Rose Heppell joins the team having spent two years working in recruitment for non-finance positions, such as administration, HR and marketing, which she will continue to do in her new role as commercial consultant.

Rose said: “I’m really excited to be joining the team. Astute does great work for local businesses, which is what attracted me to the company in the first place.

“This is a brand new area for Astute too, so I’m looking forward to getting stuck in.”

Annie Adams and Guy Draper also join the team as consultants. Together they bring a total of more than 10 years’ experience with them and will be working with clients across the East Midlands.

Annie specialises in a range of financial positions including ledger clerks, bookkeepers and assistant accountants, while Guy’s experience lies predominantly within sourcing executive roles.

Mary Maguire, managing director said: “We’re thrilled to have Rose, Annie and Guy joining us. In the past we’ve always focused on recruiting for the financial sector, but with Rose on board we’re now in a position to expand the services we offer to our clients.

“All three are bringing some fantastic experience and knowledge with them, and we’re confident that they’ll be a great asset to the team.”

Astute Recruitment is a multi-award winning accountancy recruitment agency offering bespoke solutions to clients and helping candidates to find suitable positions in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and North West Leicestershire.
