  • I have received nothing but the heartiest welcome into the Business. Not your normal recruitment agency. Firstly, you receive thorough training. Instantly you get the welcoming atmosphere and there is great team morale. Management listens, Colleagues listen and my opinion and any offering I contribute, I feel is valued and taken seriously. I really enjoy the level of support I receive as a newbie to both Recruitment and the world of Technical and I genuinely feel valued. I would highly recommend and already have to many of my contacts!

  • A friendly environment that takes work seriously. Everyone at Astute seems to very much enjoy being here and that reflects on the atmosphere in such a positive way. No one ever seems to have an issue with lending a helping hand when it is needed. The way that the staff on the floor are very focused and hardworking spurs you on to be the same.
