We will email you to let you know about Future Director opportunities that match your skills, experience, or any other specific requirements of the host board.
You will either apply directly to the host board or in some cases the host boards may engage a search agency who will contact you directly.
The IoD uses the QJumpers platform to host the Future Directors database and emails will be sent via this platform.
The Institute of Directors and Host Boards are the main groups who have access to your information.
We do give selected executive search firms and state sector appointing agencies access to the Future Directors database. If the host board engages the services of an agency, they may be the ones to contact you about an placement opportunity.
Usually the host board, the IoD or a recruitment agency will contact you about an opportunity.
From time to time, we post Future Director vacancies on our Director Vacancies webpage. IoD members are able to access these opportunities.

No, the requirements are different for each host board but we recommend that you have senior management experience and have had some exposure or experience working with a board.
If you meet the specific requirements of a Host Board, you will be alerted to the Future Director opportunity by email as they arise. If you do not hear from us it is because the current host boards have a different set of criteria on which they are seeking at that point in time.
