We love what we do and we do it with passion

Placing purpose and quality before profit, Peridot Partners is a values-led executive recruitment agency transforming leadership and inspiring change with organisations that have a social purpose.

We’re a close-knit team of exceptional people and we’re proud of developing an ultra-flexible, empowering and fun culture.

We focus on long-term, deep-rooted relationships that bring added value.

We challenge the status quo about what makes good leadership, and this is reflected in our exceptional clients, candidates and close community of change-makers.

Since 2009, we have worked with organisations that want to grow and who appreciate and value good leadership, across the public, third and private sectors.

This means we spend our time recruiting people for leadership roles, executive and non-executive, and working with boards to become more effective, across education, fundraising and third sector recruitment.
