"The Board was keen to meet high quality candidates from both the US and the UK within a tight timeframe for our recent Audit Chair appointment. NuRole surfaced a very strong and long list within a month, from both the US East Coast and the UK, with diverse candidates we otherwise never would have found. The application itself requires candidates to do their homework, think through why they are right for the role, and the written answers provide very useful information to supplement CVs and interviews. The platform made it extremely efficient for the Nominations Committee to review the submissions and reach decisions about who to short list. The Nurole team were helpful and supportive throughout, and the Board is delighted to have appointed Peter Roth as our new Audit Chair."
