  • "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


  • "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


  • "Thank you Acre for your initiative and innovation. This is my second placement with Acre and I'm getting more and more impressed with your work."


    Ethical Compliance Manager, Debenhams


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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 has risen rapidly to become the most specialised CR recruiter in the UK. I have always been impressed with the quality of candidates sent to me and I would have no hesitation to recommend Acre to anyone looking to find new people in the sustainability field."


    Head of European Sustainability Affairs, Samsung


  • "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


  • "Galliford Try used Acre to recruit a CR Manager to the business. The process they followed in matching our requirements with those of potential candidates was very thorough and ensured we received a high quality shortlist. They provided excellent support throughout the process which enabled us to secure our preferred candidate."
