Astute is the UK’s expert technical recruiter in the Power, Nuclear, Renewables, Waste and Water sectors. Specialising in the provision of professional technical staff across the UK into a range of businesses from small, start-up organisations to some of the country’s largest companies, this dynamic agency supports the full project life cycle of technical assets.
Managing Director Terry Buckel founded Astute in 2006. As an ex-power generation engineer, he wanted to build a technical recruitment business that separated itself from its competitors by offering a superior level of technical qualification and industry knowledge allowing them to more accurately match the right candidates to the right opportunities.
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!!
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.

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 don't feel that I can fill this in until the whole process has finished. But Kyle has been very helpful and supportive in finding and get to an interview stage. At the moment the whole job search thing has been very smooth. I would gladly use him again.
