Executive Search

At Green Park, we leave no stone unturned – and that includes the cornerstone of organisational success. Securing the best talent may have once been an infrastructural obstacle but with Green Park, it’s more achievable than ever.

To remain at the top of our game, we must adapt to new trends and develop innovative ways to remain fresh and accessible. We pride ourselves on our executive search methodologies and bespoke hybrid solutions including social media, talent mapping and fresh business intelligence. And just when you think you’ve got us pinned, we go on to surpass your expectations once more with innovative new products such as optimised microsites for the visually impaired.

BESPOKE SOLUTIONS
There is no ‘one size fits all’ and our unique, empathetic approach reflects this. We treat our clients as individuals and work in partnership with them to meet the specific criteria of each role, candidate requirements and cultural aspects of the organisation.

Our curiosity is one of our greatest assets as it enables us to gain a true understanding of what’s best for your business, then use our expertise to bring change and benefits. The result? A thoroughly considered, practical solution that’s both functional and flexible right now and in the future.

RESEARCH DRIVEN APPROACH
At Green Park, we go deeper. We delve right down into every minute detail of your organisation to ensure optimum success for your infrastructure. Our evidence-based search and selection process is supported by a ‘best of breed’ research function with years of experience delivering sensitive, senior leadership roles.

Our in-house research team are carefully managed to deliver good quality business intelligence and represent our clients with pace, precision and process, undertaking target driven research campaigns and delivering high level searches across industries and functions.

During every search assignment, our research team works out a bespoke market mapping project plan reporting to the lead consultant regularly on progress. In short, we keep you updated and keep the lines of communication open to strengthen our connection and your trust.

FLEXIBILITY
‘Corporate’ has become somewhat of a controversial word in business. It’s become associated with dull, robotic meaning and not fully trusted for its authenticity or passion behind its machine-like cogs. That’s where Green Park differs. We have the time, infrastructure and inclination to listen carefully to our customers, provide thoughtful evidence based commercial feedback, and then base our executive resourcing solutions around a project plan that suits them best.

But don’t take our word for it. Our clients often comment that we’re not only quicker to respond and deliver solutions than our competitors but can also adapt our process and pricing solutions to fit their needs.

EXPERTISE
Fresh perspectives and new ideas are what we’re all about at Green Park. To that end, we decided on something pretty radical when we started up. But as you’d expect from us, there’s logical reasoning behind this courageous move.

We chose from the off not to be ‘all things to all people’: we know what we’re good at and would rather be experts in specific markets than average Joe in every market. Our teams have detailed knowledge and experience of their markets and can anticipate market trends, conditions, value propositions, and, most importantly, the market’s most talented executives.

Join us and you’ll be partnering with a senior consultant from start to finish benefitting from the added value their expertise can bring.
