ICAEW is a world leading professional membership organisation that promotes, develops and supports more than 147,000 members worldwide. We provide our members with knowledge and guidance, and ensure ICAEW Chartered Accountants are meeting the highest ethical and technical standards. As financial experts we  act in the public interest offering insights into business  and the economy that help to shape government policy and regulation.

Our professional conduct and regulatory committees support the operation of the Professional Standards department. The department is responsible for developing, maintaining and supporting high standards of practice and professional conduct.

We are looking for an assistant committee secretary who will support and monitor the work of our professional conduct committees to ensure effective discharge of their responsibilities. This will involve the issuing of agendas, attendance of meetings and minute taking. Using your legal knowledge and experience you will also support the Committee Secretary in ensuring reports are ready to be listed at committee. As the makeup of our committees evolves you will support the member and quorum needs through recruitment processes and by assisting in committee training events.

As the successful candidate you will be legally qualified, ideally with experience acting as a company secretary or in a similar position with a professional regulator. You will have strong verbal and written skills including minute taking. You will be highly organised with strong coordination experience, running each committee as its own time-bound project. While regulatory knowledge is advantageous, you must have the desire to invest time learning ICAEW’s bye-laws and Code of Ethics, along with each committee’s regulations and terms of reference.

In return we offer the opportunity to work for a friendly, leading-edge team in a truly innovative and forward thinking culture.

Send your CV and covering letter to with ‘Assistant Committee Secretary’ in the subject header or contact Chris Fox, Recruitment Manager on +44 (0)1908 248 185 for more information. 

Closing date: 30 October 2017.
