It’s true that the larger and more complex a business becomes, so too do the administrative and regulatory tasks associated with its smooth operation. That said, even small companies and start-ups at the beginning of their growth journey have a lot of duties when it comes to statutory and compliance requirements, so having a specialist on your side is an investment that pays for itself from day one. 

What does a company secretary do? 

When you take on a company secretary, you need to know that they can effectively tackle a wide range of duties and deliver them to the highest standard. Their skill set has to include the following in order for their work to remain precise and consistent: 
Proficient in all things finance 
Skilled in governance, corporate law and business administration 
A finger on the pulse of the latest developments in accounting, legislation, compliance and the wider economic world 
Acutely aware of your company’s mission, ethos, short-term goals and long-term vision 
Confident in offering honest, practical and insightful advice on your ongoing business strategy 
When you consider all of the above, which are absolute must-have attributes, we’re sure you’ll agree that being a company secretary is an incredibly technical and demanding role. 

How do they work within the company? 

A company secretary also needs to be invested in your company’s financial health, perpetual growth and overall infrastructure. As a result, part of their role is to advise the company directors, management team and the board if applicable of how the company is performing. 
This requires two mind sets that work in unison with one another: first, a commitment to understanding the ins and outs of the business and explaining changes in clear terms; second, a passion for providing realistic advice on how to overcome obstacles and reach new milestones.
