Professional network for board level recruitment, NonExecutiveDirectors.com, has launched in the United States, following year of record success and growth.
Online PR News – 02-September-2016 – Manchester, United Kingdom – The UK-based, professional network for board level recruitment, NonExecutiveDirectors.com, has launched in the United States, following a year of record success and major growth.
NonExecutiveDirectors.com forms part of the global group, In Touch Networks, the world’s largest non-executive director network, bringing together various groups of CEOs, CFOs, and non-executive directors looking to augment their careers through placement on company boards.
Companies can join the network and recruit candidates completely free of charge, therefore eliminating expensive recruitment fees. As well as having access to hundreds of off-market roles, candidates receive a dedicated account team to help them build a strong, Google indexed profile, which is then promoted to public and private sector companies.
Since its launch back in 2013, the company has amassed a network of more than 17,500 members looking for board member roles, and that number is forecasted to exceed 36,000 by the end of the year.
The UK team has successfully placed board members with high profile public and private sector organisations, including the UK Government and National Health Service.
The website generates over 350 roles per month and there were more than 18,000 direct approaches for its members last year.
Commenting on the year ahead, group CEO, Matthew Roberts, said: “The employment and business landscape is changing, 40% of Americans will be self-employed by 2020. People want greater autonomy and a better work life balance, while companies want consultation from people with diverse skill sets and experience. Our business model facilitates this workplace evolution and means we’re ideally placed to help organisations attract talented board members who can transform their businesses and add genuine expertise.
“We have disrupted the UK sector by putting the power into the hands of businesses, building a powerful network of talent and eradicating expensive headhunter fees. We are now looking forward to mirroring this in America by providing the perfect platform for board members to showcase their credentials.”
The website provides genuine added-value to members with an active events calendar and training opportunities. NonExecutiveDirectors.com is part of In Touch Networks. Other brands in the network include: TheConsultantHub.com, WomenDirectors.com, FinanceDirectorNetwork.com.
