The Institute of Chartered Secretaries & Administrators (ICSA) is keen to raise awareness of the company secretarial profession, and that of the chartered secretary, amongst students and careers advisers.

AGCAS is seeking a liaison officer (ALO) for the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), the professional body that exists to support the science, art and practice of building services engineering.

We are re-advertising now as CIBSE is keen to maintain the link with AGCAS and we recognise that our first attempt was at a time of year when many members may have been away from the office.
