When transitioning from an executive role to a board career, many executives simply submit their executive CV, thinking that it will suffice. But research has shown that, in order to obtain a position on a board, you need a dedicated Board CV.

What is the Difference Between an Executive CV and a Board CV?

A Board CV differs from an Executive CV as far as structure, content and tone is concerned. This can make the difference between getting that call to say you have been successfully appointed to the board or having to keep applying for more board roles.

For this reason you should invest in having a professionally written Board CV that reflects everything a Board or Appointment Committee will be looking for when going through resumés.

Although a Board CV can’t guarantee you a board appointment, a CV that effectively outlines what you can offer a board can give your application the edge over other less succinct ones. It is often the smallest thing on a CV that can see you shortlisted for a board interview. On the other hand, submitting a poor Board CV can do more damage to your application and your long-term reputation than not applying at all.

Although your executive successes do play a role in a NED application, it’s usually not the deciding factor when it comes to the final decision to appoint a candidate to a board. Therefore it’s crucial that your CV that accompanies your board application reflects your ability to fulfill the responsibilities that a board role will require from you.

An effective Board CV will demonstrate above all that you know what you will offer the board once you are appointed.

This has to be made clear in your Board Profile section. Since the Board Profile is so important, it has to state clearly (with evidence) that you are ready to fill the required position. This usually requires a few rewrites and often has to be rewritten to suit the board you are applying to.

With experience writing over 600 Board CV’s over the past six years, we have the ability to use your current Executive or C-Level CV and recraft it into an effective Board CV that will help get you that appointments.
