I have rated Acre with 5 stars, as they really understand our business needs and the specific roles being targeted. The entire engagement was extremely detailed, professional and resulted in new hires that have made a positive impact in our company.
Die Kommunikation mit Dulce war super. Es hat Spaß gemacht mit ihr zu telefonieren und Sie hat mich sehr gut im Bewerbungsprozess unterstützt. Besser hätte ich nicht vorbereitet gewesen sein können.
Communication with Dulce was great. It was fun to talk to her on the phone and she supported me very well in the application process. I couldn't have been better prepared.
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 leadership assessment and coaching sessions brought me a wealth of meaningful insight. During the recruitment process, Josh made me aware of my dominant personality traits and how those traits may lead to positive or negative leadership behaviors. Connecting these dots helped me understand which behaviors have led to success in my career, but also where I have been holding myself back.
During the two subsequent coaching sessions with Ed, I was able to use these insights to create well-defined, concrete goals for my new role. I feel better equipped to pursue these goals with a newfound self-awareness of my strengths and weaknesses, because Acre provided guidance that was specifically tailored to me.
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.
