We combine databases selection, search and online advertising to deliver our market-leading recruitment service.
Acre has been applying a collaborative, intelligence-led approach to safety and sustainability recruitment since 2003. We have successfully recruited more individuals in these markets than any other recruitment company.
We maintain a network of over 30,000 individuals in sustainability, HSE, CSR and energy, covering a huge range of skills and experience at all levels. We continually source fresh talent to ensure our network remains the best.
Our consultants aren’t just recruitment experts, they’re also specialists in the disciplines they work in. 70% of our team have studied, or are currently studying for a postgraduate qualification in sustainability, CSR, HSE, energy or a related subject.
"Tenacious Acre. The team persevered and delivered what seemed an impossible recruit. I thoroughly recommend the use of Acre’s services."
CSR Manager, Burberry
"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
"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."
Group Human Resources Director, Galliford Try
"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
"Acre was the only specialist search firm able to assist with our CSR search requirement. They were professional and extremely knowledgeable and we would not have been able to hire the talent we did without their expert assistance."
EMEA Resourcing Manager, Bank of America
"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
"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
"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 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."
