Technology, Media & Telecoms
More than any other sector, Technology, Media and Telecoms is characterised by change, with the speed of technological development fundamentally and frequently changing the way the industry operates and interacts with its customers.
That environment of change has created one of the most vibrant and dynamic sectors in the market, characterised by pace, innovation, and acute customer focus. With Technology, Media and Telecommunications sub-sectors increasingly overlapping as new concepts and ideas emerge, organisations within TMT face a combative environment for market share – in turn, that environment creates fierce demand and competition for the best interim and permanent talent.
Green Park has a strong executive recruitment track record across the TMT sector, working as preferred partners to organisations including Virgin Media, CBS Outdoor, The Clear Channel and Just Eat to name a few. Our approach is collaborative and consultative, working to supply interim managers and permanent talent who not only have the skills and experience required, but also match the unique stakeholder management and culture fit requirements of your organisation.
Equipped with a deep sector network of pre-qualified interim managers and executives, plus our pragmatic approach to helping secure and performance manage great results, we rise to the challenge.
