Board Practice & Advisory

The highest level of your organisation deserves the highest level of resourcing expertise.

Overcoming recruitment hurdles is a speciality of ours at Green Park and our Board Practice really showcases that. By focusing exclusively on challenging areas such as timing, accuracy, equitability and transparency of process, we’re able to deliver accommodating solutions at the highest level.

But what does that mean? Quite simply, we understand that your unique business culture has to be fully understood and considered before it evolves. Our Board Practice members have the business expertise and people skills to not only direct the organisation to a more beneficial outcome but also represent the corporate and stakeholder needs and business strategy going forward.

Our Board Practice delivers solutions from the platform of a scientific, evidence-based approach to head-hunting, with a thoughtful and highly consultative approach to assignment due diligence, coupled with consideration for customer sensitivity and the enormous effect a senior level hire of this nature can have on any business.

When helping you recruit at board level (including NEDs), we understand your needs are individual as an entrepreneurial partner. We openly reject a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to board assessment, since every organisation has unique challenges, goals and priorities.

Discover a refreshing new way to recruit at this level with Green Park and you’ll get the confidentiality and security of a watertight process, coupled with the entrepreneurial flair and passion you need to find the right people for your most crucial roles. When we work on Board or NED mandates, our focus is on ‘action-orientated’ hires: people with the board level experience, attitude and passion to make a genuine and sustainable difference.

With our £35masset base, a dedicated staff team and a reputation built up over centuries, we are now embarking on a number of innovative ventures. We are planning a new21st Century alms house. We are finding new ways to invest in our communities.

We have a strong reputation and track-record. We have been giving grants to charities and other grass-roots groups for many years enabling them to thrive and to support their local communities. Our alms houses in Bankside and Purley are places of joy and beauty for older people from Southwark to live in. We have cared for our listed investment properties in Borough Market over centuries; they are part of Southwark's historic fabric.

We now need to broaden the skills and range of Trustees to support our new Chief Executive and his growing team. We are all passionate and committed to Southwark, its people, places and heritage. We are looking for three new trustees to join a Board with a vision to set new standards for beautiful extra care alms houses and imaginative community investments. We want to do brilliant things, and to be influential locally and nationally.

If you have knowledge of social housing operations, finance and investments, or investment in communities, then I hope you will explore further this wonderful opportunity. Trustees should ideally live or work in the London Borough of Southwark.
