How ACR adds value to our recruitment offering

Being independent allows Anne Corder Recruitment the flexibility to provide every client with the service which best suits their needs.

Our range of Added Value Services can be tailored to the particular demands of each recruitment campaign.

Regular progress reporting

Good communication is vital during the recruitment process. We will discuss and agree with you exactly what you require from the outset, from weekly reports to monthly, top level, statistical analysis. You will have a dedicated account manager who oversees the entire process from taking the brief to presenting a final activity report.

Advertising, design and copy

Our experience places us perfectly to advise you on when and where to advertise to get the best response. We can offer help and advice in the design and production of creative adverts that will produce the best response.

Response handling

We can take care of all aspects of recruitment administration, responding to each application and accessing CVs to ensure you only see the best possible shortlist. This ensures your time can be spent effectively on your business.

Campaign management

We have the capacity, expertise and knowledge to provide a full service recruitment package for your business from advertising to administration, CV sifting to interview feedback, confirmation to management reporting.

Our ISO accreditation is your assurance that we will act with integrity and professionalism on your behalf throughout every stage of the process.

Online exposure

Online social media has become an important communication channel for us and an ongoing part of our recruitment processes. We post vacancies on Twitter – find us @ACRPeterborough. We use our Facebook page to interact with candidates, providing information, tips and advice. Information is also shared on our Pinterest boards. We produce regular and targeted e-newsletters for candidates and clients as part of our communication process.


Our award winning eco-policies ensure our processes are streamlined, efficient and environmentally-friendly. Our commitment to running a paperless organisation has led us to introduce a number of online and electronic alternatives to traditional processes including time sheets, invoicing and information giving.

Salary survey

Since 1997, the Anne Corder Recruitment salary survey has been providing accurate information to local employers. With input from a host of companies in a range of sectors, the survey is a valuable benchmarking tool for those keen to remain remuneratively competitive. Alongside this, our team of experts has unrivalled local knowledge of the jobs market in the Peterborough region, ensuring we can offer up to the minute salary advice.

Our commitment to you and your organisation doesn’t end with a candidate’s acceptance letter. We offer continuing support and advice to placed candidates. This ongoing communication ensures the early resolution of any initial teething problems.

Bespoke management report

Our flexibility as an independent agency carries through to our ability to provide you with exactly the information you require in the format that best works for integration into your systems.


Our experts have supported the outplacement processes of a number of companies, providing practical, common sense advice and help.


Our annual employment law seminar is established as a ‘must do’ for HR and recruitment professionals. In partnership with local employment law experts we are able to provide an overview of the legal landscape and prepare you for upcoming legislative changes.

Personality profiling and psychometrics

Where appropriate we can use personality profiling and psychometric testing to identify those candidates likely to be the best fit with your organisation, While the interview process is a sound demonstration of oral communication skills and impact, professional profiling techniques can provide a much more accurate measure of a particular aspect of a candidate’s skills. Reports can be tailored to focus on the specific area that is of interest to you – for instance, sales, leadership style, emotional intelligence or teamwork.

We only work with professional, proven tests with the agreement of all parties.
