These are the general Terms and Conditions for use of the IoD’s Directory of Non-Executive Directors, to be known as the IoD NED Directory, hereinafter called (‘the Directory’) and its website, NED.iod.com (‘the website’). Your use of the website will be subject to these Terms and Conditions.

The Institute of Directors (‘the IoD’) may change these Terms and Conditions from time to time. By accessing the website you are accepting that you are bound by the current Terms and Conditions at the time of access. You are therefore responsible for checking these each time you revisit this site.

Who can use the IoD NED Directory

The Directory is exclusive to the current members of the IoD (‘IoD members’) as part of their IoD membership benefits. It is not available to members of the affiliate bodies. By providing the Directory and its website, the IoD offers a confidential service (‘the service’) to those IoD members, who wish to promote themselves as potential non-executive directors (‘Prospective NEDs’) and those who wish to appoint non-executive directors to their boards (‘NED Recruiters’).

The IoD reserves the right to change the access criteria for the Directory at any time.

To use the Directory and the service it provides, IoD members will need to register on the website. IoD members can be registered on the Directory both as Prospective NEDs and/or NED Recruiters.

The IoD reserves the right to carry out reasonable eligibility checks on its members registered on the Directory.

Information for Prospective NEDs

To register on the Directory, Prospective NEDs will need to complete and activate their profiles, which can then be matched to NED Recruiters’ requirements. Prospective NEDs will be able to amend or deactivate their profiles at any time.

Prospective NEDs’ profiles and NED Recruiters’ requirements are visible only to IoD staff and contractors. Where NEDs’ profiles have been shortlisted, the IoD will ask the NEDs’ permission to release their profiles to the appropriate NED Recruiter. Provided permission is given, the NED Recruiter will be sent the prospective NED’s profile and contact details. If not, their name will be removed from the shortlist before it is forwarded to the NED Recruiter.

Prospective NEDs, who agree to be put forward for a role, should ensure that they have the appropriate documentation to support the information on their profiles (including but not limited to proof of qualifications referred to on their profiles), as well as the proof of their citizenship and/or work permits.

Prospective NEDs should be aware that being registered on the Directory and/or having their profile short-listed does not in any way guarantee that they will be contacted by a NED Recruiter and/or placed in an NED role.

The IoD is not liable for any act or omission of a NED Recruiter or for accuracy of the NED Recruiter profile and their NED requirements specified in an online search form. Prospective NEDs must satisfy themselves that the role registered on the Directory by a NED Recruiter is suitable for their skills and experience. Likewise, NED Recruiters are responsible for checking and validating information provided by Prospective NEDs.

Information for NED Recruiters

NED Recruiters, looking to appoint non-executive directors to their boards, will also need to complete their company profiles and requirements and fill in an online search form specifying their exact search criteria for the role they are seeking to fill. NED Recruiters will need to submit their requirements to the IoD, who will carry out a search on their behalf. NED Recruiters will be charged for each separate search undertaken on their behalf.

A non-refundable administration charge of £100 plus VAT (at the prevailing rate) is made by the IoD for each search notwithstanding the outcome of the search. Payment, by credit card, will be taken over the telephone. A maximum of 10 short-listed profiles will be provided per search. NED Recruiters must be aware that if their search criteria do not bring any matches, the search charge will not be refunded. The IoD reserves the right to change the size and the frequency of the administration charge at any time.

The IoD reserves the right to decline to carry out searches submitted by head-hunters and / or executive search agencies, as it will contradict the provision of the Directory as a direct service between Prospective NEDs and NED Recruiters wishing to appoint non-executive directors to their boards. However, in exceptional circumstances we may carry out a search for head-hunters and / or executive search agencies, in which case a different administrative charge will apply, starting from £500 +VAT.

NED Recruiters who wish to appoint any of the Prospective NEDs submitted to them by the IoD as a result of a search of the Directory must satisfy themselves as to the prospective NED’s credentials and their suitability for the post.

The IoD is not liable for the accuracy of the profile of a prospective NED registered on the website nor, following any appointment of a prospective NED, for any act or omission of such prospective NED.

Registration and login details

IoD members registered on the Directory must keep their registration and login details, including passwords, for the use on this website confidential and must not disclose or share these details with anyone. They will be responsible for activities that occur using these details. If they have reason to believe that their details have become known to someone else, they must notify the IoD immediately.

In the event of any failure or error in the operation of these details by IoD members themselves, they must exit the website immediately, and notify the IoD of such failure or error.

The IoD may withdraw the Directory as a membership benefit or change its Terms and Conditions at any time.

Communication with the Gurus

In the first instance, communication is restricted to the use of the respective iod.guru@iod.net address with future responses and follow ups utilising the same secure email address.

This email address will be cycled through a series of Gurus over the course of the year and the current recipient will be advertised on the website. Handover dates will be advertised and after which point it may not be possible to communicate with a previous Guru.

Should the Guru wish it he/she may decide to give a separate, personal email for future communications. This should not be sought and if received should be treated with discretion and respect. Personal email addresses must not be distributed or published in any way.

Advice Sought and Given

The Gurus are willing to answer any questions relating to the general world of business or their specific and described skills and experience. Their advice is given without fear or favour and from an entirely voluntary viewpoint. An acting Guru may be an IoD member or, on occasion, an IoD staff member, but views given do not represent the views of the Institute nor should be taken as such. Any future actions taken that may correspond to or reflect the advice of a Guru is the sole responsibility of the student member and no liability can be attached to the Guru or the IoD.

IoD Moderation

An IoD moderator will oversee all correspondence and, where necessary, intervene to provide factual advice or indicate that personal opinion should not be given for such a query.

In some instances you may be approached by the IoD moderator requesting use of your question and answer as an online example. It is within your rights to refuse this request without prejudice.

Code of Behaviour

Inflammatory or defamatory language, libel, profanity, rudeness or general behaviour that can be perceived as inappropriate for an IoD member will result in the revocation of your IoD Student Membership.

The IoD reserves the right to change the gifts at any time. All details are correct at the time of publishing. If you have any questions concerning the gifts available please call +44 (0)20 7766 8866
