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!!!

I have worked as a candidate for Astute and they have been excellent. Super friendly service and professional agents keen to fit the right person to the right job. It has been a pleasure dealing with them and I would happily work for them again in the future. Highly recommend this agency.

Last week I had the opportunity to meet a pretty amazing individual (though he would be the last person to acknowledge this!). Successful businessman, David Ryley, had an idea for a great new charity in 2015 called the 1% Matters Fund.

It provides small grants to local community projects who are helping young people, the elderly, those with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, vulnerable people or those suffering mental health issues. This type of organisation really appeals to me as it works in a philanthropic way for businesses and individuals to ‘give back’ to those less fortunate in a really constructive and practical way that really makes a difference. I will be posting an article covering mental health in the work place soon so this type of charity really strikes a chord with me.

David Ryley, Chief Executive Officer of successful local business, Ryley Wealth Management (a St. James’s Place Partner Practice) decided to start a fund with 1% of his profits to support local charities in Nottingham. A second business leader, Mark Goldby, CEO of SMS Electronics Ltd, quickly saw the potential and was the first to offer his support. David Ryley created a charitable fund with the aim of growing it to build a permanent legacy for the people of Nottingham.

As government and council grants to local charities are facing constant pressure, the team at 1% Matters want to do all they can to help.
