FAQs for Members
How does Nurole work?
- When you create your Nurole account we'll ask you to set your role preferences. These help us show you the most relevant roles on the platform (you can review and update these at any time).
- We'll email you with the most relevant roles based on your preferences. You can also log in and browse the Roles Page at any time.
- When you see a role that interests you, you apply through the platform. We'll outline the key skills the hiring organisation is looking for and ask you to evidence your experience in these areas. You will also be asked to submit a Cover Letter outlining your reasons for applying and (usually) a CV.
- We will keep you up-to-date throughout the process so you don’t have to keep checking your account. If you don’t make the cut, we’ll tell you a bit about the candidates who did progress for context.
How do you choose which roles to show me?
When you sign up, we ask you to complete your role preferences. This lets us know what sort of roles you are interested in and helps us filter the most relevant. We will only send you roles in the notification emails that match your criteria. You can also log in and browse the Roles Page at any time.

Questions about Applications
How do I know whether to apply for a role?
That’s really up to you, but we have compiled a few key things to consider in this guide.
What does the watchlist do?
If you add a role to your watchlist we will alert you when the closing date is approaching in case you would like to apply. You can find your watchlist by clicking your name in the top bar and choosing it from the menu.
Do you have any tips for applicants?
How long does an application take?
On average an application takes 30 minutes.
Why can’t I upload my CV?
We accept CVs as Microsoft Word files, PDFs, Rich Text Format and Plain Text. If you are having trouble let us know and we can convert your CV into a PDF for you.
Can I edit an application after I’ve submitted it?
No – once an application is submitted it’s not possible to make any changes. This includes uploading a new CV. The best thing to do is withdraw your previous application and apply again. You can copy and paste the relevant info from your previous application (which you will find in your applications dashboard).
Once you have applied again, email firstname.lastname@example.org to withdraw the first application.
When does a role close?
At midnight in whichever time zone you’re in.
Can I use the same info from a previous application?
You can, especially if you are trying to demonstrate a skill (i.e. financial acumen) that you have written up previously.
We do not recommend you use the same cover letter though as each application should be tailored to the specific role.
What does it mean if a role spec says the board is looking to increase its diversity?
It doesn’t mean that only candidates from under-represented groups will be considered, but it does mean that all things being equal, candidates who can bring diverse perspectives will have a better chance of being interviewed for a role.
When can I expect to hear about a role?
After you submit your application you will receive a confirmation email which will tell you what date the hiring organisation plans to make its decisions by.
