Cabinet Office

Crown Representative

Over the past few years, the Cabinet Office has rolled out a new approach for how government engages with its key strategic suppliers in the form of the ‘Crown Representative’ network. They were looking for Crown Representatives who would support the Ministry of Defence with their biggest suppliers. Successful candidates needed to be British citizens and former senior industrialists who had proven leadership of complex supply chains, equipment manufacturing, or strategic maintenance services.

"I have now used Nurole as both an applicant and to source new NEDs for my own boards, and find their process to be extremely efficient. Their selection of high-quality vacancies are always clear on their requirements, and the Nurole application process is focused on exactly what is relevant. The process for this public sector recruitment was necessarily fairly extended, so I found the online updates and telephone conversations with Nurole to be very useful. I’m delighted to have been successful in being offered this appointment as a Crown Representative, and really looking forward to getting started."
