Information Technology

While Technology has traditionally been viewed as a technical entity, that perception is changing as companies recognise the opportunity to build competitive advantage through best in class functions.

Rapidly advancing technology offers the chance to streamline and improve processes, operations and communications, yet it’s ultimately people who deliver the vision, create the strategy, and provide energy and impetus needed to create and embed change.

Even for senior technology positions, we understand that technical competencies and experience must be matched with the stakeholder management skills and the right culture fit to succeed in your environment.

Green Park provides flexible, fast-moving executive search and interim management services, focusing on identifying and attracting executives who are fully assessed and pre-qualified applying our bespoke assessments, underpinned by our ISO 9001:2000 resourcing methodology.

Clients value our inside knowledge and deep understanding of the complexity and challenges of the dynamic Technology space, which helps us to swiftly and accurately identify and attract the individuals within our network who will deliver the most value in the shortest possible time.

When you work with Green Park, you’ll work with experienced senior consultants with a robust working knowledge and understanding of the technical elements of technology roles, balanced with a deep understanding of business challenges, strategies and opportunities.
