Board Search is research-driven and resource intensive, guaranteeing the highest calibre and most diverse candidates for any board role.
Evolving technology, funding landscapes and economic, social and political change means that organisations need to be more agile, diverse and skilled, with broader thinking to adapt successfully to the fast-evolving external climate.
Providing assurance, risk management and the robust delivery of your governance responsibilities has never been more important in providing foundations for advancing your organisation.
Good boards, with the right human dynamics, are a rich source of skills, experience, ideas, and networks that can not only safeguard but inspire and support an organisation to thrive in our fast-paced, dynamic world.View our open board roles here
We know our stuff. Over the last 12 years, we’ve recruited 1000s of people to boards and, as board members ourselves, we understand the nuances and challenges that come with a commitment to better governance with a focus on board development.
We often get to know our clients, their board culture and their longer-term ambitions. We are passionate about your cause and develop a narrative to attract the people you really need. This often means working with boards over many years as a partner for trustee succession and board development.

“We have used Peridot for a number of trustee recruitments and have found them to be professional, supportive and effective. The quality of the shortlist they produced on this occasion was outstanding, leading us to make more appointments than originally intended. I look forward to working with them again when we next have board vacancies to fill.”
Company Secretary of the National Autistic Society
“The support provided by Peridot Partners has been faultless from start to finish. We aimed to recruit four new trustees, each of whom had a clear brief regarding skills, experience, and contribution to the Board’s effectiveness, during a challenging post-pandemic environment. We have appointed five high calibre candidates, a recognition of a thorough search, shortlisting, quality interim briefings and enabled through a superb understanding of the Charity! A job well done!”
Chair of Young Gamers and Gamblers Education Trust
