What sort of impact do you want to make? We want brighter futures for all - our clients, our candidates, society and the environment. We want a world that's safe, ethical, inclusive, and sustainable. From time to time, people hear that and say, "That sounds like a nice ambition." But what we do and what we stand for is more than nice; it's urgent, and it's important.

Sustainability and climate change are the biggest challenges the global community has faced. The planet urgently needs us to change our ways, and heightened governmental and consumer pressure means that businesses need to make big changes as well. So, more and more organizations require sustainability-minded employees, for every role, in each department and skill set.

At Acre, we live our ambitions by specializing in finding those people - individuals who will go on to empower their organizations to meet net zero, cut carbon emissions, finance essential infrastructure projects and create the innovative technologies required to build a brighter future for us all.

We believe that creative solutions are needed and that through our research, connections and understanding of the ever-evolving sustainability space, we can create an impact and help other organizations to do the same.

As the leading global recruitment business operating in the sustainability and climate change sectors, Acre has experienced a huge increase in demand for our services as more businesses appoint sustainability movers and shakers. To help us deliver on these assignments and provide high-quality market intelligence to our clients, we are seeking to appoint a Senior Research Consultant within our New York office.

As a Senior Research Consultant, you will love finding solutions, creatively tackling challenges and collaborating with senior colleagues to deliver projects.

You will:

  • Conduct and deliver thorough market research, developing creative search strategies and gleaning information that can inform your approach and that of our clients

  • Engage with candidates, building relationships and identifying those who are not only a good fit for new opportunities but will strive to have an impact on the organization they join

  • Take an active role in client meetings, providing insight from your research and asking the right questions of clients to help you find solutions

  • Pro-actively project manage the search and selection process

  • Build relationships to become a trusted advisor while identifying opportunities for the application of Acre's other services

To be successful in this role, you will have:

  • A strong research and project management background

  • Prior experience in search/recruitment

  • Ability to think outside of the box and the desire to explore, ask questions and find solutions

  • Attention to detail and a results-driven approach

  • Excellent communication skills and a passion for working with people, understanding their motivations, behaviors and facilitating opportunities to bring to life a match between good people and good jobs

Whilst experience through a research degree or training would be greatly valued, it is not essential. At Acre, we're committed not only to the long-term success of the business but also to our team. We offer considerable support for your personal and professional growth, as well as the opportunity to work for an ethical and sustainable company that is at the forefront of the sustainability marketplace

You will be reporting to the Head of Research - USA. The target start date is April/May 2023.
