London South Bank University (LSBU) is a modern, dynamic university with a long history of leading the way in applied education and practice-led learning. With over 17,000 students and 2,000 staff from over 130 countries, we work together to foster the development of graduates, ready to address business and societal challenges.
The University created LSBU Group, a unique and growing partnership of secondary, further and higher education providers in south London. LSBU Group is made up of four organisations and was created in 2019 after LSBU oversaw the first merger of its kind between a university and college.
We are now seeking to appoint the Company Secretary for the LSBU Group. This role is key to the quality and performance of fundamental governance and compliance activities which provide the foundation for success in delivering the LSBU Group’s strategy.
Reporting to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic Framework), the Company Secretary will be the Board and executive leadership team’s primary expert advisor on corporate governance and related compliance matters, providing information, insight and analysis to inform Board-level decision making. The role provides governance and secretariat services to the Group’s governance committees and manages colleagues responsible for the delivery of services to the Board and its committees. The post-holder will also be responsible for monitoring developments in governance and committee management and will ensure that the Group complies with the requirements of the Office for Students, Ofsted and other regulators, and with governance best practice.
You will bring knowledge and understanding of the law and practice relating to company administration, governance and compliance requirements in higher education. You will have proven experience of managing institutional governance and committees at a senior level in a large and complex organisation. You will also demonstrate a commitment to equality and diversity and an understanding of its practical application.
