My journey to my first non-executive director position

Earlier this year, Practical Law published my article, Non-executive directors: my journey to my first NED position. It includes some background on my career and provides tips on what I  learned when I was working towards my first NED role. For example:

  • Join a NED support organisation to help you on the journey.
  • Prepare your NED CV.
  • It takes time to apply.
  • NED roles vary by complexity and remuneration but are all competitive.
  • Persevere through the rejections.
  • Look for roles where your skills match.
  • Follow your passions.
  • Prepare for the interview.
  • Do your organisation and sector due diligence.
