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.
Helen and her team are amazing. They are thoughtful, thorough and very professional. They ensured that I was aware of any relevant opportunities. When it was time for interviews, they provided solid guidance for advance preparation and helped me feel very confident. As a result, I ended up landing the perfect job! Highly recommended Acre.
