Board Appointments: The UK’s Leading Board Advertising and Non Executive Career Development Firm

Discover the Benefits of Board Appointments

‘Thanks to my Board Appointments membership my non-executive career is well underway. I secured two non executive board positions this year’ Karen (current Board Appointments Member)

Board appointments are potentially life and career changing. In fact, statistics have shown that people that have Board Directorships in addition to an executive role are: more appointable, earn more, are unemployed less and have better networks and connections. They are also able to future proof their careers better, have more successful retirements and weather unexpected career changes strongly.

However, finding Non Executive or Advisory Board opportunities is difficult and a highly competitive process with there being far more candidates than there are opportunities. Indeed, finding board vacancies themselves is a challenging and time consuming process that historically relied upon your personal networks, searching through newspapers, monitoring online job boards or waiting to be ‘tapped on the shoulder’ by a friend or recruiter. Furthermore, preparing a board CV/application that stands out is a lengthy process and one not easily accomplished. Not any more.

Board Appointments is the UK’s leading board career development and board vacancy advertising firm. We help put people on boards by providing everything required to get a Chair, Non Executive Directorship or Advisory Board Appointment. We do this in a number of ways but essentially, what we do is equip our members with a vast number of board opportunities and the skills required to ‘dare them not to appoint you‘. Simple. No other organisation can reference the success we have had in putting people on boards – no one!
