"We have worked with Acre on a number of assignments across energy and sustainability and have been impressed with their level of service and the calibre of their candidates. Acre’s consultants have demonstrated an in-depth understanding, their professionalism makes them our first choice partner."
Recruitment Manager, Tesco
"Acre is the first place I go for CR recruitment. They know the field of CR and sustainability so understand the challenges we face. But more importantly, they always have at their finger-tips a pool of high-calibre candidates that we can quickly access to fill any skills gaps we've identified. As a result, we've established a very productive working relationship."
Director of Corporate Responsibility, Virgin Media
"The whole team found the process very useful and many of the ‘areas of improvement’ identified in the report are now making their way in to our appraisal process. The comparison against the different groups i.e. leadership and fundamentals was particularly useful in helping the team progress to the next role. I personally have found this to be really useful, firstly in identifying skills matrixes across the team but secondly comparing our team to the industry norm groups. We think we are a high performing team but comparing it to industry has helped confirm where we can improve"
Simon Walker , Director of Environment, Health & Safety - Mount Anvil
"Tenacious Acre. The team persevered and delivered what seemed an impossible recruit. I thoroughly recommend the use of Acre’s services."
CSR Manager, Burberry
"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."
EMEA Resourcing Manager, Bank of America
"There’s no doubt that Acre are the best when it comes to recruiting sustainability professionals. This is partly down to the high-calibre of candidates they find - but also because they take the time to understand the role, the requirements, and the business to find the perfect match."
Head of Corporate Responsibility, BSkyB
"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."
Global Technical Manager, Syngenta
"Thanks very much for your professionalism and perseverance in driving through this difficult specialist recruitment. We particularly liked your understanding of the candidate brief and the way you spotted the talents who fitted the mark. In addition to this you have been excellent with your organisation and helped me to keep track of the status of each candidate. Overall - an excellent working relationship resulting in a good conclusion to the recruit."
Head of Strategy, BT Global Services
"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
"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."
