(Successful candidate)
"It [Nurole] has been absolutely terrific. I have always had an interest in investment - I’ve always had a geeky interest in asset management but never had that on my CV so a classic headhunter would never have realised I was interested in a role like Nutmeg. The traditional model for non-executives misses a load of the talent out there - the moment you post it you get a completely different talent pool, bringing into the open things that have been behind closed doors. I am great a believer in transparency and meritocracy."
