Acre is trusted by world-leading organisations, with an unmatched track record of placing energy executives responsible for transforming corporate strategy and growing clean technology start-ups. We support power producers, developers, and product and service organisations by sourcing executives to lead on operational and commercial strategy.
We actively maintain an extensive network of energy & technology leaders with expertise in business development, operations, product strategy, origination project development and M&A functions. Our expert consultants consistently place best-in-class candidates in roles from junior to executive level.
Our end-to-end contract and interim recruitment service utilises a large network of energy & cleantech professionals who are available for short-to long-term assignments. We help our clients quickly identify and engage high-impact professionals who can push forward energy & carbon agendas, execute specific projects, or provide quality cover for vacant positions.
"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

"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
"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

This is invaluable to Keepmoat as although the managers have the right technical skills, there is a need for them to have stronger management and leadership skills as their roles evolve in a growing business"
