Board Direction offers a bespoke and candidate focused Non Executive Director (NED) & Advisory Board Member appointment service for clients across the Commercial, Government & Not for Profit (NfP) sectors.

Backed by a decade of international Non Executive Board Director search success, a total database of 50,000+ Non Executive Directors and far-reaching board connections via our tens of thousands of social media followers, we guarantee to find you a Non Executive Director worthy of your board. Further, as a boutique provider specialising only in Non Executive Board Recruitment, we do not have the large overheads of our competitors so we can offer something other than eye-watering fees.

Overall Recruitment Approach

To generate for you a list of appointable Non Executive or Advisory Board candidates we will be utilising our extensive national database of Non Executive Directors and Chairs. We do this through:

  • Complimentary advertising on the major social media platforms.

Our approach is supported by our deep recruitment experience earned over a decade of board appointments.

Why Board Direction?

√ Success & Reach: Backed by a decade of international non executive search success, a combined social media and email database 50,000 individuals and far-reaching board connections, we can offer a bespoke and candidate focused NED appointment service.

√ Passion: Beyond our low fees, experience and wide reach what separates us from others operating in this space is the passion we bring to the board appointment process. This passion is evident in all that we do – in our conversations with you, in our conversations with your candidates and in our conversations with your stakeholders. This passion counts more than you might think because any recruiter you use will be representing you to hundreds of (in our case to over 50,000) NEDs so it is essential that they are passionate about what they do. Without this, your reputation is at risk. We take this responsibility seriously.

√ Marketing & Reach: We don’t charge for advertising. Many in the market claim to conduct search services but then charge you to advertise your opportunity. We don’t. Having developed a massive database of Non Executive Directors and Chairs we have a ready-made search list that is larger than anyone else in the market. This means that we have the ability to market your opportunity to our database at a moments notice – something no one else can do.

√ Branding: We won’t be speaking to hundreds of potential candidates on your behalf we will be speaking with thousands! That means that up to 50,000 NEDs and Chairs will hear about your opportunity but also your brand via the unique message we craft for you. A powerful benefit that only Board Direction can offer.

√ Low Fees: We are a boutique provider (specialising only on Non Executive Search) and do not have the large overheads of our competitors so we can offer more competitive fees.
