  • "I have worked with Acre, for several years, to secure sustainability experts. I have found their capacity to understand the assignments, rapidly identify and match potential candidates - and then smooth the way to successful appointments - to be outstanding."


    Sustainability Manager, Jaguar Landrover


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


  • "The feedback provided from the assessment process run by Acre Frameworks has enabled Keepmoat to fully analyse and understand the development needs of its senior SHEQ team. 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"


    Tony Leach, Health, Safety and Environment Director - Keepmoat


  • "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 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


  • "Acre worked very effectively on the recruitment of sustainability and environment professionals for European and UK operations. Acre got a good grasp of our needs, and played an important role in the selection and appointment of a number of key individuals in to our organisation."


    Senior Director, McDonald's


  • "Frameworks is the kind of innovative and bold move we have come to expect from Acre. This initiative leads the way in driving a much needed change in the Health and Safety profession and confirms Acre’s place as market leader. The feedback from assessing the entire Lend Lease Health and Safety team has allowed us to refocus, engage, and develop our people to drive our organisational goal of creating an incident and injury free workplace. Utilising this tool as part of their recruitment offering, Acre support us in making informed hiring decisions and seamlessly transition new staff from recruitment into development"
