Our awarding recruitment team believe in the work done by awarding organisations, EPAOs, examination boards, professional institutes, and membership bodies across the UK.

In the face of changing policies and politics, awarding and assessment organisations inspire thousands of people to see a different future for themselves, gaining the skills and qualifications they need to reach their aspirations and achieve social mobility through education.

You’re fighting for fairer access to high-quality education, skills and employment opportunities on a global scale.

We believe your organisation should represent the communities you serve. Your colleagues, from those in leadership roles to operational specialists, need to support your ambitions and help you overcome the challenges you face.

That’s why we exist — to support ambitious and strategic awarding and assessment bodies to recruit the specialists and leaders needed to inspire change and development both internally and externally.

As Platinum Suppliers of the Federation of Awarding Bodies and proud Patrons of the Association of Employment and Learning Providers, we believe in giving back to the sector through supporting events and hosting webinars for awarding professionals.

“I really rate Peridot Partners as ‘the’ recruitment agency for anyone hiring for key positions in the skills and awarding sector.

The Head of Skills and Awarding, Kristina Preston, at Peridot really understands the sector, and what is needed in terms of knowledge, skills and background to fill those roles. Always helpful, and going above and beyond to match candidates to roles that suit.”
