Every report into board diversity has pinpointed hiring as the problem.

Unless organisations change the way they hire, they will never properly address the lack of diversity in the boardroom. Nurole is designed to help you source, screen and hire the best and most diverse candidates. 

  • Our candidate-led approach encourages great people from all backgrounds to apply for roles that match their skills and experience. 
  • Our network and recommendation model creates a much wider talent pool than traditional headhunters.  
  • Our application process is structured to highlight core skills and competencies and remove bias.  
  • We partner with organisations that promote leaders from under-represented groups, like WomenExecs on Boards (gender), Olmec (ethnicity) and One Young World (next generation talent). 

Contact us to discuss how we can help you hire more diverse talent for your board.

Why Nurole works

“Nurole drives board diversity in different ways from traditional search, by leveraging the power of the internet to unearth and empower a global candidate pool."

Sir Philip Hampton, Chair of the Hampton-Alexander Review

“We sometimes find a false equivalence between merit and talent, and diversity. When we position these debates as an 'either/or', we are locking ourselves into a narrow space that doesn't reflect the talent that's out there.”

Dr Doyin Atewologun, Member of the Parker Review and Nurole's Inspiring Board Leader of the Year
