Why Green Barks Search?


Simply a Clearer, Brighter Future


The name Green Barks originates from Johnny's grandfather's home on the edge of Ilkley Moor, West Yorkshire where he has fond memories as a child.


"I believe that there is no point in searching for talent for today without a vibrant and sustainable world tomorrow.  As good fortune would have it, I was brought up in the Yorkshire Dales and immersed myself in the countryside and, over the years, I travelled to enjoy the diverse and wonderful landscape and cultures in Africa.


Green Barks Search pledges that with every assignment, we will plant trees across Yorkshire and Kenya, helping the world become greener and more sustainable through channelling our clients’ unwavering support in Green Barks Search.


At Green Barks Search we change today for tomorrow’s success.


Thank you.”


Johnny Fieldhouse
