    Resourcing Lead, BP


  • "The Acre team have supported us with business intelligence services through an important period of planning and restructuring. They have provided insightful information and guidance to help us make important decisions with efficiency and confidence. They are always at the end of the phone, are extremely supportive and have been generally marvellous throughout."


    Founder, Uscreates


  • "Acre is the first place I go for CR recruitment. They know the field of CR and sustainability so understand the challenges we face. But more importantly, they always have at their finger-tips a pool of high-calibre candidates that we can quickly access to fill any skills gaps we've identified. As a result, we've established a very productive working relationship."


    Director of Corporate Responsibility, Virgin Media


  • "When it came to recruit a Sustainable Development Manager, we looked for an organisation that specialised in this discipline and could work to a high standard. Acre did not disappoint - and the level of service provided was first class. Despite a very focused and defined job role, they were efficient in providing a shortlist of qualified candidates from which we were able to select an applicant of quality."


    Head of HR, Eurotunnel


  • "The whole team found the process very useful and many of the ‘areas of improvement’ identified in the report are now making their way in to our appraisal process. The comparison against the different groups i.e. leadership and fundamentals 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 comparing our team to the industry norm groups. We think we are a high performing team but comparing it to industry has helped confirm where we can improve"


    Simon Walker , Director of Environment, Health & Safety - Mount Anvil


  • "We had been looking to fill a difficult role for 2 years and had been through several rounds of interviewing without success. With their networking and specialist knowledge of the area, Acre were able to find a number of talented candidates which led to a successful appointment."


    Global Technical Manager, Syngenta


  • "Marks & Spencer worked with Acre on specific energy assignments and they understood our recruitment needs well. Their knowledge of the marketplace was impressive and they brought an informed and professional approach to the process."


    Senior Recruitment Manager, Marks & Spencer


  • "Tenacious Acre. The team persevered and delivered what seemed an impossible recruit. I thoroughly recommend the use of Acre’s services."


    CSR Manager, Burberry


  • "Laing O’Rourke have a vision for doing safety differently and this requires that not only do we approach the subject with a different mindset but that we consider the sort of attributes and characteristics that our people require to be successful in this new paradigm. Acre Frameworks gives us the insight required to allow both the organisation and, more importantly, the individual to focus on areas of strength and opportunity allowing both to excel in these areas of new challenge"


    John Green, Health, Safety and Environment Director – Laing O’Rourke


  • "We consider Acre to be a really valuable partner when it comes to finding the specialist people that we need to deliver for our clients. They know the market better than most, and really understand our business – making the recruitment process much smoother as a result. Plus they’re a great, committed and fun bunch to work with, which also helps!"
