A Partner within Green Park’s Civil Society and Government Practice, Dawar Hashmi heads the Local Government and Health executive search team, delivering senior recruitment campaigns for local authorities, health organisations, housing association and government agencies across the UK.

With over 23 years’ experience in public sector recruitment, Dawar has been instrumental in diversifying the demographic of leadership within local government and has set up and chairs the national Diversity in Local Government Leadership network (DLGL) – the only national network of its kind in local government. He also chairs the judging panel for the annual Chief Executive of the Year award for the MJ and is a co-judge on the Local Authority of the Year award.

Using his influence within the sector to support and promote future leaders, he has been an advisor, coach, and mentor to rising stars and helped encourage ethnic minority professionals to develop their networks and skills. He is a mentor on the NGDP BAME 2021 mentoring programme for graduates in the national management scheme in local government and the only executive head-hunter to be invited to join the board of Directors at The Staff College, which supports the development of leadership and management capacity in local authorities and their Children’s Trust partner organisations.

Prior to joining Green Park, Dawar has worked for some of the biggest recruitment firms including global giants such as Hays Executive and TMP Worldwide, as well as smaller boutique firms. He graduated from university with a degree in Law (LLB Hons) and completed his diploma in legal practice in 1998.

“I am thrilled to be joining Green Park. When I look at the recruitment industry, I see much of the same but this firm together with its people and its values really stands out for me. They have already won several accolades and awards, and their commitment to increasing diversity in the workplace is second to none.  I’m really impressed with their ambition and delighted to be able to join them on this journey.”
