  • "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


  • "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 consider Acre to be a really valuable partner when it comes to finding the specialist people that we need to deliver for our clients.
