Lots of directors in small or medium-sized firms decide to take on loads of jobs all at the same time. You look after the general business operations, you’re handling the financial side of things, you’re in charge of procurement, IT - the list goes on!
If this sounds like you, then you can proudly claim the role of a MHD or a Many-Hatted Director.
It’s a stressful role that’s full of responsibilities, but many directors often find it is the only solution in their firm. If money is tight, then you don’t have the resources to hire people to take on all of these roles for you. So, it falls on your shoulders to handle everything to the best of your abilities.
