Roy Ripper

For more than 25 years Roy Ripper’s passion has been helping recruiters take their careers and businesses to another level by inspiring personal & business growth, success and achievement. 


Roy’s core techniques for success as a recruiter and his strategies for creating business growth come from his own professional experience and his work with some of the leading names in the industry.

Recognised as one of the most charismatic and motivating mentors and coaches, Roy began his career as a consultant specializing in selling in selling client-paid recruitment advertising. Three years later he went on to set up a specialist executive search company with James Caan (CEO of UK private equity company Hamilton Bradshaw and ‘Dragon’ from the BBC’s popular Dragon’s Den series) working on a 100% retained basis. He then undertook a recruitment training apprenticeship with legendary Tony Byrne and later worked at Learning Curve. Roy was then approached to set up the executive search division (100% retained basis) of Corporate Services Group, a £350million turnover plc. After successfully growing the business from 0 to 25 revenue producing consultants and a £2million profit within 2 years, he made the move to full time training and consultancy.

Roy Ripper has since helped more than 47,500 recruiters from more than 35 countries transform their careers and businesses through his books, podcasts, DVDs, online training products, live events and personal coaching. He’s been fortunate to work with some of the largest and most successful businesses in the worldwide recruitment industry, but holds a special affinity with small business owners. Roy is regularly invited to contribute to trade journals and speak around the world.
