We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers, we have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.

This role is LIVE as recently confirmed by our client, interviews will be conducted via video calls.

The successful candidate will be a key member of the team from the start, whilst also working alongside other colleagues in the wider company secretary team, providing mutual support across the practice.

Responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

• Oversight and management of the company secretarial function as such tasks relate to the firm's clients

• Supporting corporate transactions, including drafting board resolutions, shareholder resolutions, waivers and consents, as well as ensuring company books are updated and share certificates and Companies House filings are prepared
• Acting as an initial point of contact for client queries (internal and external)
• Preparing and filing dormant company accounts
• Arranging formation of new companies
• Assisting with company re-organisations and undertaking due diligence of company books and Companies House during investment rounds.

Key skills and experience:

• Knowledge of relevant legal and regulatory requirements, particularly the UK Companies Act 2006 and knowledge of corporate governance principles and practices.
• Ambition to develop real expertise in all aspects of company secretarial law (training will be provided). ICSA qualification is not essential, however a solid corporate transactional background is a must.
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
• Effective team player - able to work effectively in an established, close-knit team.
• Excellent technical ability and solid drafting skills.
• A keen interest in early stage, technology-focused businesses.
• Experience of running a sizeable caseload on own initiative, with high level of organisational and time-management skills.
• Experience of building relationships with new and existing clients both in person and over the telephone.
