Steve Utton

Principal Recruitment Consultant - Power

Steve joined Astute in February 2013 as a Resourcer, soon working his way up to his current role as the Power O&M (Operations and Maintenance) Team Leader. Previously Steve studied Sports Development at the University of Chichester before going travelling in 2011 for 6 months to India, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand and USA. Upon his return and realising he had 37p to live off, Steve got jobs working in research and marketing before embarking on his recruitment career at Astute.

With two days never the same, Steve’s responsibilities include managing, training and developing junior members of the team, dealing with clients to discuss new and existing requirements, advert writing, arranging interviews and spending time on site with clients to gain a further insight and understanding of the industry; Steve has mastered the high-vis look to perfection.

Outside of work, Steve is a huge sports fan: he plays football, tennis, and in the past 18 months he’s got into golf, aiming to get his handicap down to 20 by the end of the year. Deserving a well-earned rest Steve can also be found binge-watching a Netflix boxset, planning the next beach holiday and placing the odd accumulator football bet on the weekends, watching the money roll in.
