  • "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


  • "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


  • "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 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


  • "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."

  • "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


  • "We had been looking to fill a difficult role for 2 years and had been through several rounds of interviewing without success. With their networking and specialist knowledge of the area, Acre were able to find a number of talented candidates which led to a successful appointment."


    Global Technical Manager, Syngenta


  • "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


  • "The Acre team have supported us with business intelligence services through an important period of planning and restructuring. They have provided insightful information and guidance to help us make important decisions with efficiency and confidence. They are always at the end of the phone, are extremely supportive and have been generally marvellous throughout."
