Welcome to Noble People. I’m Murray Noble.

For close to three decades, I’ve built great finance teams for CFO’s and CEO’s in Melbourne. Together we can make your finance team better than your competition.

I’ve helped over a thousand people further their careers.

I’ve got the industry bruises and scars to guard you from the challenging parts of recruitment. Or if you like, I can customise a program to ensure you are better equipped the next time you recruit.

I’m a straight shooter and always aim to be present. I believe relationships should be built on trust, respect, honest and fair feedback. You want timely and frank discussions? Good. We both know it improves outcomes and results.

Let’s find you those people who fit your culture and grow your business.

MACG has worked with Murray for over 7 years and I’ve personally known Murray professionally for over 9 years. In that time, we have fostered a very constructive business partnership built on mutual trust, respect and excellence. As a result, MACG has enjoyed tremendous success within the field of finance personnel. Murray’s ability to build strategic partnerships with candidates and clients alike, sets him aside from all other recruiters in this health-related finance space.Cameron McPhersonChief Executive Officer, Medical & Aged Care Holdings P/L

I have known and engaged Murray as a recruiter for over 15 years in a range of industries and a broad range of finance-related roles, from very senior to entry level. To develop the brief, Murray has typically challenged my thinking about the role and about the desired candidate, to ensure he fully understands the requirements, and he has then always delivered exactly what I need. Over the years I have also been able to have candid conversations with Murray about role clarification, job fit (for candidates and for incumbents), and also to seek advice about personal opportunities. I have no hesitation in recommending Murray for his recruiting expertise.Colin HollandExecutive General Manager Finance and Corporate Services (CFO), BlueCross Community and Residential Services

I have utilised Murray’s expertise for nearly 20 years both as a candidate and employer, having first worked together when he recruited me for a Senior Finance role at an ASX200 Company. Since then, Murray has been generous in sharing his knowledge and insights, while delivering a first-class recruitment service. With many success stories along the way, Murray remains top of my list when we have a significant recruitment challenge as I know he will deliver a great outcome with a minimum of fuss, which is no mean feat given the fast-paced environments I tend to find myself involved in. I highly recommend Murray both as an employer or candidate.Gavan FlowerChief Financial Officer, Sprint Capital Partners

For over a decade, I’ve had a recruiter in my corner that I’m proud to call a mate. Starting from being a successful candidate for CFO a role in a tech business with Murray, progressing to his recruitment of roles for my team and with me for my successor at Catapult (ASX : CAT), and building a total finance team at Money3 (ASX : MNY), a partnership that has made recruiting simpler and more often than not, enjoyable. The strong relationships Murray builds with his candidates and clients means in addition to the successful recruitment we’ve done together, I’ve had a friend, mentor and truly valued counsel in professional and personal circumstances.Brett CoventryChief Financial Officer, Chrysos Corporation

I enjoy working with Murray, as his passion is to place good people in the right role to ensure both client and candidate satisfaction. Murray has recruited me into my last two roles over a 7 year period and has always been an excellent sounding board for professional advice for me. I have also worked with Murray from the client side and I value his honest, frank feedback as it gives me insight to the candidates and current market conditions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend working with Murray, his proactive approach, professional manner and ease to deal with is refreshing for a candidate and a hiring manager.Paul O’MahonyGM Commercial, BlueCross Community & Residential Services

Too often when you speak to a recruiter everything seems great and enthusiastic and then…. silence. I have been fortunate enough to work with Murray who is very different from that crowd. Murray has been instrumental in my career with two different roles, and I have found him to be a focused and motivated recruiter. Murray listened to what I was after, and then went out of his way to put forward roles that perfectly fit my requirements. Furthermore Murray kept me up to date on movements within those roles. Searching for a role during a pandemic was quite a challenging experience, fortunately Murray kept me motivated and engaged during these uncertain times. With Murray you feel like you have a true partner with you when you are searching for a role. Jason LintzerisFP&A Manager

I have had the pleasure of working with Murray in capacity as both candidate and client. Having first connected with Murray in early 2001, his professionalism and disciplined approach to recruitment hasn’t wavered since. Murray is one of the few recruiters that invests time to truly understand the requirements of both client and candidate. Investing this time enables Murray to provide exceptional service over an extended period of time. Scott HugueninCFO
