  • 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
