Company Secretary / Clerk
A company secretary is an officer of the company who shares legal responsibilities with the directors for certain tasks that are required by the Companies Act. It has not been obligatory for private companies to appoint a company secretary Since 6 April 2008, though most companies continue to appoint.
A Clerk often acts as secretary to a board of an organisation other than a company (eg a Board of Governors at a University or College).
Why is it important?
Company secretaries/Clerks are often responsible for ensuring that an organisation complies with standard financial/legal practice and maintains standards of governance. Company secretaries/Clerks should have an understanding of the laws/regulations that affect their areas of work.
