Board Packages – NED & C-suite
There has never been a better time to be a non-executive director. Today’s business leaders face an increasingly complex set of challenges and consequently look beyond their organisations to access the expert skills and guidance they need to drive the business forward.
Taking into account the recent updates to the UK Corporate Governance Code for publicly listed companies and the Wates Corporate Governance Principles for Large Private Companies, it’s clear that the rise and role of the non-executive director is here to stay.
Boards are changing. Many are also keen to embrace the potential and positive impact that diversity offers. What hasn’t changed is the requirement for a unique, specialised board CV. Whether you are an aspiring or transitioning board member, NED, chair or C-suite executive, your CV needs to market the value you will bring to your target role.
A board CV differs from an executive CV in context, focus, purpose, audience and outcome – though not in length. You still have a limited opportunity to market yourself for interview and prove your effectiveness at this senior level.
Taking on a NED member can be a risk to the organisation, whether it is a top corporate, start up, NGO or public sector body. City CV understand how to shape your CV, LinkedIn profile and executive bio to enable the board to recognise, and have confidence in, your authority, your organisational fit and the value you will add to boardroom dynamics.
