Highly recommended! Josh and Sarah have been fantastic at Astute. They've found and placed me in 2 jobs now between them, both really responsive and excellent at keeping you up to speed with things. Very knowledgable about the roles and happy to talk to companies with any queries you have.

Great agency one of the best ones I've worked with! Liz has been a great help and support in helping me towards a new direction in my career life. She is very attentive and keeps me in the loop at all times! She makes the extra effort to work with my preferred requirements for work and even if it isn't completely attainable she meets me in the middle and does as much as she can to help! Also Liz is very funny might I add 😂 and I'm happy that I can now put a face to the name after all these years! Thank you again Liz for all your help and support! 😊

Josh and the Astute team was very swift to help me to find roles that matched my profile. They are really reliable and will help through every step of the recruitment process going out of their way to assist and follow up when needed. Could not find a better recruitment agency!

Fantastic recruitment agency.. Josh was extremely enthusiastic, encouraging and clearly knowledgeable about what was needed from both the employee and the employers point of view. Extremely supportive especially in regards to interview preparation and endeavoured to procure feedback promptly. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Astute in the future to both candidates and recruiting businesses particularly for the right fit for the role!!!

celebrating recruiters everywhere who find that one of a kind candidate

Happy #NationalUnicornDay – in honour of all finance recruiters who find that magical one-of-a-kind candidate!

Here at Astute, we have adopted our very own unicorn as our cuddly mascot! We felt it appropriate to celebrate these mythical creatures as we are always finding ‘unicorns’ for our clients! 😊

ABOUT NATIONAL UNICORN DAY

National Unicorn Day on April 9th each year celebrates the mythical horse-like creature with a single, pointed horn growing from the centre of its forehead.

Unicorns have been a popular mythical creature since Ancient Greek times when people believed they lived in exotic India. While they were once considered to be fierce, powerful animals, many now see them as a symbol of love, purity, enchantment, and magic. They also appear in many movies and cartoons as magical creatures. Both adults and children find a fascination with unicorns. They also continue to find their way into fantasy novels alongside other mythical creatures.

 

 

 

WHAT TO DO ON #NationalUnicornDay

There are several ways to celebrate this fun day.

 

Try these fun ideas with some younger fans of unicorns: –

  • Make some brightly coloured unicorn-shaped pancakes or cupcakes.  Decorate them with multi-coloured sprinkles or glitter.
  • Bake chocolate cookies in the shape of unicorns.
  • Watch a favorite movie including unicorns.
  • Draw a picture of a unicorn or write a story about one.
  • Read your favourite fantasy novel featuring unicorns.

 

Thanks to National Calendar who have also created a colouring page and a picture puzzle.
