Vacancy on AGCAS Board of Directors - Company Secretary

AGCAS is looking for an enthusiastic member to join its Board of Directors in the role of Company Secretary. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the strategic management of AGCAS and to help the organisation make key decisions about its future development, especially how it can best support member services.

Being an AGCAS Director brings responsibilities, but it also confers significant benefits on both individual directors and their services, as a result of the professional development it offers, together with many opportunities to liaise with a wide range of members and stakeholders.

The role of Company Secretary involves a number of administrative, legal and statutory responsibilities, which are outlined in the Roles and Responsibilities of the AGCAS Board document (available below). A full induction will be given, however, and there is plenty of support available both from experienced AGCAS staff and from other members of the AGCAS Board.

The role will particularly appeal to someone who has an eye for detail, is well-organised and can communicate clearly and concisely. In addition, the role calls for good interpersonal skills and the ability to manage time effectively and to work to deadlines.

How to apply

We want the AGCAS Board to fully reflect the diversity of the AGCAS membership and so please don't feel you have to be from a certain sort of institution or have a particular role in your institution. In the first instance, you just need to supply the names of a nominator and seconder on a nomination form (available below). 

The position is tenable for three years. The closing date for nominations is Friday 27 January 2012.
