A different kind of recruitment agency

At ACR we know that as an employer you have a wide range of recruitment agencies that you could choose to work with.

But from the moment we were established in 1995, we never intended to be the same as any other agency out there. Our founder, Anne Corder, had worked in HR and experienced first-hand the way that most agencies worked – making speculative calls, presenting candidates who didn’t have the right skills or hadn’t been vetted, and focusing on filling roles fast rather than ensuring the candidate and the employer were the right fit.

Anne Corder EMPLOYER 1 ALT
“I couldn’t have asked for a better-fitting candidate for the role.”

Anne’s vision was to provide a different kind of recruitment service where respect for employers and candidates was key and where the focus wasn’t on quantity (of sales) but on quality (of the candidates matched to companies and the service provided). A recruitment agency that was ethical and honest and built trusted relationships with both clients and candidates. 

This unique approach has seen the company Anne established grow from strength to strength to become one of Peterborough’s foremost recruitment agencies, known for its high standards and effectiveness at matching the right people with the right companies.

We work in partnership with HR departments and company owners, taking the time to understand their business, culture, and philosophy. We listen, act with integrity, and value every relationship we develop with employers and job seekers. And we are there for you well after you’ve hired your new member of staff, providing expertise and guidance at every stage of your business growth.

Sarah-Jane Bond

Recruitment Specialist

I have spent the majority of my career working in Operational and Project Management roles. I first worked with ACR about 25 years ago as a candidate. ACR secured me a role at RNIB, where I stayed for 15 years, finishing as Head of Operations. Recruitment has always been a big part of the roles I have undertaken and is something that I really enjoy. When you match a fantastic candidate with the right client there is no better feeling!
Favourite food: “Has to be any dish from the Mediterranean”
Favourite film: “There are many, love a chick flick, especially ‘The Holiday at Christmas”

Outside of work

“I love socialising with friends, can always squeeze a bit of retail therapy in around volunteering at Deeping Rangers FC, running their hospitality on match days.”

Sarah-Jane on ACR

“I couldn’t have been more delighted when Nel asked me to join the company and have felt at home since day one. They really do care about providing the best service for their clients and candidates, building genuine relationships with both. The team culture is second to none, everyone supporting and looking out for each other. It is a pleasure to come to work every day.”

Emily Roach

Recruitment Specialist

Emily was a Primary School Teacher for 10 years, before moving into the EdTech space, as a Relationship Specialist for MATs. She joined ACR in July 2023 and particularly thrives when recruiting for Account Management, Customer Service and Sales roles.
Favourite food:
“Spag bol or pizza”
Favourite film:
“The Notebook – or any romantic chick flick really!”
Outside of work
“I have a 1-year-old, so love fun family weekends with my fiancé and son more than anything. Time socialising with friends and family is where I’m happiest.”
Emily on ACR
“The unique culture, values, and style at ACR is polar opposite to other recruitment agencies and what I believed recruitment was. Having previously been a Relationship Specialist, I feel I’m doing the same thing! No hard sell, we truly care about our candidates and clients, and the team culture is 2nd to none!”
