Inclusive and transformative health and social care recruitment for forward-thinking organisations.

At Peridot Partners, our health and social care recruitment experts are proud to partner with a wide-ranging variety of health and social care organisations. Health and social care play an integral role in our communities, with an impact that touches everyone at multiple points in their lives. However, the sector faces unprecedented challenges with the cost of living crisis and strikes, while navigating our post-pandemic world.

It’s more important than ever to have agile and emotionally intelligent leaders with the relevant experience and the right values to create an effective and nurturing organisation for your impact and service users. No matter the size of your organisation, the perspectives and experiences of your communities must be centred in the approach of your executive team and board, with potential and real disparities addressed.

An effective leadership team empowers and inspires your organisation to face the challenges of the current funding climate, increased demand for services, and difficulty in recruiting and retaining talented staff. They must drive innovative solutions to pave the way for your organisation to deliver better outcomes for your communities. Our extensive networks and processes source and attract these people to your cause.

We provide a bespoke and personal approach to identifying, engaging and appointing health and social care leaders for a range of clients. We understand the importance of placing experts and professionals within this sector to enable a transformative future for all forms of health and social care.

We find leaders who can support complex change management, lead multi-disciplinary teams of staff and volunteers, drive financial sustainability and improve diversity and inclusion.

We’re plain-talking and transparent, and the organisations that we work with are too. They understand the value of having an open and trusted relationship.

Hospice leadership recruitment

“Peridot surpassed all our hopes and expectations in managing our recruitment process for new trustees. Their engagement and involvement throughout the entire process was very well managed with a confident and professional approach.Every effort was made to ensure our brief was thoroughly understood and consequently the number and calibre of candidates was outstanding. Peridot’s screening process was robust and they provided exceptional support in managing the process and delivering an experience that was equally positive for both candidates and our recruitment panel. It was an absolute pleasure working with the team from Peridot and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to others.”
