About this unpaid non-executive director's service agreement
This is a service agreement that sets out the contract for services between a non-executive director and a company or other organisation. The director is not paid for his or her services, although may receive expenses. Ideal for charities, it should be used by any company or other organisation that requires a contract with an independent non-executive director who will gift advice and support on a voluntary basis.
This non-executive director's service contract 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 document 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.
