I’d been considering NED roles for quite a while and although I knew they would take my law career to the next level, I wasn’t quite sure where to start. Fortunately, City CV was recommended to me and once I was in their professional hands, they helped me to identify and prepare for the roles I really wanted.

As a result I’m now paid to sit on two boards and have plans to add to my NED portfolio. I couldn’t be happier.

Our Approach

Stage 1: NED Career Strategy

Joining a board does not necessarily follow normal hiring procedures. This initial stage puts you in control of your career strategy. Your board coach will work with you to identify your value, strengths and aspirations. Together, we define the skillset you bring to a board and refine your brand to correctly position you and your ‘value proposition’ in the board / NED marketplace.

We will identify and start to fill any gaps in your knowledge/board fit and work with you to determine appropriate companies and opportunities that match your expertise. Importantly, for new NEDs, this period provides the space for you to adjust your mindset from that of a ‘doer’ to that of an ‘advisor’, a shift that is commonly underestimated.

Together, we will create an insightful strategy that helps you define and achieve your career goals; formulating a way forward and a framework for support as you move onwards and upwards.

Stage 2: NED Search Strategy

We ensure your job search is at its most productive with targeted and effective strategies to steer you through the complex board search arena. This could include helping you identify the most appropriate channels for your job search, optimise your activity to move up the LinkedIn rankings, and engage with appropriate headhunters to build relationships that will enrich your search and match you with the board that can best utilise your talents.

Stage 3: NED Interview Strategy

Our board and NED interview coaching provides the preparation, techniques and practice you need to manage the board interview process, including how to demonstrate specific board-level advisory skills and how to establish the interpersonal dynamic that will convince an organisation you are right for their board.
