Technology is driving transformation across all market sectors and revolutionising the way we operate at every level. This presents huge growth opportunities for technology organisations that have the right leadership, technical skills and people infrastructure to leverage them. However, rapid technological advancement, from artificial intelligence (AI) to robotic process automation (RPA) to cloud services, continues to escalate skills shortages. In such a highly competitive market, many technology companies are struggling to execute their people strategy at the rate needed to sustain their growth trajectory.
This isn’t a problem for Green Park’s clients. Like technology organisations, we operate an agile, forward-looking business model and, at the cutting edge of what drives talent decisions in major organisations, we are quick to adapt and respond to market changes.
Operating in the unique intersection of recruitment, diversity and brand, we not only deliver high-caliber executive leadership talent, but transform cultures, values and teams to make our clients relevant to wider customer groups and increase their overall global competitiveness in the candidate market.
of Diverse Talent Mapping
The role of the technology executive is evolving. The growing emphasis across the private & commercial sector on environmental and social corporate governance has added an additional layer of complexity to the leadership remit also requiring commercial and strategic acumen and customer-focus. Competition for the most talented technology leaders who can deliver technical know-how along with a vision for an inclusive and sustainable future, are in huge demand.
At Green Park, we have an extensive track record of helping technology organisations build forward-thinking and high-performing leadership teams. Our flexible, fast-moving executive search and interim management teams identify and attract talented technology executives who are fully assessed, pre-qualified and have a history of delivering change and lasting impact.
Getting to know your organisations objectives, we apply our robust methodologies and use bespoke assessment tools to help mitigate our clients risk and ensure ‘right first time’ placements. This includes assessing leadership style, values, and culture fit.
Female Search Placements
Ethnic Minority Search Placements
The global technology skills shortage is well-recognised, yet our research shows representation of female and BAME executives remains disappointing in the UK tech sector. Despite industry initiatives to improve gender balance in the technology sector, the proportion of female senior leaders in FTSE 100 technology companies fell last year.
Green Park’s executive search team is committed to providing clients with access to the broadest talent pools in the technology sector, which means they have a much greater potential to fill positions that are notoriously difficult to recruit for. Our diverse candidate networks have been cultivated over 15 years of proactive talent mapping and relationship building, giving us the industry’s most robust data-set. This helps us to identify talent trends and locate skills across-sectors where the existing candidate pool may be limited.
We help our clients to overcome negative perceptions of leadership in this sector, especially on gender. We advocate on behalf of clients, educating the market about their initiatives and ambitions in this area, while our dedicated Diversity, Inclusion, Culture & Ethics consultancy helps organisations to build knowledge, strengthen internal capabilities and develop inclusive workplace cultures. We know that candidates can quickly see-through tokenistic efforts on diversity, so we help clients build solid reputations for inclusion that enhances the power of their brands.
"I have known Jamie for about 10 years now and worked with him very closely to recruit talent at many levels. Jamie has a high level of integrity, is extremely knowledgeable about the marketplace and trends, and ensures that the outcome is a win-win for all concerned. I can recommend Jamie without hesitation as a good partner in the recruitment process."

"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
"I have partnered with Jamie and the Green Park team for several years now and I find myself keep coming back to them when we have strategically important roles for the organisation. They operate a structured, but flexible process that delivers results through close collaboration and refinement with us as a client. They are focused on the human and gain a deep understanding of our needs and what candidates are looking for. I particularly value the time taken by the team to understand us as a business, and their ability to find, engage and advocate for us with a diverse range of talent well matched for our opportunities."
