Peridot Partners approach to Executive Search

Peridot Partners deliver extensive research to find outstanding people and engages them with a compelling case as to why they should be motivated to join the organisations we are recruiting for. Evidence proves time and again that the most appropriate candidates are engaged through a direct approach, as many are not actively looking for a new role. Our approach places a heavy emphasis on executive search, based on bespoke research, and can be complemented by advertising to ensure wide candidate market coverage. Candidates will also be reached through our extensive existing personal and social networks, which extend across the public, private and not for profit sectors at national, regional and local level.

We are also involved in conducting and supporting the interview and assessment processes, providing candidate feedback and managing offer negotiations.

What Our Clients Say

Peridot Partners have been an excellent partner to work with in our search for new Governors to join the Coventry University board. Their search resulted in a high calibre of individuals from diverse backgrounds being shortlisted and interviewed for selection. As a result, we have successfully filled all of our existing vacancies and more. In addition, I have received a number of positive comments from candidates about their positive experiences working with Grant and his team.
