Professional Services

Following the economic upheaval and reset economy, there is fierce competition for the highest calibre talent as organisations look to rebuild and revitalise.

However, the candidate market has also changed, characterised by more conservative, risk-averse behaviours – meaning candidates are far less open to moving to new opportunities. At Green Park, we have a demonstrable track record helping our clients across the Private and Public sectors to secure the best new talent, ensuring we convert identification into attraction by pro-actively positioning you as an employer of choice.

Green Park’s Professional Services & Management Consultancy recruitment team focuses on high-level executive placements.  We concentrate exclusively on identifying and attracting executives across market sectors and service lines, placing Senior Managers through to VP / Partners.  The team at Green Park understands the complexity and subtleties of a matrix organisation, bringing clarity, transparency and open communication to any recruitment exercise we are engaged to deliver. We work with a range of firms across the industry that range from ‘Big Four’ to boutique strategy houses with particular traction across business change and transformation, sales and business development, IT consulting and business strategy.

We deliver the bulk of our work with major consulting and professional services firms, in-house consulting teams of large corporates, professional services arms of major systems integrators and technology / software vendors, as well as niche consultancies. We are deeply committed to building long-term relationships with clients, providing flexible resourcing solutions with a tailored approach to each individual requirement.  We also develop long term relationships with our candidates, providing them accurate and impartial advice on their career options, as well as pro-actively presenting their details to our client base where appropriate.
