Junior Company Secretary

Job Title: Junior Company Secretary

Are you a recently/partly qualified Chartered Secretary, considering working in Dublin or considering a change of location outside Dublin? If yes, then here is a rare opportunity not to be missed.  

Dublin is an expensive city to live in, so expect to see a large chunk of your salary go out on rent, just to live in the city centre. Have you considered a more local firm, where the commute would be much easier; where the cost of living is much less, and even where the cost of renting might disappear?


If this sounds interesting, then here is what we are offering.

UHY are seeking to take on board an “Junior Company Secretary”. Someone just starting out or someone with 1-2 years experience in a professional services firm / law firm and can offer you a competitive package.

Louth, with offices also in Balbriggan and Dublin. This particular position will be available in Dundalk. With our flexi-time working arrangements, it gives you the opportunity to get your “work-life balance” right.
