Nolan Partners conducts Executive Search on a retained basis for clients. We work with clients until the assignment is concluded, whatever it takes.

We take it upon ourselves to know who is successful in the sectors where we operate, identifying the people who deliver results time and again. As such, we ensure that we are well connected and always stay abreast of current events in our sectors.

We have also built a market leading in-house research capability and we are confident in our ability as a team to search across the world for talent. As well as identifying the best talent in our sectors, we pride ourselves on identifying high calibre individuals from other industries whom we believe have the right skill set and personal qualities to succeed in this space. In fact, more than 50% of our candidates now come from outside of our core sectors. However, it is one thing identifying successful individuals, but it requires specialist knowledge and experience to find the candidates with the capability to translate their previous success to the world of Sport, Performance or Entertainment.

“It was a pleasure to work with Nolan Partners. Their research on the brief was impressive and insightful. They listened and then produced an imaginative long list of excellent candidates. They were constantly helpful during the interviewing process and then helped effectively to land the chosen candidate. I was delighted by their reach and support.”

Donald Brydon CBE

“It was a global search and we had 3 appointable candidates. We were delighted with the outcome and our new Chief Executive is making a real difference. Nolan Partners demonstrated expertise, knowledge and commitment throughout, and I would have no hesitation recommending them to any international sports body.”

Nigel Wood

"Nolan Partners during the whole search process were partners in every sense of the word.  They clearly know the wider sport industry intimately, and brought a high level of professionalism and integrity to the process. I would not hesitate in recommending them to other sports organisations."

Chris Parsons

“Their ability to identify and attract people to a relatively unknown business provided us with shortlisted candidates from ‘A’ list strategy houses, rights holders, technology companies and broadcasters. We have since engaged Nolan Partners on another C-level mandate and look forward to maintaining our long term partnership.”

Chris Buckley

“Paul Nolan, we find, is a consummate professional and we are currently using his organisation on more assignments and are very pleased with progress-to - date. We are very much enjoying working with him.”
