recruitment consultant


Your success is our success. See what our customers have to say.


I have dealt with many agencies and recruitment consultants over the last few months - many talked a good game but delivered very little. This, however, is not true of Astute and in particular Dan Grosvenor. Constantly working with his colleagues, Dan made huge efforts to find me a new role which has culminated in my current position, a position I have always aspired to. Based on his work ethic and personality I would recommend Dan in particular and his Astute network over and above all others, particularly when it comes to both traditional and Renewable Power Generation.

Plant Manager

I would like to personally thank Cherie Moore for all the support she gave me transitioning in to my new role. She offered a truly exceptional service; professional, patient, and very friendly. She is a real asset to Astute Technical Recruitment.

Asset Analyst

I’ve always found Dan Bissett at Astute an absolute pleasure to deal with; very professional, thorough, and also extremely helpful to me as a candidate. He’s able to offer great advice on the companies he deals with and on the positions he fills, which shows he’s put in an extensive amount of research - he deserves all the success that comes his way.

Before being contacted by Astute, the thought of working in the power industry had never entered my head. Two and a half years later I’m in a well paid position and hopefully looking forward to a bright future. I really can’t thank you enough! I would be more than happy to recommend Dan and Astute to any prospective recruiters and candidates.

Operations Technician

​Steve Utton has represented me in a professional manner and has used his knowledge and experience to place me in various employment opportunities, for which I am most grateful. I have been successful working for Viridor and the role has opened future promotion possibilities for me. I have been registered with Astute for some time now and over this period have experienced the full range of staff interaction whilst looking for employment opportunities. I can say that I am highly impressed with the professional approach that each and every consultant has on a day to day basis with their clients and customers. Many thanks to everyone at Astute.

Assistant Shift Team Leader



I have known Kevin Over for several years as he has supplied a number of contract personnel on contracts that I have managed. The calibre of people Kevin has put forward has always been of a high standard, he works well with tight deadlines and is always willing to go the extra mile.

I would advise that over the years our relationship has grown stronger due to Kevin's eagerness to assist in requests, helped by his quick wit and outgoing personality, and has even resulted in Astute becoming the sole contract personnel supplier to Energos on all of their projects. I would have no problem recommending Kevin Over and Astute to any organisation. 

Site Manager,

Energy from Waste Plant

Graveson Energy Management have engaged Astute’s services to provide a Site Manager, Control Room Technicians and Process Operators for our Waste to Energy facility. The quality of the candidates Astute sourced has been excellent with well above average conversion rates of candidates to offers (on average, 50% of the CVs we have seen have resulted in offers of employment).

Astute’s attention to detail in terms of screening candidates and speed of follow up have been particularly impressive and this coupled with the candidate summaries provided with each CV made the recruitment process fast and efficient

Operations Director,

Waste to Energy Company

I have used Astute for nearly two years for the provision of condition monitoring personnel across all industry sectors that we work in. Due to our expediential growth of late we have needed to resource outstanding candidates at relatively short notice to fulfil our business requirements and have found their service first class. Always attentive in every detail, fully understanding our demanding requirements and able to resource our needs quickly, efficiently and to budget. Occasionally they would highlight outstanding personnel before the need arises and we hope to keep this successful relationship going for the foreseeable future as our business grows throughout Europe.

Managing Director,

Technology Consultancy

Kevin Over provided a professional, courteous and knowledgeable service and where he didn't have the answers he quickly resolved them. I found his manner to be supportive and would have no hesitation in recommending him to my peers, or in using his services again in the future.

Project Director,
