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.

“The international search brought candidates from the US, Switzerland, Singapore and UK. I’ve been delighted with their partnership approach, results and tenacity in helping us secure an outstanding individual for the post.”

“I appointed Nolan Partners to assist on a challenging mandate to hire a Director of CRM to lead our teams across Gibraltar and Israel. Not only did we hire someone with the perfect skill set, they really understood the company and department culture to attract the right person, which was critical. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

“We believe they are the number one firm in sports recruitment and would recommend them to any sports organisation to handle their senior appointments.”

Paul Barber

“Nolan Partners’ knowledge of the sports sector is unrivalled, their insight into the complexities of a sports governing body unique. We are consistently delighted with both the levels of service and quality of the candidates they present to us.”

Alex Horne

“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.”
