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.
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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."
