"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."
Head of Governance, TPI Fund Managers Ltd
"I liked the Nurole approach and the whole set-up - a much more efficient, modern way of sourcing NEDs which is much needed in this era."
