Great candidates and honest open communication.
Ben Flint and the Team at Acre have managed to fill some crucial roles for us during the pandemic with excellent candidates. This has not been an easy process and I appreciate the dedication.
Acre has delivered an excellent project for our business and has exceeded expectations on the brief. The insight we and our EHS team have gained from this will assist them in becoming more agile, competent and prepared for future business requirements.
Great team with great support and engagement throughout the process. I found the service offered by Ed and the team invaluable when moving into a new role.
They have helped facilitated personal growth and development which in turn has helped me to better understand and develop my own capabilities to support my team, business unit and wider internal business community.
Excellent, intelligent, helpful recruiters, with a very thorough understanding of their job market and the skills of those looking for new positions.
Great agency who really appreciate the human factor when jobs are available, and finding the correct fit for the employer. Highly respectful towards the candidates, and always keep you informed. Transparency and professionalism were all the way embedded in every action and arrangement. Really, really grateful for the hours of professionalism committed by the recruiter.
I find the Acre team to be thoroughly professional and innovative in both the recruitment and talent development markets. Acre Frameworks and the Advisory Panel is a vital and effective resource in developing good H&S leaders and individuals, as well as helping to change the UK public's perception of the H&S sector. I love working with Acre because I know it is mutually beneficial and they share our ethical and professional values.
Acre's Greg Brittian took the time to understand my career aspirations, didn't forget me as the years passed, and gave me the opportunity to achieve my goals. Greg invested in me over the long term and I don't think this is common in industry today. It was a win-win.
Frameworks is the kind of innovative and bold move we have come to expect from Acre. This initiative leads the way in driving a much-needed change in the Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) profession and confirms Acre’s place as a market leader. The feedback from assessing the entire Lendlease EHS team has allowed us to refocus, engage, and develop our people to drive our organizational goal of creating an incident and injury-free workplace. Utilising Acre's assessment service as part of their recruitment offering supported us to make informed hiring decisions and to seamlessly transition new staff from recruitment into development.
The whole team found our Acre Frameworks development program very useful and many of the ‘areas of improvement’ identified in the report are now making their way into our appraisal process. The comparison against the different groups i.e. leadership and foundations was particularly useful in helping the team progress to the next role. I personally have found this to be really useful, firstly in identifying skills matrixes across the team but secondly, in comparing our team to the industry norm groups. We think we are a high performing team but comparing it to the wider industry has helped confirm where we can improve.

We have been fortunate to work on many of the world’s most impactful environment, health and safety roles and have global capabilities with offices in New York, Amsterdam and London.
Our EHS Recruitment Services:
We recruit at management to executive level, and operate globally often working with large corporates, but also with other types of organizations such as consultancies and multi-stakeholder initiatives concerned with improving EHS standards for workers in the developing world. Our Executive Search offering is trusted by world-leading organizations to place leaders in roles that drive forward their agendas.
We have a strong focus on EHS recruitment within the construction sector, but work across all industry sectors from manufacturers, to financial institutions and technology companies.

In addition to permanent recruitment capabilities (including executive search) we have a growing EHS contract and interim recruitment team, who work globally to source experienced professionals, often for large infrastructure projects. We can also support our clients with consultancy assignments via our esteemed network of EHS and sustainability interim consultants and freelancers.

Modern EHS leaders are likely to be highly effective change managers, innovative and will have the ability to develop high performing teams, often with a global perspective.
