Non-Executive Director

With over a century of experience, the Institute of Directors (IoD) is the leading membership organisation for business leaders – championing the very best the business world has to offer. Supporting over 30,000 members from CEOs of global organisations and FTSE board members to directors in the public sector and start-up entrepreneurs.

With a prestigious history, Royal Charter and ambitious agenda for growth, it is an exciting time to join the IoD as they continue to provide world-class support and guidance with a mission of Better Directors, Better Economy, Better Business and Better Services.

The IoD is looking for a Non-Executive Director of the highest calibre. As a strategic figure, you will understand the role of a director, and believe in the IoD’s purpose and mission. As an independent Non-Executive Director, you will be highly commercial, providing advice and guidance, and be a real ambassador for the institute, ensuring governance is of the highest standard.

Having key relationships with the Chair, Director General and other board members, the role will quickly contribute to the IoD’s strategic direction and have a particular focus on driving future membership growth and strategies.

With demonstrable ability to provide real insight and make sound decisions at board level, you will have compelling leadership and commercial experience ideally supported by a background in the areas of international trade, legal, manufacturing, diversity or significant membership organisations.

Your track record will show compelling and insightful leadership in periods of change and growth, and an ability to introduce new ideas to a board.

With a commitment of six meetings per year and an opportunity for involvement in committee work, this is a key time to play a vital role supporting future business within a forward thinking and iconic organisation.

IoD Buckinghamshire and Milton Keynes Treasurer

The IoD operates a regional and branch organisation in order to reach members in their own locations.

You will be aware of various events that are run in the Bucks & MK branch area but you may not know that a committee is in place to help organise and manage these activities, which comprises a group of members who meet regularly to enable this.

We are currently looking for a member to join the committee and act as treasurer. This involves a very simple process of keeping our finances in order balancing income from and costs of putting on events, and liaising with the IoD centrally on these matters. There is no requirement for filing of accounts or anything more complex than simple bookkeeping but it would be ideal to have an experienced accountant to do this role and hence, we are contacting you.

To apply please contact our local Administrator Terri Stubbings
