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.
