Why conduct a directorship check?

Conducting directorship checks is an essential part of the hiring process for leadership roles, ensuring legal compliance, mitigating risk, and identifying potential conflicts of interest. By assessing whether a candidate has been disqualified from directorial duties in the past, companies can avoid potential legal complications and protect their reputation. Additionally, these checks reveal if a candidate holds a directorship that could conflict with their responsibilities in the new role.
