interested people to the company secretarial career. These days will be an opportunity for prospective ICSA students and recent university graduates to be given a taster of what life is like as a company secretary before making the decision to pursue the career. Look out for further details on the website and in In the Loop, as well as on social media.
The aim of both of these initiatives is to promote the profession more widely and open it up to new entrants who may never have considered becoming a company secretary.
