Leanne Starts at RSE
After leaving college with a secretarial diploma hoping to be a legal secretary – and being too vertically challenged to be an air hostess – Leanne began her working life as an office temp. She was soon placed into a permanent role by a recruitment agency at Barclays Commercial Services in Hastings. This was the beginning of a long and fruitful career at Barclays and she worked in many departments throughout her 14 years here, making many friends along the way. In 2003, the company began outsourcing and hence redundancy ensued. Embracing the change, Leanne commuted to London for some time working for a large surfware clothing brand in their Head Office. However, she was soon missing the beaches back home and began her career in recruitment in Sussex working with Mandy Brook our MD. She later spent 3 years working as a very successful Recruitment Consultant in the Aerospace and Defence industry, account managing the recruitment for a very large nuclear submarine manufacturer, and helped the agency win many industry awards. For the past 2 years, Leanne spent time in the Welfare to Work industry, effectively assisting people with disabilities, health issues and other long term unemployment barriers with their personal return to work journey.
In her spare time, Leanne can be found tap dancing! This she has loved since the age of 4 and has taken part in many dance competitions, shows (including a London production) and local pantomimes. This explains her need for “singing” in the office!
When she’s not dancing she’s either grooming her 2 Birman rescue cats, walking along the beach – preferably in the Caribbean – wakeboarding, or shouting and clapping loudly as she supports her partner during his triathlon competitions!
Leanne is absolutely delighted to be working once again with Mandy and the team at Recruitment South East and looks forward to the challenges ahead.
