Non-Executive Director - Health and Safety (HSE) engineered products business
Edinburgh – Two Days per Month
£750-£1000 per day
Headquartered in Edinburgh but with clients spread across the UK, ESS’ client is a fast growing and highly ambitious Health and Safety (HSE) engineered products business. Their core technology helps analyse a range of potential medical conditions for workers in heavy industries and construction.
Their wearable smart device records and stores a range of technical, health and safety and product data. This anonymous data is almost a bi-product of what the product is actually used for. The board has identified a potential secondary revenue stream to analyse and sell this data into non-competing sectors and businesses. To help with this, they are now looking to recruit a new Non Executive Director.
Working as part of an integrated board of Directors, the Non Executive Director will work closely with the current CEO and act as the “eyes and ears” for the primary investment partner. Whilst advising and supporting the strategic growth and potential exit of this business, your other key role will be to help the business to gather, analyse, present and ultimately sell this data on.
You are a proven and experienced Non Executive Director (NXD) or Chair, or you are just about to start your portfolio career. We are looking for a candidate who’s experience lies in big data management and has looked at ways to analyse, prepare and create commercial opportunities by promoting or selling anonymous data. This candidate could come from a range of sectors but most likely he/she will have worked in analytics, software, finance, banking, insurance or possibly retail, where data collection and manipulation are key.
Our client is looking for a candidate to commit up to two days per month. Ideally you are based in Scotland, but if not then you are willing and able to travel to Edinburgh. A highly competitive daily rate is on offer for the right candidate.
