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!!!

Astute Recruitment Ltd's team aim to raise much needed funds for #movember2021, raising awareness of men's mental health

This is the second year all of us at Astute Recruitment Ltd wanted to support #Movember.

Aiming to highlight awareness of men’s mental health but also raise much needed funds for a terrific cause.

All of us may not be lucky enough to have all our brothers, fathers, uncles and nephews around, but most of us will – thankfully!

Sadly, too many of us will know the heartbreak of losing loved ones – whether through mental or physical illness.

It hurts – a lot.

Movember, while a fun, annual event, aims to raise the profile of mental health harms on men. Whatever their age, status, career or salary, men – young and old – can suffer from mental health at any point in their life.

So this year, Harry Langridge, Tom Norton, Josh Dunn and Matt Morgan are all taking part in a very special #movember2021! So far the running total raised is a brilliant £605! With only a few days left, we are all hoping we can raise a bit more for such a brilliant cause!

To honour the 60 men who are lost every single hour of every single day across the world through suicide, they are undertaking to ‘travel’ all the way from Calais to our Head Office in Derby, via the English Channel, Dover and Nottingham!


Throughout November, they are each aiming to swim , run and cycle every day- come rain, hail or probably ice (its getting colder out there!).


Globally, one man takes his own life every minute, of every day. This Movember, Harry, Josh, Matt and Tom are moving for them.


They are each aiming to [walk/run, Cycle and Swim] 60 kms over the course of Movember.


The men who should still be here today.


Going the distance and Moving every day has been very tough. All those dark winter mornings in the pool or on the bike/ road, but your donations will help keep them going.


Not only that, but you will be helping to fund ground-breaking projects in mental health and suicide prevention. Like Making Connections – a Movember-funded initiative that puts mental health help into the hands of at-risk groups – such as men of colour, military members, veterans, and their families.

It’s projects like these that can help them reduce the 3 out of 4 suicides that are men.


Donating is easy! Just click on the link below to take you to our team’s Mo Space!



Once you’re there, you’ll also be able to track their progress as they swim/ run and cycle towards their distance goal!


We’ve been sharing updates on our team page too!



Did you know?

Suicide is largely preventable, however, shockingly, around the world we lose 60 men to suicide every hour of every day. These are our fathers, brothers, sons, uncles and friends.


Some heart-breaking statistics & links are below: –

Extra ways YOU can support #movember2021!



Patchy, lopsided, itchy or epic – whatever Mo you grow this Movember, your face will raise funds and awareness for men’s health.


Commit to running or walking 60km over the month, at your own pace. That’s 60km for the 60 men we lose to suicide each hour, every hour across the world.


Rally a crew and do something fun and easy. Hosting is all about having a good time for a good cause.


Create your own challenge – it can be anything. A gruelling test of physical endurance or a not-so-sweaty pledge to kick a bad habit. Your epic efforts will help change the face of men’s health.

£605 raised so far for movember2021 by our team at Astute Recruitment Ltd




Astute Recruitment Ltd celebrate the men in our lives this International Men's Day 2021

Happy International Men’s Day to all the men in our lives including our team of wonderful blokes who have raised £585 so far on their #Movember2021 charity challenge!


November 19th is an annual celebration for the positive value men give to the world, their families and wider communities.


The day serves to recognise positive role models for men and importantly raise awareness of men’s wellbeing. One of the key aims of International Men’s Day is to promote gender equality for men AND women, but also to improve gender relationships too.


Lets celebrate this year’s theme for 2021 – “Better relations between men and women”.  You can check out more information about International Men’s Day on https://internationalmensday.com/this website is sponsored by Dads4Kids Fatherhood Foundation.

Set up in 2002, the organisation aims to “turn the tide of fatherlessness and to empower and encourage fathers around the world.  The mission of the Fatherhood Foundation is to improve the well-being of children by increasing the proportion of children growing up with engaged, caring committed and loving fathers.


Dads for kids works with the founder of International Men’s Day, Dr Jerome Teelucksingh, but also supports and works with fatherhood groups around the world. They provide united efforts to celebrate manhood and the positive contributions men make to society.


Here at Astute we have several men – from fathers, sons, uncles and brothers.


So happy International Men’s Day to all of you!


Several of the above deserve an extra special thank you as all through November they have been getting up at the crack of dawn to swim, cycle and run to raise money for their Movember2021 charity fundraising challenge.


They have hit over £600 and you can view our #Movember2021 fundraising page on the link below and make a donation!

All money raised will be going to help support men’s mental health.
