Recruitment company makes astute move

Astute Recruitment, has just moved to new offices at Cardinal Square in Derby, taking a large suite on the ground floor.

The accountancy recruitment specialist, which set up in the last recession in 2009, believes Derby is well placed to weather the recent pandemic, with many companies it deals with still looking to grow their finance and accountancy teams.

Mary Maguire, director of Astute Recruitment said: “We clearly haven’t got a crystal ball, however from the snapshot of conversations we’ve had, companies are saying the furlough scheme has really helped them through. A lot of them are not just trading but are continuing to do well.

“For Astute it’s all about building relationships and throughout the pandemic we’ve been keeping in touch with clients and going that extra mile to help individuals and new companies out, even just listening to what’s happening in their world and any concerns to help them through what has been a difficult time.”

Mary continued: “We’re confident that these relationships will continue to flourish, and that the new offices will help us achieve the next stage in our plans for growth. The new offices are providing a polished and professional working environment for our team to thrive and continue to grow.”

A new consultant, Harry Langridge, is also welcomed to the offices, who will focus on permanent qualified accountancy roles across North Derbyshire and North Nottinghamshire.

Sarah Stevenson, Astute MD said: “We are delighted to appoint a new, experienced recruiter to our team. His appointment demonstrates our confidence in the future of our business.”

Astute Recruitment now have their entire team back working in their offices at Cardinal Square. The prominently positioned offices include other local Derby businesses including NHS Property Services, Freeths Solicitors, IT specialists Node 4, Bulkhead and IT Recruitment business, Xpertise.

David Dyas, asset manager at Cardinal Square said: “Astute are just the sort of occupiers we hoped to attract. They are a growing, established, people focussed company driven by two very successful local entrepreneurs. Mary and Sarah are straight talking, a pleasure to deal with, and I’m delighted that Cardinal Square has been chosen for the next phase of Astute’s growth!”
