(Successful candidate)
"My experience with Nurole has been excellent and it has presented me with roles that I would not otherwise have been presented with. Having been part of the Parker Review that made recommendations on ways to enhance the ethnic diversity of UK boards, I have found the insight and access that Nurole has created to be a very important tool in breaking down longstanding barriers. Nurole was able to match my skills, experience and preferences with that of Comic Relief, and I am truly grateful for the assistance Nurole provided. I am also aware that they were very helpful in helping Prostate Cancer UK (where I am current trustee) find very qualified, and ultimately successful, trustee candidates."
