Samantha Calvey was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, contacting me regularly to update me on progress and helping me to think through my approach to the recruitment process. This was particularly useful for me as I have been in my current role for 17 years, so was somewhat out of practice!
Acre have been conducting a series of interviews to learn more about how our clients have found the virtual recruitment process during the current climate. We spoke with Francis Sullivan, Board Member for ResponsibleSteel, who has been part of the process to recruit their new CEO. To watch the full interview, please read more.
