"As a public sector Chief Executive I’ve long been thinking of gaining non executive experience. I joined Nurole last year and have been greatly impressed with the range of roles that have been sent to me. The application process is simple and I became a Council Member of Queen Mary University of London in November 2017. If you’re looking for non executive experience I can recommend Nurole as a great place to start."
