DMJ launched the Insight Day Initiative in September 2016 to help raise the profile of the company secretarial profession amongst students and graduates. The initiative is supported by ICSA: The Governance Institute and is marketed to universities and law schools across the UK.
A company secretarial career is fast becoming a career choice, rather than a job you
fall into. Our responsibility is to address the challenges faced to prevent a longer-term shortage at a time when interest in the profession is rising.
Some of the UK’s leading companies are hosting events at their offices to demonstrate what becoming a company secretary entails. Between them, they've already inspired over 400 students and graduates to secure their first role or embark on the ICSA qualification.
Promote awareness of the profession to attract high quality individuals.
Expose top students to a rewarding career they might not otherwise have considered.
Raise the profile of the company secretarial profession and prevent a longer term skills shortage at a time when interest in the profession is rising.
“The Insight Day was a great opportunity to understand how varied, exciting and rewarding a company secretarial career can be. It has left me with a better understanding of the remit of the role, the challenges and the opportunities and is definitely a career I wish to pursue in the future.”
"I had a brilliant day, it was extremely useful and provided me a wealth of information and enabled me to compare the role within different sectors and the work culture which otherwise I wouldn't have had the opportunity to explore. Thank you to DMJ for organising. "
"Insight days are an invaluable way to increase the profile of the company secretarial profession and it's a great way for us to give something back to the profession. "
