Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and recognised my CV as a perfect fit for the role I applied for. Honest, if he didn’t know the right answer he will say so, took interest in my interview feedback and you can tell he is interested and wants me to be successful in my career search!!

Liam S. | EC&I Technician 5.0

Liam recommends Arjun to others

Arjun was a great help from the start. He contacted me when I first submitted my application to gain a better understanding of what I was looking for professionally and personally. At any change of circumstance (offer of interview, interview feedback, offer of employment etc) Arjun contacted me straight away and kept me updated with what information he had received. He even sent me information on the business and what they do for help with my interview. He knew everything about the position of both myself and the employer all the way through the recruiting process.

Although still within the interview/ selection process, Cherie to date, has maintained continued and much needed communication, providing advice as and when required, always professional and motivational. A true asset to the Astute business.

Miguel S. | Shift Leader Customer Service Engineer 5.0

Miguel recommends Lauren to others  
7 months ago

Lauren was really helpful, bringing my attention to a role that was not directly connected to my previous working experience. Gave me good advice throughout the process and managed to get me a phone interview with the employer. Regardless of the outcome, I think Lauren did a great job and I can only thank for her commitment and thoroughness in providing me with a job opportunity.

I was impressed that he got back to tell me that the job was no longer available. Usually in these circumstances you just never hear back from the agency.
