Would you like a career with big earning potential and the opportunity to advise at Board/Director/Senior Manager level? Do you like corporate law, finance, and corporate governance? You might want to consider the ICSA qualification – many law graduates do.
It’s the qualification to become a Chartered Secretary – it’s a PA role, right? Wrong! A Chartered Secretary is not a PA or a typist. Far from it! Think Home Secretary or Secretary General of the UN. It’s a very wide ranging, senior level job where you advise senior staff on core legislative issues relating to the organisation.
Take a look at the ICSA you tube link where Chris Taylor, Deputy Company Secretary at BSkyB Group PLC and Lola Emetulu, (solicitor) and Deputy Company Secretary at Reckitt Benckiser Group plc discuss their roles, day-to-day tasks and the skills required to work as a Chartered Secretary.
