Ian was very helpful when navigating the different interview stages at Anthos. I was always well prepared and could lean on his advice. He understands the market well, is well connected, can always spare a few minutes to discuss and he is generally a nice person. I would definitely recommend working with Acre.
Ian was a pleasure to work with - really plugged into the sustainable finance space and opportunities there. Very supportive through the recruitment process. I highly recommend.
Ian's knowledge of both 'ESG' and the various sections of the finance industry makes him an effective facilitator of search and recruitment. I was surprised by how smooth, amicable and constructive he was able to make the process for all parties.
Marcel and Sofia were professional during the entire interview/recruitment process. They answered all my questions, and shared my comments and materials with my interviewers. They kept me in the loop during the entire process, and made sure I was comfortable with making the move to my current employer. 10/10, would work with them again.
