Acre has been pioneering corporate responsibility and sustainability recruitment since 2003.
What we do:
We maintain the market's most expansive sustainability network, helping our clients catalyse the integration of corporate responsibility and sustainability in partnership with organisations globally. We are proud to bring the most extensive offering of sustainability jobs to the marketplace, which you can find here.
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.
Acre is the specialist Executive Search consultancy supporting the Corporate Affairs and Communications functions. We work with Boards and Executive Committees to identify, evaluate and secure the modern blend of skillsets required where performance, purpose and reputation meet.
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).
Acre worked very effectively on the recruitment of sustainability and environment professionals for European and UK operations. Acre got a good grasp of our needs, and played an important role in the selection and appointment of a number of key individuals in to our organisation.
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.
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.
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.
I have worked with Acre, for several years, to secure sustainability experts. I have found their capacity to understand the assignments, rapidly identify and match potential candidates - and then smooth the way to successful appointments - to be outstanding.
