Due to an internal secondment we have a six-month vacancy for a Board Secretary. If you’ve never been one and don’t know what one is, please read on…it could still be for you.

Whatever your background, you’ll have fabulous written skills, be super organised, proactive and have good analytical skills. If you can demonstrate this, whatever your previous roles, please get in touch.

Main duties are:

  • Helping to support excellent governance – preparing and publishing agendas and some papers for our Board, taking minutes of the Board meetings and action and forward planning with the Leadership Team
  • Acting as a first point of contact with our Chair and board members, ensuring timely communication and coordinating and booking training etc
  • Providing some support to the Chief Executive, particularly on governance and regulation, ensuring we’re meeting deadlines

It would be hugely beneficial if you have some experience of operating in a regulatory environment, but most important is a passion for doing a first-rate job.
