GreenSearch Global have expanded into Australia, with their first office opening in South Australia this month.
A global company with locations already across the United Kingdom and Europe, GreenSearch Global is an established search firm providing strategic recruitment solutions across the rapidly growing renewable energy, environment, and sustainability sector.
GreenSearch Global comes from good bones, with the same independent ownership structure as sister business Careerlink People Solutions.
With South Australia’s swift uptake of renewables and changing consumer sentiment, Director of GreenSearch Global Australia, Anna Pak Poy, felt the time was right for the expansion.
“Australians are becoming more conscious of what and who they are purchasing from and are increasingly aligning themselves with brands and businesses who have demonstrable environmental values,” she said.
This was highlighted in a recent independent survey which found 85 per cent of Australians want businesses to be more transparent about the origins and sustainability of their products and service offerings, and whether they are engaging in ethical practices.
Another study conducted by BBC Global found 58 per cent would stop buying a product or using a service they were previously loyal to if they discovered it was not committed to sustainability.
“South Australia has long been considered a world leader in adopting environmental initiatives and living ‘green,’” Anna said.
“While businesses have been proactive in identifying a need to increase their environmental and corporate social responsibility, many are lacking support and counsel to bring this to fruition.
“Our consultants work across all specialisms and disciplines in this market, acting as a strategic partner in helping your business capture and deliver the talent needed to make your sustainability projects and environmental goals successful.
“We have the technical expertise to support with recruitment needs – be it executive or contingency search, or interim staffing – as well as a range of other tailored services.”
GreenSearch’s commitment extends to enhancing the delivery of South Australia’s climate and sustainability goals, while pioneering a sustainable circular economy.
“We work with Australian businesses with the common goal of improvement and innovation to sustain the environment and economy.
“Our vision is to shape a sustainable future and support the growth of future industries by increasing efficiency at all stages of the product economy.”
