Astute has an amazing opportunity for an experienced IT Recruiter to join us at a really exciting time in the Company's expansion. This is a great chance to make a name for yourself as the first Recruiter focused on IT disciplines at Astute; which is synonymous with Engineering recruitment. We have great relationships with a large number of clients, many of which are keen for us to supply IT recruitment also. Our clients love the standard of care and customer service that we provide.

We pride ourselves on the internal investment that we have made as a business - not only on growth, but also on staff welfare and wellbeing. This will not be a half-hearted attempt to move into IT - this has the full backing of the MD and senior team as we execute the next stage of our strategic growth plan.

Located at the prestigious Lakeside North Harbour complex, Astute has recently moved into a larger office with a fully bespoke, contemporary fit-out - there is nothing else like it in the area.
