At the top level of organisations, successful appointments can quite literally be the difference between success and failure. With increased scrutiny of leadership at the highest levels, appointing the right partner to mitigate organisational risk and fulfil C-suite and board requirements is a necessity.
At Green Park, we provide action-oriented Board and C-suite Directors, and NEDs to businesses looking to increase professionalism and accountability. Particularly where those businesses are facing a challenging period, or where increasing representation on the board is a business priority.
Working across the private, public and third sectors, we have built a reputation for robust, inclusive processes and an entrepreneurial approach that gives us the flexibility to adapt to changing business priorities. You can trust our strategic focus, attention to detail and commitment to building a deep understanding of your business challenges before we undertake your CEO and Board search mandates.
of Diverse Talent Mapping
We are known for finding diverse leadership talent where others say it doesn't exist. Operating in the intersection of talent, diversity & reputation, we are uniquely placed to understand and meet the increasing pressure for executive and board leadership teams to represent the customer and employee base that they serve.
Utilising our cross-sector expertise and collective years’ experience, we identify and attract leaders from a broad range of backgrounds to provide unique perspectives to otherwise limited candidate pools. Built up through recommendation, referral and proactive inclusive headhunting, our diverse leader networks consist of Chairs, CEOs, Directors, NED's, Committee Members and Trustees who are expert at embedding business changes and implementing best practice in corporate governance.

Green Park have the industry’s most robust data-set and market map of diverse talent in the UK. Continually analysing the workforce trends and identifying the talent gaps across the UK’s leading companies, we are at the cutting edge of what drives talent decisions at the top of major organisations.
We actively support the FTSE Women Leaders Review to increase female representation on Boards and the Parker Review on the ethnic diversity of Boards. Our Business Leaders Index and original data insights into ethnic and gender diversity trends at Board level have driven EDI conversations on a national scale and informed Government-backed reviews and targets, increasing transparency and accountability throughout the private, public and third sectors.
As our partner, you’ll gain the experience and understanding of a team of highly accomplished consultants who realise the importance of this crucial process and have extensive knowledge and networks in your market. In regulated sectors, we keep up to date with the latest regulartory requirements for non-executive roles, helping clients to mitigate risk in their senior executive appointments.
Our researchers have strong academic credentials to support their decision making, including published work on how to appoint Boards and commentaries on thought leadership. Our team members sit on Boards and are NEDs and trustees themselves, so they understand both sides of the candidate selection processes. This gives us invaluable insights into what organisations look for in these roles.
"Green Park's proposal had diversity at the heart, rather than just an add on - and this gave us confidence that in working with them we would be partnering with an organisation who held the same values as our own in this area."
Group People Director | Stage Coach
"Jo Sweetland of Green Park is just the best. She absolutely IS Green Park. Hard working. Super smart and understands a client’s needs. Jo has deep market relationships and superb networks. She sets the benchmark for Search in the recruitment industry. I would never hesitate to recommend Jo Sweetland to anyone. A delight to work with BUT more importantly brings the best results."

“Working with Green Park made this important and potentially challenging appointment process smooth and easy to navigate. The recruitment professionals that they assigned to the project communicated consistently and articulately with the variety of different stakeholders involved in the process; they were sensitive but did not steer away from being honest about the difficult realities involved in this recruitment campaign which resulted in expectations being expertly managed and trust being embedded. I would highly recommend Green Park for senior executive search campaigns, especially in the culture and creative industry.”

Chief Executive | Disasters Emergency Committee
Working with Green Park on an important strategic hire for our people agenda was seamless. Not only was the process handled with thought, agility and pace, but importantly also found us an incredibly high calibre of candidates which we struggled to pick from. We were impressed with their level of knowledge of this sector and our business, a very nice problem to have. Liz was a great partner to us with constant communication, flagging any risks along the way.
