Contract Type:
Permanent role
Reference Number:


Our client is a multi-billion turnover organisation with tens of thousands of employees across the UK and beyond. The company operates in a highly competitive industry sector and its products and services are used by millions of people every day.

Having recently beefed up the secretarial function, they are now looking to hire again, to assist in the role out of a large, pan European governance project. The team could benefit from increased support from a variety of differently skilled individuals. You might have a company secretarial background, or be a solicitor trained in corporate law and holding an interest in company secretarial and governance matters. If you have sufficient years experience, you might also come from a paralegal or contract manager background.

The primary responsibility will be to support the implementation phase of large scale new governance arrangements. There will also be some of the usual 'business as usual' company secretarial work that a major plc requires. If you are also interested in broadening the scope of the role, there might be the opportunity to get involved in assisting the corporate team on occasional M&A projects, group restructurings or other general corporate matters; and varied compliance and regulatory projects e.g. around data protection, environmental or health and safety matters.

The role is initially offered on a 12 month fixed term and as the business is growing that department, there may be the prospect of a permanent appointment at the end of the term. The role is based near Newcastle, and there might be a possible to work 4 days a week, or a day a week from home. Salary will be in the region of £50,000, and we'd like someone to start as soon as possible.

Please get in contact without delay if this might be of interest.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
