Specialist & Technical

Specialist and technical roles are often functions which are confined - yet crucial - to a single sector.

Whether it be Adults and Children's Services in Local Government, Public Services Ombudsman in Central Government, Theatre Management in Healthcare, Category Management in Retail or both Anti Money Laundering (AML) and Actuarial in Financial Services, it's without doubt that each sector could not function without them. 

As a niche operator itself at the executive end of both interim management and executive search, Green Park truly understands the expertise required by a resourcing partner to comprehend a client's requirement successfully and identify the stongest long and shortlist candidates.

With a policy of only employing those consultants who have a long-standing passion for their sector and function, customers rely on Green Park time and again to help them find that elusive individual - whether it be a project manager, programme director or head of service.
