NEDExchange encouraging retired people to become non-executive directors

NEDExchangeLogoThe Non-Executives Director Exchange is a platform that helps companies find a highly skilled individual to serve as a non-executives director – for free.

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.

One thought on “NEDExchange encouraging retired people to become non-executive directors

  1. I completely agree. The encouragement should be heavily pressed for those that are retired who already have the necessary skills and expertise. Especially those who are matched with the right industry and organisation. However, this topic can be a heat wave with many people; the issue of developing technologies, how the industry has changed etc can really influence some boards to increasingly recruit young non-execs. However I think as non-exec roles are much more of a part time role – retired personnel can have a great influence on some boards.
