"My greatest positive about Nurole is how an applicant can shape and personalise their answers to the 3-4 key questions asked in the application process. This is such an enhancement on the 'bland ' CV/covering letter application or traditional head-hunter process which often doesn't allow someone's personality, and character to come through and reply specifically to what the organisation is looking for."
