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.

Now is our final warning, To avoid 6 degrees of warming. Not COP 27 or 28, Or it will simply be too late...

Sustainability, and the environment are really important to all of us at Astute Recruitment Ltd. We already have a sustainable environmental policy.

We already encourage a number of environmentally positive initiatives, but will be announcing a new one that our clients, candidates and team can all take part in soon!

With Glasgow’s current global climate conference, ‘COP 26’, underway, here’s a simple wish from all of us in the meantime: –




Now is our final warning
To avoid 6 degrees of warming
For those in power
Now is our critical hour

Not COP 27 OR 28,
Or it will simply be too late.

Right now we have to act –
Nations must agree, form a proper pact.
Not just empty words, but actions.
Clear plans, timelines ‐ no more distractions!

20 years ago, glaciers in the Himalayas,
Stood proud, 100’s of feet higher.
Coral in the Great Barrier Reef,
Weren’t bleached beyond belief.

From Attenborough to the Pope,
Their call to action really is humanity’s final hope

For our children and all of us living now,
How can we possibly allow,
The destruction of our beautiful blue pearl?
Allow uncontrolled distress to unfurl!

From heatwave to fire,
1000 year flooding and tides getting higher,

Let’s agree to make this November
A real turning point our ancestors will remember
For scientists and folk all-over the globe
This really is our final hope.

But, let’s not succumb to morbid doom,
Instead lets strive for ingenuity to bloom!
From Tim Berners-Lee to Archimedes –

We can be a brilliant species!

Lets innovate and work together,

To make our planet healthy again, and make all our lives better!
