Download a list of 30 interview questions that draw on our board appointment experience and thought leadership in governance.

Each question comes with guidance about good answers and how to draw out the best from the candidate.

These questions are only available to IoD members. 

How it works

There are two sets of questions:

  • recommended questions about governance core competencies like experience, strategic capability, and understanding the role
  • discretionary questions to ask when they are relevant.

You select the most relevant questions and put them in the context of your organisation and your interview format.
