"Having used Nurole both as a candidate and as a client, I found that the system gives its users access to an excellent platform which allows them to quickly review opportunities that interest them and that best fit their experience. This helps streamline the hiring process. Furthermore the very wide reach of Nurole both in the UK and overseas can deliver candidates that would not otherwise be identified. These aspects of Nurole differentiate it from the usual search process and validate Nurole as a valuable resource for board level hiring."

"The Nurole platform provided us with a really diverse range of high calibre candidates for both of the roles we posted. Nurole enabled us to reach beyond our network by attracting applicants who traditionally might not have considered becoming a NED of a VCT. We are delighted by the outcome and were very impressed by how straightforward, efficient, and cost effective the Nurole process was."
