Find your next non-executive board-level role or hire

NED hires and roles

In association with Nurole, we’re helping IoD members to find their next non-executive board-level role or hire. Nurole is changing the way boards hire great people. Their tech-driven platform works better for organisations and candidates, with an 85% placement rate.

For organisations

With the ongoing struggle to adapt to rapidly changing markets, there is a greater need for effective non-executive and advisory boards. Relying on the ‘little black books’ of traditional search firms often falls short of the specific experience and skill executive teams need to support them. Nurole’s board-level hiring platform has been designed so that boards can select truly motivated candidates from a highly-relevant and diverse shortlist. Their 85% placement rate reflects this.


Reach 10x more relevant candidates for your board in half the time of a traditional search firm.


Because their board platform is open and candidate-led: 45% of placements are women, 30% first-timers, 20% ethnic minority.


Nurole are a market-leading specialist board hirer and are on track for 1,000 boards to place a candidate this year.
