Executive director for UK Ltd

Posted 4 weeks ago

Hello you,

I am looking for an UK based executive director for my small limited company registered in the United Kingdom.

It sounds strange that I would seek the help of a freelancer for that so let me explain:

Currently I am in the process of building up a company in the UK to manage an international team of freelancers through an agency here on Upwork. The way this works is that the Ltd is the owner of the agency, ergo receives all profits from it. I believe that the niche my freelancing activities are currently in offers a scalable business opportunity.

Here you come into play: As I am based in the European Union, running a company as an executive in the UK is difficult due to Brexit. This is mainly for tax reasons (Basically our local courts do not recognize an Ltd if it’s run from the EU). Therefore it is essential to have an UK based executive director. Your tasks will include:

- signing paperwork
- corresponding with accountants/lawyers/authorities
- holding shareholder meetings
- having the final say over client acquisition
- in general making the important business decision

Your role will be of administrative nature. Freelancers will acquire either clients or other freelancers and submit the ideas to you. You will have the final say about An advisory board will recommend actions that you take - there is however not obligation for you to do so.

You will be formally in charge of the company, most of the non-administrative work will care of itself though.

Besides the hourly rate you can charge us we will also get you a stock package so you can have a share of the profits.  

I would be happy to discuss this further with you during a Zoom call. Please submit a rough hourly rate and I will get back to you and we will discuss this :)
