“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

“As a truly international business we are delighted with our hire – a German national who was working for an Italian company, living in the UK and now happily relocated to Gibraltar. Their ability to excite potential candidates was first class and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”

Henry Birch

I was delighted by their reach and support.”

"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
