Nominations invited for Boss of the Year in Sussex
The search is on for the best boss in Sussex.
The judges of the Sussex Business Awards are calling on the county’s employees to nominate those bosses who they feel create a great place to work.
Last year’s winner was Cate Searle of Martin Searle Solicitors.
Ms Searle is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s most-respected lawyers, specialising in community care law as a partner in Martin Searle solicitors, which has offices in Brighton and Croydon.
Her staff described her as a “tenacious and successful businesswoman, but also a dedicated mother and friend”.
She said: “Winning the Boss of the Year Award in 2012 was a real honour.
“Although I had been reluctant for my colleagues to enter me for this award as I don't feel comfortable in the limelight, it was lovely to be recognised for my work within the firm.
“My co-director Fiona and I believe in walking the walk and not just talking the talk.
“As our employment department works with local firms to ensure they are best practice employers, it was great to be recognised for the fact that we follow our own advice and support our employees in terms of their personal and professional development.
“If anyone out there has a boss they think should win this award, they should definitely nominate them.
“The Sussex Business Awards are well-respected and lots of fun.
“Winning this award has done much to enhance our local profile as a law firmwhich is a good employer.”
Sussex companies have until August 30 to submit their entries.
This year the awards will be presented at the Brighton Dome.
Guests will enjoy a champagne reception in the Brighton Museum and then a four course meal with entertainment in the Dome.
