Recruiting specialist fundraisers and creating long term impact. We're proud to recruit incredible people who are changing their charities through income generation.

Talented and passionate about growing income for impact. We work with brilliant organisations to recruit people who will make a difference.

Recruit the best fundraisers

Friendly, focused and proud to work with third sector fundraisers

Finding talented fundraisers is a skill, particularly given the best fundraisers are in demand. Our team, headed up by Simon Callaghan, Director of Fundraising Appointments are experts in partnering with clients to recruit exceptional people.

Like the organisations we partner with, we’re values led

We know how important it is to attract fundraisers with a proven track record in generating income, alongside having a passion for the cause.

Moreover, we’re experienced at partnering in the long term, and building a knowledge of our client’s culture, which minimises risk of a hire not succeeding.  We understand the incredible impact a high performing fundraising team can have on a charity – providing financial sustainability but also doing so much more than just raising money, including creating innovation in service delivery.

In July 2018, the International Rescue Committee UK won Best Large Fundraising Charity at the Institute of Fundraising Awards. We are incredibly proud to have worked with their Senior European Fundraising Director, Emma Bolton, to recruit two-thirds of her successful team.

Our expertise in recruiting fundraisers from Director of Fundraising to mid-level specialist ‘head of’ and manager positions leads to long-term relationships as we build up in-depth knowledge of the culture of your fundraising team.

“I secured an exciting position thanks to the professionalism and guidance provided by Peridot Partners. They are one of those rare recruiters in the market place that genuinely take the time to get to know their candidates by understanding your skills, your experience, your qualities and what you are looking for in your next role. Whether you’re a candidate or client, I couldn’t recommend Peridot Partners highly enough.”
