We’ve worked with Acumen for many years on a wide variety of projects. Fundamentally they get the right people in the right place at the right time, but what differentiates them from other suppliers in the industry is their willingness to think around the project and provide creative approaches to difficult recruitment challenges, and respond proactively to problems as and when they arise to ensure that more often than not they can give us the solution at the same time as raising the issue!
