    Great team with great support and engagement throughout the process. I found the service offered by Ed and the team invaluable when moving into a new role.

  • Tony Leach - Keepmoat Homes - Testimonial

    The feedback provided from the assessment process run by Acre Frameworks has enabled Keepmoat to fully analyse and understand the development needs of its senior SHEQ team. This is invaluable to Keepmoat as although the managers have the right technical skills, there is a need for them to have stronger management and leadership skills as their roles evolve in a growing business.

  • Fiona Morgan - Sail GP - Testimonial

    Last year I worked with Acre to find a new role and as part of the process, I completed a leadership assessment and coaching program. It was amazing to get this added value as part of the process and shows Acre’s commitment to developing and growing talent. The assessment allowed me and my new employer to really understand my strengths and development areas through insight. It was great to ensure I was aligned to the role and wider organisation, culture and values which is critical in the purpose and sustainability field.

    A few months into my role I had a follow-up coaching session and it was really beneficial to stop, reflect and discuss my personal development. This service was a great addition to the recruitment process and I think very beneficial for all involved.​

  • Jeff Roycroft - Thai Union Group - Testimonial

    ​I secured my dream job through Acre, who supported me throughout the entire process from the first interview to negotiating my contract.

    I was particularly impressed with the Leadership Competency assessment ahead of the final interview, and I was similarly impressed with the post-offer coaching sessions.

    This involved helping me learn from experiences in previous roles and how to lever this learning to formulate a clear strategy for starting my new role.

  • Head of Health Safety & Security - ZSL - Testimonial

    ​​A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of working with the extremely talented Kendelle Tekstar from Acre Frameworks. I participated in some self-discovery around my non-technical competencies, with the aim of influencing and improving my thinking and behaviour, as part of my continued professional development.

    The whole process was very insightful and most certainly thought-provoking. I have come away with a much improved self-awareness and a discovery of self-development. I am just trying to be the best that I can by taking responsibility for self leadership. This positive process has highlighted areas which I was previously blinded to and where I now hope to address this and unlock the further potential for growth.

  • HSE Director - Laing O'Rourke - Testimonial

    Laing O’Rourke have a vision for doing safety differently and this requires that we not only approach the subject with a different mindset, but that we consider the sort of attributes and characteristics that our people require to be successful in this new paradigm. Acre Frameworks gives us the insight required to allow both the organisation and, more importantly, the individual to focus on areas of strength and opportunity, allowing both to excel in these areas of new challenge.

    Frameworks is the kind of innovative and bold move we have come to expect from Acre. This initiative leads the way in driving a much-needed change in the Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) profession and confirms Acre’s place as a market leader. The feedback from assessing the entire Lendlease HSE team has allowed us to refocus, engage, and develop our people to drive our organisational goal of creating an incident and injury-free workplace. Utilising Acre's assessment service as part of their recruitment offering supported us to make informed hiring decisions and to seamlessly transition new staff from recruitment into development.

    Anna’s coaching has been absolutely key in me securing my last two executive positions. It helped me align key personal requirements with key career aspirations. This gave me some much needed clarity as a working mother.


    It also pushed me professionally and as a result, I’ve seen my performance, the perception of me and my team, move forward in a big way.

  • Karl Huntzicker - Salesforce - Testimonial

    To help us to invest in the success of our Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) team, we engaged Acre Frameworks to identify group strengths and development needs.

    To ensure that we were able to put their recommendations into action, we also decided to include personal coaching sessions for each team member. The sessions with our coach have provided each team member with the ability to receive professional and independent development guidance based upon their discussions and Frameworks assessment. It has been so well received that we are excited to continue the coaching going forward.

    With their commitment to facilitate the Health, Safety & Environment (HSE) industry's transition towards a more progressive approach through Acre Frameworks, Acre was uniquely positioned to partner with us on our project to put HSE & Sustainability at the heart of our business.

    We had incredibly positive feedback on the Development and Assessment Centre (DAC) that Acre Frameworks designed for us, attended by our top HSE & Sustainability leaders across the globe. Bespoke training and development plans were rolled out globally based on outcomes from the DAC with support from Acre, which once again received very positive feedback.

  • Lauren Green - The Co-Op Property - Testimonial

    Following our Risk, Health, Safety & Environment (RHSE) team’s experience with an Acre Frameworks coaching and development programme, we enlisted Acre's recruitment function to support us with two key hires. After working with other specialist recruiters to no avail, Acre took over the process and helped us get back on the right track.

    Their approach was enhanced by the inclusion of their Acre Frameworks assessments as part of the recruitment process. Ultimately, this gave us the confidence that our selected candidates were both technical experts and the right people for the job from a cultural perspective, resulting in two first-class hires. Moving forward, I wouldn’t look beyond Acre for our RHSE team’s growth and development.

The world needs big outcomes, so we don’t think small and since businesses want new outcomes, we recruit and develop talent differently.

We don’t just recruit people with the right knowledge and experience, we assess their potential fit for a role and a business. We then develop them to translate their passion and knowledge into a language that their business understands, equipping them with the skills needed to disrupt traditional thinking and deliver measurable impact at every level of an organisation.


Why is Acre Frameworks best placed to coach and train health, safety & sustainability professionals?

  • Our development services are underpinned by a market-leading competency framework that we co-created in collaboration with 100+ industry leaders to determine 'what good looks like' in purpose-led professions. This includes, but is not limited to:

      • Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability

      • Corporate Affairs & Communications

      • Health & Safety

      • Energy & Cleantech

      • Climate Change & Environment

      • ESG & Impact Investing

  • We access Acre’s extensive network, built over 18 years of niche recruitment experience with safety and sustainability professionals from all over the globe.

  • We leverage data from 2,000+ purpose-led leaders - the largest of it’s kind for professionals in sustainability-related functions - to support our clients to make more informed decisions.


How does Acre Frameworks approach non-technical development?

​Our experience coaching safety and sustainability professionals has taught us that individuals and teams need a structured platform for professional development that allows for flexibility within that framework to freely self-develop. With that, we consider the following three 'stages' of development to be fundamental to achieving sustainable behaviour change:

Discover - Leadership Assessments

Before you can help someone acquire skills, you have to get them into a position where they’re ready and willing to learn – particularly, if they’re naturally resistant to change. We like to think of the ‘discover’ phase of development as unlocking your ‘why’ and we do this with the help of our Acre Frameworks assessments.

Our leadership assessments provide objective insight into an individual’s underlying behavioral preferences and how these preferences are likely to impact their performance in a work setting – be that in a positive or limiting way.

By understanding strengths and limiting behaviours, those who are effective in the discovery phase of development reflect on their motivations, their accountability in their role, what’s in it for them to change, what resources they’ll need to do so and more. Once the intention and motivation behind development plans are clear and individuals are consciously practicing self-awareness, they can move onto evaluating how they will set and achieve their goals.





Explore - Leadership Coaching

Once an individual or team understands their motivations and what’s in it for them to change, we help them to explore their thinking, to frame challenges as opportunities and ultimately, to develop a growth mindset to become a more effective leader. We like to think of the 'explore’ phase of development as unlocking your ‘how’ and we do this through a range of individual and group coaching solutions.

Our coaching journeys begin by reviewing and redefining objectives that were highlighted during the discovery process. Coaching provides our clients with much-needed time and space to actively reflect on their personal development and to put strategies in place to achieve meaningful outcomes.

Experiment - Leadership Training

After discovering an individual’s need for development and exploring how they might effect sustainable behaviour change, it is time for participants to turn coaching insights into actions. With that, we like to think of the ‘experiment’ phase of development as unlocking your ‘what if’s’ and we do this by creating fail-safe training environments for individuals and teams to experiment with practical strategies to address their development objectives.  

A fundamental element of our training programmes involves replacing traditional, full-day workshops with ‘bite-sized’ learning sessions that allow for time and space in between sessions for participants to practice and to reflect on their progress.
