"Nurole is disrupting the executive search world, creating transparent executive search at a very senior level. The fact that UBM was using Nurole to advertise this role was a great attraction. I strongly believe in role modelling what you are evangelising."

"We liked the concept of Nurole and were keen to trial the service. Due to the time pressure of our search we went with a hybrid approach using Nurole and a search firm. We were pleased with Nurole’s reach, and the quantity and quality of responses. The candidate we finally hired was introduced to us via Nurole. We would be keen to use their services again."
