Our disability recruitment work

In the UK, disability charities play a vital role in the lives of countless individuals. They face several challenges, such as unpredictable funding, changing laws, and increasing demands for services. The sector’s success hinges on having the right leaders at the helm.

Effective leaders bring clarity and purpose, ensuring charities stay on course, make smart financial decisions, adapt to change, and reflect the diversity of those they serve. They nurture talent, fostering a community of passionate and skilled professionals who uphold the charity’s mission.

Empowering these charities requires a collective effort to overcome challenges and drive progress. When disability charities are led by strong, visionary individuals, they can navigate uncertainty, thrive in changing environments, and offer inclusive, high-quality services.

We partner with disability charities to find these leaders. We’re here to connect experienced, dedicated individuals to the charities that need them. Together, we can face the challenges, seize opportunities, and create a brighter future for the disability charity sector and the people it serves.

Our disability recruitment brochure

“Peridot listened carefully to Trustees and probed deeply to ensure they fully understood the needs of the organisation, the business strategy and current and future challenges. This identification of the key characteristics required of a new CEO resulted in a good shortlist of candidates. The process from longlisting to shortlisting to interviewing and final appointment was extremely thorough with close attention to every detail throughout. Our specific requirements for the inclusion of a wide range of stakeholders in the process were fully met. The guidance and feedback received throughout was exceptional and I would have no hesitation in using the services of Peridot in the future.”

Who we've worked with

“Peridot really took the time to understand our organisation and the needs for the recruitment. They spent time with staff and trustees, as well as visiting Share to meet our students and get a’feel’ for the place. They were thorough, responsive, flexible and nothing was too much, understanding that as volunteer trustees, many of us needed to fit recruitment of our new CEO into our working lives. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”

Chair, Share Community
