Break the shackles of traditional headhunting

Too often, boards miss out on the full breadth of boardroom talent. You are bound by your headhunter's outdated approach, limited by their closed networks and unconscious bias. Failing to run an open and transparent process, you never know what outstanding board talent you have missed.

Our new approach

Boards benefit from our three-pronged approach to hiring. First, our sector experts will make traditional headhunting approaches on your behalf, using market connections built over c.800 searches a year. Second, we will undertake an open and transparent search via the Nurole network of c.65,000 board leaders. Third, members of our network will recommend others for the role. Ultimately, you get candidates with the time and passion to add value through a fair and auditable process.
