Overview

Up to two Non-executive Directors

London

£32,000 for up to 30 days per year   London/Oxford

Nominet plays a vital role in the UK internet. Recognised as a part of the UK’s critical infrastructure, Nominet is the leading registry of UK domains and a trusted online home for millions of British businesses. On the global stage, we are a leading player in global internet governance and have demonstrated a consistent commitment to developing an internet that benefits all. As a membership organisation we have over 2,800 members, many of whom are also .uk registrars – the sales channel for .uk domains.

Since Nominet was established in 1996, our business has seen consistent growth and we have built what is now an internationally respected registry, with a reputation for technical excellence and great customer service.  With a strong management team, headed by an experienced and ambitious chief executive, the organisation has deep technical skills which extend into areas such as DNS network management for enterprises and governments, cyber security and the Internet of Things.

Nominet is now starting to diversify into new business areas by leveraging those skills and the Board is working closely with the executive to develop and execute an ambitious, robust expansion strategy. To help us exploit these opportunities we are looking for highly experienced non-executive directors to join the Board to fill two independent seats. We are seeking directors with deep experience in the field of finance, ideally in the context of M&A and with deep experience in the field of technology (we have a particular interest in candidates who offer expertise in cybersecurity). We are also very interested in experience of influencing the government digital agenda (Whitehall and Westminster). Already recognised as an independent and strategic thinker, you will bring credibility and stature and will add value through your knowledge and networks.

Nominet is an exciting business, staffed by enthusiastic, skilled people and led by a very high-calibre executive. As new opportunities open up the organisation needs to move confidently to grow and to extend its reach and you will contribute actively to Nominet’s development and will be excited by the opportunities it now has before it. At this pivotal moment in our development, these appointments offer an exceptional opportunity to make a real difference in the internet space.
