Acre was extremely professional in facilitating my appointment as Nature-Based Solutions Technical Manager by ClimateCare. From the moment I was shortlisted for the position, Acre was very quick in arranging meetings and interviews, and the consultant definitely understood the requirements of their client. Acre's handling of the whole recruitment process was exceptional.
Acre's knowledge and understanding of the sustainability and environmental sector is outstanding. Their research, intelligence and networking capabilities make them an important partner for us as we grow our business in Europe. They are an impressive team.
Good communications all the way through and a good selection of candidates.
I find that Acre listen well, understand your requirements and the sustainability space, and are customer responsive.
I am very happy with using them, and three of my new staff have come to us via Acre.
