The RJC is a whole-of-supply chain standards initiative for the jewellery supply chain, from mine to retail. It is unique in its participation of organisations at every step in the value chain, each bringing a commitment to a responsible supply chain and implementation of responsible business practices.

Acre were selected to conduct the search for two roles, an Assurance Manager and a Certification Manager. Our mission was to support the organisation through a significant change in structure and delivery, responding to increased pressure and legislation through jewellery supply chains, from mine to retail.

After a careful consultation period, we responded quickly, with focused shortlists, giving an overview of the market with a range of experience.

This resulted in a quick process, and two senior placements, one from responsible sourcing within a retailer exposed to significant high-risk supply chains, the other from a well-known consultancy responsible for the certification and assurance of audit data throughout relevant sectors.

By understanding the organisation thoroughly, we were able to support not just the technical elements of the role, but the important qualities around culture, long-term vision and motivations to reflect the internal changes within the client.
