You will either be legally qualified or have strong company secretarial experience - which will enable you to build successful working relationships with, and communicate effectively with, colleagues, both inside and outside the function.

Other areas of work in the role include:

· Provide support on legal and corporate governance related matters
· Support The Board with governance processes to ensure the organisation remains compliant with legal requirements and external benchmarks.
· Provision of a comprehensive secretarial and legal support service to the board and board committees and the Charitable Foundation.
· Provision of legal advice to support projects and activities undertaken by the Charitable Foundation.
· Draft and review Board and Board Committee policies, papers and minutes seek approvals from senior management, Executive and Non-Executive Directors as needed.
· Skilled in producing high quality minutes and live minuting meetings.
· Assist with corporate governance aspects of the Annual Report & Accounts and AGM, including review and approval of AGM communications.
· Review Board and Board-Committee minutes and the Board decision log to ensure accuracy.
· Manage all corporate governance aspects of Board Committees and the Charitable Foundation.
· Complete all necessary annual returns with Companies House and the Charities Commission and keep up to date the company's registers.
