Hospices in the UK provide vital care, holistic services and support to more than 300,000 people with life-threatening or life-limiting illnesses and their families every year. You need brilliant leaders, trustees and staff to make a difference.
Working for a hospice is a privilege. From the CEO to the volunteers, every person makes a difference to providing expert, compassionate end of life care. Our hospice recruitment services help you find these people.
The modern hospice movement is responding to the growing demands of care support with innovative services, new technologies and wrap around support for everyone who needs them, at the point at which they’re needed.
We know that hospices need the best people and the best leaders. People who are mission-led, caring and also ambitious. Who can lead teams which will ultimately help more people to live as fully as possible for as long as possible.
More importantly we understand why hospices are so special. What it takes to work in a very unique environment and why it’s an honour to try and give people the best end of life care – whoever and wherever you are.
“Working with Peridot has been a success story for the North London Hospice over the past 3 years. In that time, we have recruited an impressive CEO and more recently a group of talented and vibrant Trustees. Working with the Peridot Team has been a pleasure. Their professionalism, experience and interpersonal skills are impressive.”

It feels good to work with us. Whether you’re a client or a candidate, we treat you like an individual. Someone who has values, goals and ambitions. And we talk to you about them.
We make the effort to understand what you need, so that we match you with people or hospices that really fit who you are.
If you’re a hospice, our briefing process means that we talk to your key internal stakeholders to get a confidential insight into what you’re looking for. And we’ll support you to get those messages right. If we think you’re missing an opportunity, we’ll discuss it with you honestly. Fundamentally, we take the time to listen you.
If you’re a candidate, we understand how daunting a recruitment process can be. So we make sure you have the information you need to feel confident. Whether that’s in helping to decide if a role is a good fit, through to interview preparation and feedback.
And if you don’t get the job, we’ll give you constructive feedback and help you look for a different role. We don’t just say goodbye. We are proud of our long-term relationships.
Peridot were one of the most supportive, friendliest and informative recruiters I have worked with. The team made sure they were available out of hours to provide guidance and feedback before or after interviews. They talked through the role in great detail and were able to provide background on the charity. Overall, I would highly recommend Peridot!
