Why advertise?


Governance & Compliance is the only magazine for company secretaries and their equivalents in the not-for-profit and public sectors. Our readers work in a range of roles, including as company or board secretaries in top FTSE companies, playing a crucial role in guiding and influencing board behaviours and performance. Others use their skills in private companies, charities/not-for-profit organisations and local government. Some work in practice, offering business and legal services.
Whatever the context, company secretaries are the focal point for independent advice about the conduct of business, governance and compliance. As such they have a powerful influence on a wide variety of business decisions, such as:

  • the appointment of external professional services and advisors – auditors, legal and financial services, pensions, insurance, property, facilities and other business services;
  • the recruitment and remuneration of directors and senior executives;
  • corporate structure.


Additionally, figures from the last Governance & Compliance readership survey show that the mean budget controlled by our readers is around £750,000.

Our readers really value Governance & Compliance magazine. More than half of the readership has been reading it for over eight years and the majority regard it as their prime source of invaluable industry news and practical advice. Around half of our readers keep the magazine for reference, revisiting it time and time again.

As specialists in their field company secretaries are highly sought-after employees – and Governance & Compliance magazine, along with govcompmag.com, forms the most effective way to reach the company secretarial recruitment market. Three quarters of readers peruse our recruitment section on a regular basis, while almost a third of visitors to the website head straight for the recruitment section. Being a Chartered Secretary is a rewarding career – the average household income for our readers in 2010 was £69,480, with 17% of the readers' households earning more than £100,000.
