We are so pleased and proud to announce that our boss, Mandy Brook, won the Sussex Businesswoman of the Year last Friday at a gala dinner in Eastbourne. While recovering from the surprise the next morning Mandy wrote: “I am still in shock quite frankly about winning last night!! So many fab women who deserved to win as much as I did! Truly humbled & grateful for all your amazingly kind words”.

Mandy launched Recruitment South East over 4 years ago from a standing start, and now leads an 11-strong recruitment team who have established a strong reputation, not only across the South East, but also nationwide and internationally. Mandy adds, “2015 has been a stunning year so far. We’ve strengthened and expanded our footprint by opening Recruitment South West and Recruitment North, having launched RSE Worldwide last year. This year the team has also doubled in size; we’ve gained our Gangmasters Licence; we’ve invested in a new software management system, and we’re going through a major rebrand – as well as personally becoming a corporate director of the Recruitment Employment Confederation & regularly speaking on the BBC & radio on best practice within the employment arena. This award has been the icing on the cake and reassures me that all the hard work has been worth it. It’s so nice to be recognised by my peers and friends”.
