What are your ambitions?
We don't mind going first... We're commercially minded, but we want to make an impact. 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 isn't nice; it's urgent, and it's important.
After all, sustainability and climate change are at the forefront of everyone's mind. Greta Thunberg and Sir David Attenborough are amplifying the message to the masses: The planet urgently needs us to change our ways. How are we going to fix it without the right people finding the right solutions?
Heightened governmental and consumer pressure means that businesses need to make big changes. So, more and more, organisations require sustainability-minded employees, for every role, in each department and skill set.
We live our ambitions by specialising in finding those people - those who will go on to empower their organisations 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.
So, what about you - what are your ambitions?
If you're ambitious to be both commercially successful but also to create an inspiring legacy, you're in the right place. Perhaps that's not a place you thought a career in recruitment could take you - to a place where you can prosper and drive real, meaningful change - but at Acre, that's our purpose.
Right now, we're experiencing incredible levels of growth, and the volume of roles we're working on is growing exponentially. To help us deliver, we're looking to hire a Recruitment Consultant to work on the growing contract and interim recruitment desk of our Sustainable Business Team.
Someone who may not love business development but who can source excellent candidates and deliver an exceptional recruitment process.
If this sounds like you, let's tell you a bit more about it.
We're a global recruitment business operating in the sustainability and climate change sectors. This explains a little about why we're so busy - everyone is looking to tackle these problems head-on right now, but also needs a recruitment partner that's well versed in these markets. Fortunately, we've been doing this a long time - for almost twenty years - so we know what our clients are looking to achieve and the solutions that will get them there.
For the past three years, Acre has been growing out of our contract and interim practice into a successful and busy team, with constant and growing demand. We're looking for exceptional talent to support the growth of this team and join us on our exciting journey.
What will your core responsibilities be in this role?
Supporting urgent delivery requirements for key temporary hires in your market: you'll capture an accurate understanding of client briefs quickly and efficiently to ensure the timely recruitment of leading contract and interim professionals on a diverse range of interesting fixed-term contracts, interim assignments, consultancy/advisory projects and more.
Engaging exceptional candidates: you'll keep your finger on the pulse in the candidate marketplace at all times, looking for creative and innovative ways to build your own network, and Acre's already existing network, to identify individuals who are relevant to your client's search requirements and to engage candidates regularly so that they know which contract roles you're recruiting for and when.
Successfully delivering recruitment processes in a way that'll make your clients want to tell their friends about it: you'll project manage every aspect of a short, efficient recruitment cycle - from CV to completion. You'll then partner with Acre's operations & finance teams to onboard your contractors seamlessly onto our payroll and timesheet systems.
What will you get in return?
You're a valued partner here.
As the only search firm in the world with the depth of experience to tackle some of the planet's biggest issues, we operate as a trusted advisor to our clients, not just a recruiter. The value you'll add to our clients runs much deeper than getting a person in a seat. You'll be supporting meaningful change being made in the world by asking your clients, 'What impact do you need us to support you with making?' Our team is built on passion and integrity, not KPIs, and the value you'll add goes far beyond numbers.
You'll grow with us.
There's never been a more exciting time to be here. We're seeing exponential growth, which means new offices across the globe, and rapid headcount and commercial expansion year on year. This means that the potential to be successful at Acre is significant. We need great people to be part of the business and offer share options to those who can help us succeed - in fact, 20% of Acre's equity is in the hands of our team.
You'll be set up for success.
We set you up for success and invest in mechanisms, be those in-house support functions or technology solutions, which have the same goal: to support you to be more efficient, leaving you more time to do what you do best.
Some of the ways we'll support you include:
Virtual Assistant (VA) Access
Our trusted VAs relieve the admin burden of the recruitment process and streamline everyday tasks like booking interviews, scheduling pre and post-interview calls, and coordinating diaries with your clients and candidates.
Extensive Marketing Support
Our marketing team are on hand to support you to produce best-in-class proposals, credible and eye-catching search documents and partner with you to build your brand. Our investments in marketing and brand building also take the pain out of business development, making sure our clients know who you are and how to find you when they need you.
Operations, Technology & Finance
We have a strong and ever-growing focus on technological and operational excellence and continually invest in solutions that will help alleviate administrative tasks from your to-do list so that you can give your clients and candidates your undivided attention.
Our experienced team of global research consultants take the stress out of tricky searches, armed with the tools, knowledge and expertise to find the candidates you need.
We are an international business operating in London, New York, Amsterdam and Asia Pacific. Our ambition is to achieve a "One-Acre" culture that capitalises on the spirit of collaboration between all of our regions. This means that we encourage international relocation opportunities and secondments where it is beneficial to the business and our team members.
