We know it isn’t easy to create a dynamic board; with a brilliant and ever changing mix of skills, experiences and perspectives. We are on a mission to help you dance towards dynamism, (rather than ticking boxes to achieve diversity)!
We use data to optimise the advertising of your non-exec vacancy so you or your search firm can focus your energy on the dance: the challenging job of filtering applications and interviewing candidates to find those that will help you create a future-fit, dynamic board.
We (Sarah & Scarlett) started Dynamic Boards because we wanted to create free and fair access to non-executive director vacancies for ALL. There are several vacancy listing sites that run on an exclusive access basis, or charge people to view roles. We want to ensure that anyone can see board vacancies and have the opportunity to apply. Since we launched in May 2020 we have showcased over 500 roles, of which 97 are in the housing sector.
We are eager to help Housing Associations take action to encourage under-represented groups to apply for your board roles. Back in July 2020 we spoke with the G15 and shared our top tips for doing just that. You can read the blog version here.
Four ways we’d love to help:
- Advertise your vacancy on DynamicBoards.co.uk for FREE
Just send us over the details to email@example.com and we’ll get it live on the site straight away. We showcase vacancies for paid, non-executive board roles.
- Send a nudge email to candidates who meet your brief
We have a UK-wide database of candidates who are interested in hearing about Non-Executive Director vacancies. We use targeted email advertising to encourage people with the experience or background you’re looking for to apply. For example, if your board needs more digital skills, is based in the South East and has poor representation of people from black, asian, and minority ethnic backgrounds, then we can send an email to people who meet those criteria to particularly encourage them to apply. Get in touch for a quote.
- Record a video interview with a member of your board
We love bringing boards to life! It can be hard to convey what you are like in a text-only advert. You can see an example of this from the wonderful John Delahunty, CEO of Innis Free here. Informal video interviews are going down a treat now that 2020 has helped us get used to being on video!
- Have a chat
Get in touch if you would like to have a chat about the current mix on your board and what your thoughts are for the future of your board. It’s a topic we love to talk about so we won’t mind giving you some of our time!
We’re happy to help. Drop us a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
