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.
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.
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.
