About Ridgeway Partners: London & Glasgow

Our unique focus and deep relationships give Ridgeway Partners access to the best candidates. We ensure that our retained clients receive a premium service. We have built long-standing relationships with our clients because of our exclusivity, our responsiveness, our discretion and our track record of success. We listen intently, and think outside the box for a solution. Our creativity and tenacity are key differentiators.

The culture of Ridgeway Partners is collegiate. We commit to clients on assignments from start to finish. The partner and team you see at the pitch are the ones who will do the work. We take accountability.

We have the access, experience, and correct insight to find you the best people for your business.

Each search is bespoke. We take the time to understand you first. We go through the exacting process needed to fill the role. We aim to  delight you with the quality and range of our candidates. We work quickly and we reference thoroughly.

In our executive work, we have few ‘off-limits’ restrictions, which means we can maximise our approach.. In our board work, we control our workflow to ensure clients are not competing.

We have a strong track record on diversity. We are one of a handful of firms accredited under the Hampton-Alexander Enhanced Code of Conduct, and one of only three firms to have both the FTSE 350 and Beyond 350 kitemarks.

Every assignment matters to us and after every one, we ask you to rate our work.


Since 2014, Ridgeway Partners has continuously achieved the highest level of accreditation from the UK government, for its achievements and good practice in helping to increase gender diversity on boards.
