    Have you ever seen a pilot trying to land a plane in extreme weather conditions with only one engine, a nervous flight attendant breathing down their neck, AND wearing stilettos? No? Us neither, but we imagine it takes a lot of focus, precision, and attention to the minutest of details.

    Our client, a leader in international fund management and impact investment, is looking for a Company Secretary that can match this energy.

    We’re looking for a unique candidate, one with a legal background and more than ‘just an interest’ in the renewable energy and sustainability industry. Experience in the fields of funds and investment on a corporate level are a must-have if you want us to even glance at your CV.

    Your primary role will be to manage all of the governance related functions of all of our client’s Funds, ultimately ensuring that directors and committee members act according to both national and international regulations. You’ll need to be the law, keeping everyone in line in the way that only our mothers can.

    As the Company Secretary, you would be responsible for the general day-to-day governance of the company. This may include the preparation, planning, and scheduling of any and all meetings, agendas, and the management of all official documentation. Maintaining governance registers and trackers will also fall into your realm of responsibility.

    Education Requirements

    • A degree from a reputable university is non-negotiable; LLB, Bcom Law, Ba Law, or LLB equivalent
    • Company Secretarial & Governance qualification preferable

    Experience Requirements

    • 4+ years post-qualification experience in a corporate governance or company secretarial role with the Financial Service industry
    • Embedded knowledge of compliance and regulations related to corporate governance and housekeeping


    As Company Secretary, your role will be to embody the authoritative figure, ensuring adherence to regulatory frameworks akin to the discipline instilled by a motherly presence. You will be expected to offer guidance and enforce compliance among directors and committee members in accordance with prevailing regulations and legislation.

    Your primary responsibility as Company Secretary entails overseeing the day-to-day governance of the organization. This encompasses the meticulous preparation, coordination, and scheduling of all meetings and agendas, as well as the management of official documentation. Additionally, the maintenance of governance registers and trackers will fall under your purview, ensuring organizational compliance and transparency.


    • Able to draft agendas, consolidate secretarial records, take meeting minutes, company law and filings, and act as support during internal & statutory audits
    • Strong interpersonal skills
    • Not afraid of expressing an opinion
    • High performer under pressure
