Why do we work with Social Justice Organisations?

Our purpose is to work with clients to find leaders who create positive social change. We are closely aligned to organisations that exist to make society function better.

Whether it’s organisations working to address systemic racism, inequality, food insecurity, the protection of human rights, or those organisations working in the criminal justice or homelessness space, Peridot is proud to partner with a range of charities, think tanks, foundations and social enterprises who address the effects of injustice and its symptoms, and find solutions to make positive change.

The organisations that work with us are looking for modern leaders, people who can innovate, are bold, curious and transformative; not satisfied to accept the status quo, and able to challenge and shift in-grained approaches or attitudes towards social reform.

We have also bought in leaders with lived experience to trustee, executive, and chief executive roles.

Our clients work across the following areas:

Diversity is at the heart of everything we do and is crucial to our success, reputation, and the organisations and people we work with. We have a position of influence as a recruitment company to make our positive contribution to change the systems that perpetuate discrimination, and with that comes a responsibility to do better.

We work tirelessly to ensure we lead inclusive campaigns and projects that can encourage all members of society to apply and know that they will be treated with decency and respect.

Over the past months, we’ve worked with Peridot on our Chief Executive UK recruitment and Chief Executive for Emmaus, Coventry and Warwickshire. On both occasions, they were easy to work with, flexible and successful in assisting us to explore the market and secure the right person for each role. The individuals that we worked with from Peridot were enormously knowledgeable about the market and did a thoughtful and thorough job of gathering information about the role, organisation and federation before they began the search. They managed the whole process in an organised and efficient way. We were kept updated at every stage and were impressed with the calibre and pool of candidates presenting themselves. We’ve been very happy with Peridot and would not hesitate to call on them again.
