In Ireland, the job of a Company (or Chartered) Secretary is growing in importance throughout the market. The Companies Act 2014 stipulates that every Company must utilise a Company Secretary to ensure that its Directors are operating in compliance with relevant Corporate Governance rules and regulations. The Company Secretary is a Legal Advisor and the Company’s named representative on legal documentation. When hiring a Company Secretary, many companies and law firms insist that the new hire is qualified as a member of the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA). Although, many Companies utilise the services of a Company Secretarial department in an Accountancy or Legal Firm or a boutique Company Secretarial practice.
