Designed for private equity

Why PE firms prefer Nurole


If your role is sensitive or you are in the middle of a deal, or just want to keep the search under wraps, you can post it anonymously. Roles can be posted without the firm being identified and this does not deter candidates, who understand the reasons why not all roles can be public.


Some roles are uber-critical or a great outcome is needed fast. You can choose to take a 'belt and braces' approach by using us in parallel with a traditional search. We support the pace needed by PE firms, with the successful candidate typically being identified within two weeks.


Our series of processes ensures that you can see all candidates or only review those absolutely relevant and appropriate for your role. Many of our private equity clients are too busy to review everyone and prefer to see our selected short-list of between 10 and 20 candidates.

Simple pricing
