The role of the Chief Operating Officer is becoming increasingly strategic as organisations recognise the importance of well-connected and coordinated business functions, systems and processes. Integrating corporate functions including HR, Procurement, Compliance, IT, Data, Communications and Finance, the modern COO must align business and department objectives to drive productivity, growth and change.
From driving employee engagement through inclusive workplace cultures, to protecting brand reputation through robust processes and regulatory compliance, the Operations remit is continually evolving to meet the demands of changing macro and micro-operating environments. Increasingly, we find our executive searches include governance, stewardship and sustainability skills.
Whichever way organisations define their Operations function, Green Park are on hand to deliver the executive talent to lead this business-critical role. Taking time to understand your organisational objectives, our expert consultants will utilise our extensive global talent networks across the private, public and third sectors to find Operations leaders with proven track records to deliver against your businesses’ strategic goals.

At Green Park we invest considerable time and effort in understanding different client cultures, so we are better positioned to de-code their long-term recruitment requirements and people strategy. We believe in ‘culture add’, rather than ‘culture fit’, and our talent acquisition process challenges clients to think about their perceptions of the type of people they want to recruit in order to produce a more diverse talent pool with fresh ways of thinking. Our inclusive outlook delivers higher levels of skill, by tapping into diverse candidate pools that others may have overlooked.
In a market with a broad talent reach, where the average time in role can be only a few years, we recognise the importance of finding talent with a strong track record in driving change. We also take a ‘360 degree’ view of a client’s Operations activities to recommend candidates suitable for other executive roles, enabling them to build their brand strength through multiple strong leaders.
Our team has many years’ experience working across the public, private and third sectors. We combine our functional Operations expertise with expertise specific to your sector through our ‘best team in the room’ approach. This gives us greater depth of knowledge of the technical aspects of operational functions and how they differ between businesses.
Our global experience, combined with fifteen years of proactively mapping and building relationships with Operational leadership and pipeline talent, gives us access to an extensive network of world-class leaders. We act as trusted advisors to our clients, building long term partnerships on the strength of our track record placing senior executives into Operations roles and ‘right first time’ reputation.
