When you are an employee of a company, the responsibilities relating to your role are usually made clear before you begin your employment, most likely by means of a contract of employment which will have been created by, or with the help of, a commercial lawyer at www.rowebristol.com.au. However, one role within a company where the responsibilities are often not as clear and specific is that of a company director.
If you think about it, with many job roles you could likely list several of the duties that they would perform, and for many, there is a clear career path with a clearly identified training and development. A couple of examples would be a company accountant and a sales manager.
Even if you do not anyone who has these jobs, nor done them yourself you could hazard an educated guess that the accountant has passed several accountancy exams and is highly skilled and experienced with regards to finance, business tax systems, and obviously how to produce accurate financial accounts.
For the sales manager, it is almost certain they were at one point a highly successful salesperson and went through plenty of coaching and training and then showed that they were capable of teaching and managing others to do likewise.
The point we are making is if you were to ask 100 people what the career path to becoming, and what were the responsibilities for lots of job roles, most of them could do so to with reasonable accuracy. However, if you were to ask the same 100 people those questions with regards to becoming a company director, we are sure the answers would vary enormously.
