UK Companies are increasingly employing non-executive directors to provide experienced independent advice and guidance to help them succeed. Many of the most suitable candidates are older people, recently retired and looking for a new challenge. The platform matches such people with companies that need their skills.
Non-Executive Directors could do a few hours a month or many hours a week depending on the role. For some it is an opportunity to give back, for others an opportunity to earn additional income, for others an opportunity to use their skills in a new sector.
