Green Park’s Local Government Practice has quickly established itself as a market leader, with a proven track record providing innovative and tailored executive interim management and executive search solutions to a broad range of Local Government clients. In a crowded supplier market we have differentiated ourselves by turning traditional, complacent recruitment methodology on its head in order to deliver innovative, bespoke and outcome-focused solutions.

The Local Government team at Green Park has built a reputation for delivering watertight, fully auditable recruitment processes. Without exception or compromise, the people we identify and attract to our clients meet our robust selection and assessment criteria, which cover technical skills, experience, and cultural fit. Our ISO quality accredited methodology gives us evidence-based data that enables us to remove the risk of interim  hires, giving our clients the confidence to proceed with their own planning and strategies as they strive to improve service to their own customers.

As trusted advisors, we work in partnership with our clients to understand their issues and tailor our solutions accordingly; over 80% of our work comes from repeat business, recommendations and referrals. Clients value our in-depth knowledge of Local Government and our robust and un-intrusive approach which rapidly gives them access to the best talent in the market.
