TLC to grow “Future Director”

3 August 2020

The Lines Company (TLC) is looking for a talented candidate to mentor through the Institute of Directors (IoD) Future Directors programme.

TLC has been accepted as a Host Board to grow a wider pool of skilled professionals to move into corporate governance roles by hosting them for 12-18 months.

TLC Board Chair Mark Darrow said this was a rare opportunity for the right local candidate to receive mentoring, advice and practical insight into the boardroom.

“We’re looking for a hardworking, local candidate wanting to grow their skill set and experience around the board table and be supported to do so.”

“In return they’ll learn about our industry, as well as experience, contribute and add value to our business,” he said.

IoD’s Future Directors programme is focused on developing the next generation of directors to support New Zealand’s economic growth.  The benefits to business include tapping into the skill sets, insights, and perspectives of people who might do or think differently.  It also helps to close the experience gap faced by people seeking to move into corporate governance roles.

TLC is seeking to appoint a Future Director who has a strong interest in governance and the local community.  A voluntary role, the successful candidate can expect to receive high-calibre mentoring and significant boardroom experience – along with a financial contribution to governance courses in order to assist with their career development.   Participants attend Board meetings where they are able to contribute to discussions in an observer capacity.  Future Directors do not have voting rights and are not involved in any decision making.

“This is an outstanding opportunity for someone wanting to gain first-hand experience operating at board level.  Someone that can bring fresh perspectives, and who wants to add value not only to our business, but also to the community.

“It’s important, as a Board, we play our part in growing the size and depth of the pool of directors, especially locally.” Darrow said.

TLC’s appointment will follow the IoD Future Directors framework, with a 12-18-month term.  Expressions of interest in TLC’s Future Director placement close on 20 August 2020, for more information click here.
