Company secretarial continues to see the most activity at assistant company secretary level.
There is currently a lot of activity in the financial services market in relation to company secretarial which could be a reflection of the continued attempts of the industry to bolster their governance teams. There are fewer senior positions and therefore fewer roles and candidates at the assistant company secretary level are moving to develop personally or to increase their salary, both of which are less important factors for more senior candidates.
The focus in the market is the continued need to find the highest calibre candidates, who are always in high demand. There have been no particular key sectors which have been hiring in the company secretarial space. Recruitment has been across the board.
