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.

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. The saying "Work hard, play hard" could not apply more to the lovely bunch I have the pleasure of working with. I really feel as though I have fitted in well at Astute.
