Greenfields Executive Recruitment & Search

About us

Greenfields was founded by Managing Director, Catherine Wolfe-Coote, in 2016 in order to fill a gap in the marketplace for an Executive Recruitment & Search firm which specialised exclusively in In-House Legal, Company Secretary, Corporate Governance and Regulatory Compliance appointments in the Sydney area. Greenfields offers bespoke and agile services which do not fall into the traditional ‘agency’ or ‘head hunting’ categories.


Greenfields has developed deep professional relationships with our business partners. Our team understands the needs of our Clients and the level of complexity around highly regulated industries. Greenfields consistently meets the mandates proposed by Clients and our successful placements are testament to this and reflected in our outstanding reputation in the marketplace.


Retained and Contingent assignments are offered and managed by a team of experienced professionals ensuring that best practices are adhered to and clients are satisfied with the level of expertise of service offered. Our recruitment process is supported by Greenfields specialised managed data base and research.


Greenfields have a diverse range of cross sector clients, from ASX listed organisations, non-listed organisations, multinationals, start-ups, SME’s and the not-for-profit. We offer bespoke solutions tailored to each assignment based on industry, team diversity, sector and culture.


Greenfields is a Diversity & Inclusion champion and we take pride in assisting organisations in reaching progressive goals. We strive to deliver balanced shortlists and adhere to robust policies on Diversity & Inclusion; Data Storage & Privacy; Workplace Health & Safety; Modern Slavery; and Environmental, Social & Governance.


Known for our market knowledge, technical understanding, deep networks and robust processes, we are also regular contributors and sponsorship partners with the Governance Institute of Australia (GIA), the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) and the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD).


Taking a highly personalised approach, Greenfields likes to be thoroughly familiar with values, cultures and brand positioning to ensure appropriate shortlisting and successful hiring decisions. Being an equal opportunity and diversity champion, we like to offer flexible working solutions were possible and will endeavour to assist employers in reaching gender diversity targets. We operate with integrity and authenticity, often being viewed as an extension of our clients own human resources or recruiting departments. Greenfields has an excellent reputation within the industry and a growing market presence.
