Bill Yuksel
Managing Consultant

m. 07801 897063

I am inspired by delivering equitable leadership recruitment campaigns.

I love drinking espresso, challenging my physical and mental strength at CrossFit and creating environments where people can create real systemic change.

At Peridot, I’ve delivered hundreds of senior leadership and board appointments in the  Students’ Union, youth, education, community and wider not for profit sectors. This includes 35+ CEO appointments across England, Wales and Scotland.

I also bring lived experience of leading transformation projects as a Trustee. At both charities where I have been a Trustee, I’ve secured better financial positions, led governance reform and recruited new CEOs and Trustees. I have recently joined the Transformation Board at the University of Suffolk Students’ Union.

I’m exceptionally proud of my track record of recruiting people from underrepresented communities into positions of leadership, through delivering inclusive, empowering and robust recruitments.

What our clients and candidates say:



“Following a poor experience with another recruitment company, Bill and stepped in to support our recruitment campaign at the last minute. He was receptive to our thinking and able to develop our ideas for the role, culminating in a professional recruitment pack. Throughout the recruitment campaign, Bill provided timely updates on progress and supported us thoroughly during the interview stages. At both longlist and shortlist stages, there were high-quality and a good calibre of candidates presented. Bill provided us with additional capacity throughout the process which enabled us to concentrate on securing the right candidate.”

- CEO at Birmingham Guild of Students.

“Bill has been really helpful and supportive during the process of me achieving this new role. He also provided honest and useful feedback for me to reflect upon so I could improve my approach. Communication was really good and prompt with the right information provided, he was able to answer questions I had which assisted me further. All in all, this has been a very positive experience.”

- CEO at Community Resource.

“I had a really great candidate experience with Peridot. I felt supported and valued from my first exploratory conversation, right through to the aftercare provided after securing my role. Too many recruiters make you feel like their role stops once they have found you and put you forward for a role, but Peridot clearly care about their candidates and want them to perform at their best. They take time to make sure you fully understand the context and expectations of the role and they offer support and meaningful feedback all along the process. I am sure that this boost to my confidence and performance at interview helped me secure my exciting new role.”

- New CEO at Southbank Students’ Union.
