  • "There’s no doubt that Acre are the best when it comes to recruiting sustainability professionals. This is partly down to the high-calibre of candidates they find - but also because they take the time to understand the role, the requirements, and the business to find the perfect match."


    Head of Corporate Responsibility, BSkyB


  • "We have worked with Acre on a number of assignments across energy and sustainability and have been impressed with their level of service and the calibre of their candidates. Acre’s consultants have demonstrated an in-depth understanding, their professionalism makes them our first choice partner."


    Recruitment Manager, Tesco


  • "Thanks very much for your professionalism and perseverance in driving through this difficult specialist recruitment. We particularly liked your understanding of the candidate brief and the way you spotted the talents who fitted the mark. In addition to this you have been excellent with your organisation and helped me to keep track of the status of each candidate. Overall - an excellent working relationship resulting in a good conclusion to the recruit."


    Head of Strategy, BT Global Services


  • "As trawlermen the world over will attest, you're going to get a better catch if someone knows where the fish are to be found. When it comes to recruitment, Acre appear to know not just where the fish are, but the specific type of fish you are searching for in particular. We were delighted with the recruitment process and the high-calibre candidates it produced. Great service as well."


    Head of Community and Campaigns, The Co-operative


  • "Acre has been a great partner in helping us fulfill our resourcing requirements. The service we have received from the team is truly that of a partner who understands our business and we are always guaranteed an exceptional personal service which is a rarity in this day and age."


    Resourcing Lead, BP


  • "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!"


    Head of Sustainability, Radley Yeldar


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


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