EIS relief and the connection by employment rule

If an individual wanted to invest in an EIS qualifying company would they be restricted from doing so if they were contracted to provide services to (not employed by) that company?

The HMRC guidance mentions that you are "connected by employment...if you are a partner, director...or an employee of the company". What does the "partner" criteria mean? If it covers suppliers / contractors then it seems a bit odd to be covered by the "connected by employment" umbrella.
