Brook brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the recruitment sector having worked in numerous senior management roles before joining Smart. His knowledge of operations enables our recruitment team to deliver the highest level of expertise for our clients and also provides us with the ability to offer continuous and innovative solutions to the challenges in the industry.
The appointment of Brook Watson coincides with the innovative strategy that exists within Smart Solutions, this extends to the roll out of our ‘Pop up Strategy’.
