Part-time Executive Directors

Part-Time Executive Directors

When you choose not to hire a part time executive Director for your UK business, you are likely missing out on some of the very best talent available.

There are now more highly qualified part-time workers than ever before in the United Kingdom. The Office of National Statistics shows that there are now over 650,000 people in the higher-rate tax bracket who work part-time. Many of these people are highly qualified strategy, operations or commercial Directors, which we can supply.  We do not provide part-time Directors in Finance, Marketing, IT, HR, Sales or Legal but have partners in these areas which we can introduce you to.

If you can’t necessarily afford these individuals full-time, hiring an extremely qualified person on a part-time (or fractional) basis can help both make the most of your budget and their skills.

What a part-time (or fractional) Director can offer you:

Experience – If you’re considering bringing on a part-time Director, your candidate likely was a Director in a similar industry, meaning that they’ll have knowledge of your field and its specific challenges.

Flexibility – Hiring can take a number of forms, starting as low as one day a week, making it easy to suit your budget.

Strategic insights – Your part time executive Director should be able to survey your business, assess your current performance, and determine what changes need to be made to best position you for success.

Contacts – Your part time Director will have an extensive network of contacts and should be able to make introductions as your business needs them.

Collaboration – A part time Director will provide leadership when needed, helping you to address organisational issues and contribute when you face challenges.

Ethics – A great part time Director won’t overstretch themselves, nor will they work with your competitors without an agreement in place that explicitly permits them to do so.

Additional value – You will be able to rely on your part time Director to provide advice, feedback, and guidance.

Coaching and leadership – As your team needs mentoring, your part time Director will be able to help them grow, thrive, and flourish alongside your business.
