How do we find you the best candidates?

Just like any search partner, we support you through the search process from start to finish. The magic of Nurole lies in unearthing great people through our unique methodology and we do so through three distinct channels.

The Nurole network

Our starting point: a community of tens of thousands of pre-vetted board members from over a hundred countries. We cast the net much wider before intelligently matching your role with the right candidates.


We crowdsource recommendations to reach beyond the members of our network. The big difference is technology: we can source at scale instead of being constrained by time or manpower.

Direct approaches

We know that research and industry expertise have their place. Our team of search veterans makes proactive approaches to potential candidates within and outside the Nurole network.

The Nurole process

Our methodology of finding candidates makes us unique, but we combine it with human expertise and client support at every stage to deliver a reassuringly straightforward process.
