Changing technology, funding landscapes and economic & political uncertainty mean that organisations need to be more agile, diverse, skilled and broader thinking to adapt successfully to the fast-evolving external climate.
All whilst providing assurance, risk management and the robust delivery of your governance responsibilities.
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 this fast-changing world.
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.

“Without a doubt working with Peridot Partners has been a significant enabler for YGAM. The dynamics and productivity of our board has taken several leaps forward and it is pleasing to be working with such a talented group of people who have big ambitions for our charity.
Having now had the opportunity to work with the new board over what is now almost a year, it has been the best thing for YGAM. Our governance, scrutiny and entrepreneurial outlook has significantly increased and more importantly we are looking forward with confidence and an assured resolve to deliver our charitable objects with conviction and maximise our social impact.”
Lee Willows, Chief Executive, Young Gamers & Gamblers Education Trust
“It was absolutely excellent working with both Grant and Jennifer from Peridot Partners. I was impressed by the research they carried out on JGI before the search began and the thoroughness of their desire to understand our organisation.
Thereafter, the level of service was extremely high and I would highlight the excellent communication by both phone and email. At the end of the process the outcomes exceeded our initial expectations and desires which leaves JGI UK in a strong position moving forward. I would thorough recommend Peridot Partners to anyone looking at professional recruitment services.”
