Most people have heard the term Non-Executive Director without actually really knowing what they are, much less what they can potentially do for both a growing or indeed an established Business. Those who do know they can add knowledge, diversity and experience to a Company’s Board, all of which cannot fail to be of value to a Business regardless of size or turnover. Non-Executive Directors have often held a strategic and political role in larger Companies, but now, smaller Businesses are recognising that they can be a valuable asset, so much so in fact, that start-up Companies and SMEs are increasingly searching for and appointing the ‘perfect person’ to be a Non-Executive Director for their Organisation.
Blayze Unguem’s Non-Executive Director service aims to match Businesses with like-minded individuals to give you the edge…
The initial meeting with a Candidate is critical to both parties, not only are you forming your first impressions of them, they are of you and the company.
Interviewing is a two-way street, you need to both check if the Candidate is the right person for the job in a multitude of ways; experience, personality, qualifications etc, but also allow the Candidate to find out if the company and role is right for them, it requires a skillset in its own right.

Your CV is the most convenient way to market yourself, it is a ‘snapshot’ of you as an individual. Résumé’s are the chance for you to ‘sell’ your experience, skills, achievements and qualifications to potential employers, with the aim of it securing yourself an interview.
Whilst you might possess all of the necessary requirements for a vacancy, your CV has failed if the potential employer does not recognise that you possess these attributes.

So the CV got you in the door, but that’s just the start of it. The face to face interview is where you ‘clinch the deal’. Interviewing well can sometimes be more important than actual relevant career experience. Often, the person who interviews best is offered the role over the person with the more relevant career experience.
Remember, once you’re in the door, your CV has done its job, now it’s over to you. Now is the time to make yourself stand out head and shoulders above the competition. This is your big chance to really promote yourself, so it pays to prepare.

A badly formatted CV containing poor formatting and spelling can put you on the back foot against other applicants. Equally so, a hiring manager should be able to find the information they want quickly and easily, so don’t make your CV crowded or too long, as a guide try and limit it to two or perhaps three pages. You could always have a longer more detailed version on hand if needed.
Your CV should be tailored to the role you are applying for, or the career path you are wishing to develop, so you may want to save several versions.
To open the template click below, this will open a Microsoft Word Document that you can then customise with your information.
So your dream employer loved your CV, you passed the interview stages with flying colours and you received the offer of a permanent position, BUT, there’s a small catch… Like many other Companies your new employer will more than likely have the standard procedure of putting a probationary period in place before you officially have the job.
The aim is for the new employer to confirm that you are definitely the right Candidate for the job and you can succeed in the role. Though it can be seen as a test, it is in everyone’s best interest, including the employer’s, for you to pass, and due to this you will find that there is lots of help for you along the way.
