A Fractional Director is a Director who works part-time (or at a fraction of full-time) for your business. When you choose to hire a Fractional Director for your business, you are likely capitalising on some of the very best talent available.
Fractional Directors generally have extensive experience working at Director-level in a full-time capacity but have switched to working part-time or at a fraction of full-time. They now work for businesses who don’t need or can’t afford a full-time Director but who need the same level of expertise and knowledge that a full-time Director has.
This arrangement can provide a win-win solution for both parties and is getting increasingly common especially with scale-up businesses and SMEs
