(Successful candidate)
"Initially the Nurole experience was bruising - its platform attracts the best and brightest talent, competition for Nurole roles is fierce and I needed to learn how to demonstrate I had the required skills and accept that often I didn’t. But I also felt the Nurole experience was transparent and “fair”. When I was rejected I could see why I was rejected. It was a level playing field which didn’t require a network built over many years. For someone new to the non-executive world this has allowed me to find roles with excellent organisations that I would not have been able to access in a world pre-Nurole. The concise nature of each application requires detailed thought and time, and being chosen as a result of Nurole’s very competitive process makes me feel confident that the board wanted me and there is a good cultural fit."
