Speakers for Schools
Founded in 2011 by ITV’s Political Editor, Robert Peston, Speakers for Schools aims to reduce educational inequality by giving all young people access to the same prestigious networks available to the top fee-paying schools in the UK. Through Nurole they appointed their new CEO in September, and as a result, sought two additional Trustees - one qualified in law and one with good knowledge of the state school education system - to join an impressive Board helping to diversify it further and increase S4S's impact.

Chair, Speakers for Schools
"We were seeking two Trustees of the highest calibre to join our Board, but we also sought individuals who shared our vision and values. Through Nurole we were presented with a longlist that was not only high quality and met our brief, but also diverse in a range of different ways."
Former Governor, University of the Arts
"I am always looking to work with organisations where their values align with my own. Through Nurole my values were able to align with the values of the organisation, and this is why it is such a success."
