It is the responsibility of a company secretary to provide administrative support and guidance to company directors about the running of their organisations, with a particular focus on compliance with all legal and statutory requirements from AGMs and annual reports, to insurance and health and safety. Company secretaries must gain the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators qualification. It is also helpful to have gained professional commercial work experience, or to have come from an accountancy or law background. Work involves financial and HR administration, managing office space, administering pension schemes and share issues, and keeping a register of shareholders and liaising with them on behalf of the company.
