I loved the personalized service Acre provided, and having a third party I could go to with my questions and concerns. All in all, it was a great experience working with Helen, and I can't recommend Acre enough.

A COVID-19 Market Analysis For Sustainability & Safety Professionals
In the midst of the pandemic, society is evolving and adapting at an exponential pace. As recruitment and talent development specialists, we feel uniquely placed to provide insight into the direction that our core markets are taking as we work our way through this changed environment. The first instalment of our Rising Sun series will provide an informative platform to drive purpose-driven agendas forward and to support sustainability and EHS professionals to acclimatize.
Health, Safety and Environment Recruitment | Environmental Recruitment Service Overview
Acre has recruited in the field of environment, health and safety for over 10 years and we have seen the market and skill set develop dramatically over this time. We have been fortunate to work on many of the world’s most impactful Environmental roles and have global capabilities with offices in New York, London and Amsterdam.
We recruit at management to executive level and operate globally, working with large corporates but also with other organization types such as consultancies and multi-stakeholder initiatives concerned with improving Environmental 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 environmental management recruitment but work across all industry sectors from construction companies, to financial institutions and technology businesses.
In addition to our permanent and executive search recruitment capabilities, we have a growing contract and interim EHS recruitment team, who work globally to source experienced professionals, often for large infrastructure and environmental management projects. We can also support our clients with consultancy assignments via our Acre Bench, a group of best-in-class environmental management and sustainability interim consultants and freelancers.
An Evolving Profession:
Over the years, we have seen the environmental management profession evolve from being primarily a technical function, to one which is far more relevant to the broader commercial aspirations of business. As such, the competencies required, particularly at leadership and executive level, have developed a great deal. Modern environmental management 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.
Supporting the Transition:
Acre is supportive of this transition, and has developed a unique tool to assess the leadership and business competencies of EHS professionals, Acre Frameworks which has been developed in conjunction with many of the world’s leading EHS professionals. Beyond assessing these capabilities, our Frameworks team are able to support development through coaching and training at individual and team level.
The EHS roles we recruit for are in disciplines such as:
