Community cohesion, inclusion and sustainability cannot be achieved without bold leadership that is unafraid to do things differently. The organisations we speak with, from local authorities to community interest, housing and regeneration providers, recognise that diverse, complimentary teams deliver the best outcomes. However, for most of these organisations, the pace of change is too slow to meet the demands of their changing community, marketplace, and economy.
Delivering real impact in this complex landscape demands expertise in both the client’s and candidate’s worlds and of the rich lived experience of the broader community. Most of all, it requires bold leadership and an understanding of how to drive organisational change.
No one can do this like Green Park. Our unique capabilities span executive search, interim management, organisational consulting and Diversity, Inclusion, Culture & Ethics. Intersecting the fields of talent, diversity and brand reputation, we are uniquely positioned to help place, community & sustainability organisations rise to these exciting, but equally challenging, times.

We understand the complex dynamics and depth of expertise needed to lead community-oriented and place-shaping organisations. Our expert team of executive search, interim management and EDI specialists, work closely with organisations in the role of trusted advisor to help them think differently about talent. This includes interpreting role requirements in innovative ways and defining inclusive briefs that open up the talent pool to exceptional people who could have otherwise been overlooked.
We take pride in our commitment to make authentic rather than tokenistic approaches to candidates. Although renowned for our ability to deliver diverse longlists and shortlists, we are not a diversity head-hunter. Our success lies in our commitment to finding the very best talent, which can only be achieved through equity and inclusion. This is why our clients trust us and this is why our candidates trust us. And in a market where diverse senior leaders are fatigued by inauthentic head-hunter approaches, our reputation and results matter.
Our track record appointing executive and non-executive directors across Civil Society & Government speaks for itself. As does our 70% rate of repeat business and 80% referral rate.
We use our extensive contacts across professional and local government networks to keep up to date on how and why role requirements are evolving. Speaking at events and sponsoring programmes, we share our experience in inclusivity and diversity to empower organisations to make progress in these areas, while staying on top of leadership trends across government, charities and social enterprises.
We sponsor the Clore Leadership Programme and the MJ Local Government Awards and are pleased to be members of ACEVO and partners with Altair in driving Diversity & Inclusion across the housing sector.
"Harry and Green Park have provided us with superb support in recruiting management-team level executive posts, helping us secure diverse, high quality short-lists of candidates and managing the process extremely smoothly."
CEO | C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group
I was first introduced to Green Park through my appointment as a Trustee of Citizens Advice. Green Park led the recruitment and I really enjoyed my experience of working with the team. They are professional and knowledgeable and take time to build relationships with candidates. I felt fully supported throughout the process.
