Red Sector Recruitment
22nd June 2021
A life changing moment in Sonny Cooper-Sutton’s career arrived in August 2017. He decided to leave his job in London, stop commuting and set up his own recruitment business in Suffolk. He also got married just 15 days before starting the new business, and now has three children!
Red Sector Recruitment was a totally new venture with Sonny’s wife, Yasmin. Now one of the fastest growing recruitment agencies in the UK, it has more than 15 consultants with over 50 years’ combined experience primarily in social care, nursing, veterinary and care work across the UK.
The move to larger offices at Masterlord Office Village was a step change in diversifying and developing the business. Specialist consultants in each market sector allow Red Sector to offer unique expertise for recruitment.
There’s a positive, collaborative feel to Red Sector’s smart open-plan offices on Delta Terrace, where team members enjoy the supportive environment – and the banter. They all headed off to Miami a couple of years ago on an annual trip in recognition of their achievements.
“We work hard for everyone, whether it’s an employer or an individual looking to develop their career. Long-term relationships are the key to our success, built on a solid reputation, transparency and honesty. Masterlord gives us room for expansion in a great business community, with everything on the doorstep.”

As a family-run business, diversification and controlled growth are the other elements in Red Sector’s success, recently expanding into criminal justice to provide probation officers and substance misuse specialists. The company provides NHS and private nurses and mental health practitioners, social care, even vets heading to Australia.
Red Sector, as an ‘off-contract’ agency, is regularly called in when resources are over-stretched and additional support is needed at short notice. As with most businesses, the pandemic proved challenging, but remote working and out-of-hours access for clients and candidates saw them through. The team are now back in the office and working flat-out to cope with demand.
