Service Overview

Our Not-For-Profit Recruitment Service Overview

Acre works with a range of non-profit organizations to help drive programs around sustainability related initiatives. This includes charities, foundations, membership bodies and multi-stakeholder-initiatives (MSIs).

The non-profits that we work with tackle a range of challenges including:

  • Circular economy including ocean plastics

  • Human rights including worker safety and gender empowerment

  • Habitat protection and enrichment

  • Energy and climate change 

We work on a range of positions, including executive level roles (CEO’s, Executive Directors, Operations Directors and other C-level roles), other commercial positions, and roles which require domain knowledge of the issues being addressed. Where we are engaged to source commercial professionals, we can utilize Acre’s Frameworks' competency assessment tool to add extra insight to the interview process.

Acre has undertaken extensive Executive Search work with multi-stakeholder-initiatives, which are formed to facilitate collaboration between a number of different companies looking to address a common challenge. We have undertaken extensive work with non-profits in a range of countries including Europe, North America, the sub-continent (including Bangladesh) and beyond.

We work on permanent recruitment assignments as well as contract and interim assignments. We can also support our clients with consultancy assignments via our extensive network of sustainability interim consultants and freelancers.
