Independent Search Partnership

CEO - Nisbets

Independent Search Partnership is a leading independent search firm founded by former Korn Ferry Partner and co-founder of The Miles Partnership Guy Beresford. Guy was running a search for the Chief Executive of Nisbets. With over 1,600 employees and more than £385m turnover worldwide (FY17), Nisbets is considered Europe’s largest supplier of catering equipment.

Guy was not prepared to leave any stone unturned in finding his client the best candidate. In parallel to running a traditional search process, Independent Search Partnership cast the net wider by using Nurole to identify a wide range of high calibre candidates but none more so than Klaus Goeldenbot, the former president of RS Components.

"When Nurole alerted me to the Nisbetts CEO role I KNEW this was the role for me. The whole process took less than three weeks. When something is right you just know it. The Nurole process is very simple and quick - there’s no bureaucracy. Submitting my application required careful consideration but I liked that it gave me the opportunity to present myself in the best possible light at a time of my choosing."

"The big difference between Nurole and other sites I have tried for candidate sourcing is the quality and relevance of the candidates. The way the platform is structured helps address key concerns up front which makes the process incredibly efficient. It’s also fantastically quick – you get connected with great candidates within days. A huge asset for anyone hiring at board level."
