The Green Park Story

The Green Park Story

Green Park is one of Europe’s fastest growing suppliers of interim management, executive search and board advisory solutions across the Private and Public sectors. Since our inception in 2006, we have had seven years continuous growth, and been nominated for or won over 40 national and industry awards spanning a range of specialisms, industries and disciplines. In 2010, we were named the UK’s 19th fastest growing private company in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100, and London’s fastest growing private company, according to CityAm.

We’ve also been recognised as a top 10 interim management supplier by the Institute of Interim Management, and Recruiter Magazine has named us one of the industry’s recruitment businesses in 2011 and 2012. In addition, we won the Rising Star Award at the Recruitment International Awards in 2011.

We are very proud of the Green Park story. As one team, we’ve been lucky enough to watch the company grow from modest beginnings to become one of the UK’s most engaged and passionate executive resourcing business. Being part of that journey hasn’t been without its challenges, but together we’ve built a company with a reputation for customer service, quality and dedication to delivering the results our customers need. But this is only the first chapter of the Green Park Story; the ambitious team is working harder than ever to ensure we continue making Green Park an international success story in the short, medium and long terms in the eyes of our customers.
