These are exciting times at the RNLI. Through our continuous improvement programme, we are driving fast paced, transformational change that allows us to save more lives at sea in new and creative ways. We are engaging with different audiences, developing new products and finding even more effective and streamlined ways of running our lifesaving service and we are working in a highly regulated and changing legal environment.

We are subject to numerous regulators including the Charity Regulators, ICO, Companies House and the Fundraising Regulator. Everyone working for the RNLI contributes to saving lives at sea.

We are currently recruiting for an experienced Company Secretary to provide in-house company secretarial support to the RNLI, to ensure the charity and its subsidiaries comply with relevant legislation and regulations and to establish and maintain sound standards of corporate governance.

You will ensure that Trustee Board, committee meetings and subsidiary company meetings are properly constituted, as well as advising leaders of the charity on their roles and responsibilities.

To be considered, you will need:

- Significant experience as a company secretary
- Excellent knowledge of company secretarial governance and business practices, as well as legislation and regulations
- Knowledge and experience of UK charity law
- The ability to handle confidential information with discretion and integrity
- An ICSA qualification

As a Company Secretary, you will need excellent attention to detail and a highly organised approach to your work. Exceptional interpersonal and communication skills are also key.

The closing date for applications is the 25th February 2018, with interviews scheduled to be held on the 8th March 2018.

Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
