Non Executive Directors

Choosing to become a Non Executive Director (NED) provides you with an opportunity to use skills and knowledge gained in an executive environment. The areas in which you could become involved will vary from doing something worthy in the third sector or supporting enterprising organisations. There is a huge amount of information available for anyone considering taking on a NED role.
