Helping find and hire talented professionals for all areas of investment, distribution, risk and research in banking and finance, and influential leaders to help push forward sustainable investment and corporate citizenship agendas.

We’re constantly searching for the best new talent in health, safety & environment, augmenting our already impressive network with leaders who can drive cultural change. Our expert and experienced consultants, backed by our unique Acre Frameworks assessments and objective non-technical data, have a strong track record of placing senior HSE executives at world-leading organisations.

​We partner with forward thinking and world-leading corporates, power producers, consultancies and technology innovators in the energy ecosystems to attract, recruit and retain talented renewable energy and clean technology professionals.

Our expertise focuses on those shaping change through developing and implementing compelling strategy, policies and campaigns across the following disciplines and functions: Reputation and Issues Management, Public Affairs and Government Relations, Stakeholder and Community Engagement.

Acre works with a range of non-profit organisations to help drive programmes around sustainability related initiatives. This includes charities, foundations, membership bodies and multi-stakeholder-initiatives (MSIs).

What Our Clients Say...

  • Acre was the only specialist search firm able to assist with our CSR search requirement. They were professional and extremely knowledgeable and we would not have been able to hire the talent we did without their expert assistance.

    Bank of America
  • Acre has been a great partner in helping us fulfill our resourcing requirements. The service we have received from the team is truly that of a partner who understands our business and we are always guaranteed an exceptional personal service which is a rarity in this day and age.

    Resourcing Lead

    BP
  • A pleasure to work with and a great outcome.

    Acre distinguished themselves in their value proposition which is why we appointed them. What set them apart further was their delivery of an ambitious and complex project comprising the selection and recruitment of multiple senior people. Our partners Johnny and Anna were extremely professional and capable in their fields of expertise and I would highly recommend them and their colleagues to anyone considering sourcing top talent.

  • As trawlermen the world over will attest, you're going to get a better catch if someone knows where the fish are to be found. When it comes to recruitment, Acre appear to know not just where the fish are, but the specific type of fish you are searching for in particular. We were delighted with the recruitment process and the high-calibre candidates it produced. Great service as well.

    Head of Community and Campaigns

    The Co-Operative
  • We had been looking to fill a difficult role for 2 years and had been through several rounds of interviewing without success. With their networking and specialist knowledge of the area, Acre were able to find a number of talented candidates which led to a successful appointment.
