Company Secretarial Manager job - Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth or Truro

Your new company
Our client are an expanding entrepreneurial law firm, who are seeking a Company Secretarial Manager to lead their Company Secretarial offering to pioneer the growth of the firm's vibrant company secretarial division. This position will strengthen and develop the function, both internally and externally.

This is a great opportunity to expand your career in an entrepreneurial and successful environment. Our client is flexible as to where and how this role is fulfilled, and you may be interested in working part or full time, based from Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth or Truro - with a blend of office and home working.

Your new job
With experience of working independently to manage your own portfolio of company secretarial work, you will be accustomed to attending and minuting for client Board meetings, and drafting shareholder resolutions. In this key client facing role, you will be the first point of contact for clients with company secretarial requests, taking responsibility for managing their requirements and expectations day to day. You will be completing Company House filings and working closely with a number of internal stakeholders with regards to all necessary company secretarial work.

Day to day you will take responsibility for managing and motivating a small team who already possess a good Company Secretarial skills and systems knowledge. There is real scope here to further develop and define the Company Secretarial offering, and your positive 'self-starter' attitude and enthusiasm to accelerate new opportunities and improve ways of working will be very much encouraged. As such, this is an excellent opportunity if you thrive in a busy client facing role, with great support and engagement as part of the wider Corporate team.

What you'll need to succeed

You might be in a similar role elsewhere, or perhaps are currently an Assistant to a Company Secretary and feel ready to take the step up into a new and challenging position. You will have a positive, commercially informed approach with an entrepreneurial flair and natural enthusiasm for building strong networks.

You will be accustomed to working with people at differing levels and bringing the best out in them. You may have already attained full or part qualification with ICSA, or as a Chartered Governance professional (GCG / ACG - or equivalent) or be interested in working towards one of these recognised professional memberships, but your experience of working within a fast-paced environment leading on Company Secretarial matters is more important to our client. Ideally you will be familiar with using Blueprint company secretarial software, although training can be provided. You will have gained prior experience in a professional services environment and benefited from exposure to a broad range of company secretarial work. With energy and enthusiasm for this work, you will be a 'self-starter' who possesses an entrepreneurial mindset and is motivated to grow the company secretarial team and company secretarial offering of the business over time.

What you'll get in return
This incredible opportunity allows you to grow your career and develop your professional network in an enthusiastic and focused environment. You will also receive a competitive salary, as well as having access to a range of wellbeing and personal benefits.
