  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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


  • "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

    Group Human Resources Director, Galliford Try


  • "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"


    Martin Coyd, Director of Environment, Health & Safety, Europe - Lend Lease


  • "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 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."
