About this document
This agreement is a contract for services between a non-executive director and a company or other organisation.
The director is not paid for his or her work, although he or she may receive expenses.
Ideal for charities and not-for-profits, it should be used by any company or other organisation that requires a contract with an independent non-exec director who will gift advice and support on a voluntary basis.
This agreement is particularly strong on the protection of confidentiality and company secrets. It is flexible and can be used whether the term of the contract is fixed or running. Use of plain English makes editing easy and allows it to be understood by all parties.
This agreement provides a balance between protection for the director and for the company. If there is a difference in interests, we have favoured the company. Some of these provisions are required to comply with the law. The explanatory notes, which come with these documents, will guide you as to the importance of specific issues.
The law relating to this agreement
This contract makes absolutely clear that the relationship between the director and the organisation is one of unpaid consultancy (help) rather than employment.
Despite there being no payment, the agreement provides for “consideration” so as to make the obligations of the director legally binding on him or her.
