Overview

At Green Park, we care passionately about helping our customers change or grow their businesses. Our pioneering spirit and innovative approach gives us the dynamism and focus to consistently deliver new ideas and fresh solutions. While we’ve been trading for over six years, we take pride in behaving like a business that ‘starts up’ every day.

We have three focuses as a business. We concentrate on finding the most relevant talent through a robust Executive Search or Interim Management process, and providing tier one levels of guidance and helping thoughtful process through a selection of Independent Board Advisory services.

Our ultimate aim is for our clients to view us as partners to their businesses. To be considered a true partner requires more than just ad hoc success. Our clients value our relentless focus on gathering valuable business intelligence. They see how we share the expertise and innovation that drives their competitive advantage. They appreciate the breadth and depth of our networks. And they understand how we use our empathy to truly understand their culture and identify their needs. All this enables us to deliver resourcing solutions that help prepare their business for the future.

Specialising in our core areas of experience and expertise lie is why 350 clients have helped the team at Green Park achieve seven years of continuous growth and over 40 international award nominations.

Change Experts

We are experts at helping businesses resource effectively for change. Our network and intelligent connections create the conditions necessary to help them achieve sustainable change and growth.

Our customers value our passion, our in-depth industry knowledge and our ability to fully understand the story behind each role’s unique balance of technical, leadership, commercial and cultural challenges.

Our experience of delivering innovative and effective organisational change has given us the expertise to build a robust and proven methodology suitable for today’s business environment. We have refined this model over time to ensure accurate, equitable, transparent processes leading to the desired outcomes.

Our work is consultative and strategic, but we are a group of hands on business people who are motivated by making a difference. We are also internationally acknowledged thought leaders in helping organisations create sustainable conditions for driving business value through increasing minority representation and diversity of thought within senior teams.

Preferred Suppliers

We are preferred suppliers to more than 70 listed or privately owned international organisations, including BP, New Look, the BBC, The Co-operative Group, Lloyds Banking Group and have delivered work in over 50 countries.

We are also privileged to support a large number of government bodies, local authorities, charities and public healthcare organisations. We are rated number one in the UK on the HMRC Framework across government in HR, Communications and Diversity categories, and have helped a large number of public sector organisations bring in the right commercial leadership talent or help build leadership teams that better represent the communities they serve.

The Green Park Team

Our team at Green Park is obssessed with delivering exceptional customer service. But don’t just take our word for it; there’s nothing we take greater pride in than the feedback we receive from the people we work with.

That’s why every year we ask our top 300 customers one simple question: ‘Would you recommend us to your network?’ And since Green Park started trading, more than 97% of our customers have confirmed that they would happily recommend our services to their professional networks. Our ‘can do’ attitude, creative and thoughtful approach, intelligent thinking and commitment to diversity and inclusion are often singled out for individual praise.
