Vacancy for Company Secretary

Here at the 'Clan Project', we are approaching a pivotal point in our undertaking, with the construction of the mainframes of 72010 'Hengist', expected to start imminently.

With this in mind, we are keen to strengthen the organisation's Management Team and are looking for individuals who have an interest in new build steam locomotives and, who would like to join us as we press forward.

In the first instance, we are looking for someone with the knowledge and skills to perform the role of 

Company Secretary 

This role would, we envisage, encompass the following duties:

  • Safekeeping and archiving of company records
  • Efficient administration of the project, ensuring compliance with statutory obligations
  • Organising meetings, venues, agendas and Minutes
  • Correspondence with Companies House, the Charities Commission, other Statutory Bodies and interested parties

This is not an exclusive list and may be amended as the needs of the business dictate.

Applicants should be aware that this is a voluntary position, as are all other positions on the Management Team, and no remuneration or benefits are to be expected, other than verified expenses, which will be reimbursed.

Applications, in writing, should be made to:

The Directors
The Standard Steam Locomotive Company Limited
97 Pingle Road

June 12th Update

It seems like ages since the last update. No we haven't been taking a break, quite the opposite! Plans are underway with Rileys to put together a build plan, the bolting arrangement has been agreed, the last of the components are being machined and we continue to collect the certification documents.

One curve ball has been the introduction of updated Rail Industry Standards (RIS). This has involved some extra documentation which has been passed to our certification body.

So a quiet month in terms of big news but a very busy period under the surface.

Calling all those interested in seeing progress with 72010 Hengist…

The Annual General Meeting of the ‘Clan Projects’ parent organisation, The Standard Steam Locomotive Company Limited, will be held at ‘Steam’ the Museum of the Great Western Railway, Firefly Avenue, Swindon SN2 2EY, at 14:00 on the 15 th of July 2017, in the Sir Daniel Gooch Suite.

Members and non-members are welcome to attend, though only members with a valid 2017 membership card or life membership card may vote on motions placed to the meeting. So if you want to meet the team behind the construction of this new locomotive, why not come along and talk to us? Better still, become a member, and have a voice at the meeting itself.

We look forward to meeting you!
