How does the UK version of the director's service agreement differ from the US version?

I am familiar with the US Executive Employment Agreement standard document, and have modelled the form agreement we use with US-based executives on it.  I now need to prepare a similar agreement for a UK-based executive director, and know that you have a UK Directors Service Agreement standard document I could use. However, I'd much prefer to use a UK form agreement that matches our US form as much as possible, and have it differ only where necessary to comport with UK law. Thus, I need to compare the US and UK standard documents to identify provisions that will need to differ between the two because UK law is significantly different. Any assistance/suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
