Reporting directly to the Group Legal Director & Company Secretary and based in the Group's modern headquarters in the centre of Leeds, we are now looking for an Assistant Company Secretary / Team Administration Manager. The successful candidate will be responsible for all corporate administration duties within the Group, ensuring compliance with our obligations under the AIM Rules and MAR, for making all necessary corporate filings as well as supporting the business in its financial reporting and general Companies Act compliance requirements, overseeing the Group’s share option programme and assisting with the administration of its overseas subsidiaries. The successful candidate will also manage the administration of the Legal Services Department as a whole to optimise the operations of a large, multi-disciplinary team (50+ personnel) including budget control, billing and will also be responsible for the Group’s central repository of contract documentation (which will initially involve the implementation of a new document management system). This role involves the direct management of a team of two administration assistants.
The successful candidate is likely to have relevant company secretarial experience from a high quality business and may be part or fully ICSA qualified. We would also be interested to hear from candidates who are not ICSA qualified but are currently in an administration role who have the experience and potential to make a successful transition to the company secretarial environment and may wish to obtain formal qualifications whilst working. There is potential for some flexibility around the working hours for this position.
This is an excellent opportunity to join a supportive and high calibre team where proactivity and organisation will be key. You will have a high degree of autonomy in running the Company Secretarial function and will need to be comfortable working with a degree of administrative work, but in a fast-paced environment, to tight timescales, with the tenacity, confidence and resilience to deliver high quality results and outstanding customer service. The role will also require strong stakeholder management skills with the ability to influence and engage at all levels, liaising on a regular basis with the Chairman, CEO and CFO.
In return, we offer an excellent salary and benefits package commensurate with experience with exposure to a wide range of interesting work within a dynamic and expanding business.
