This one is pretty newbie friendly - not too big, but big enough (1000+ ??) was fairly well organised last year, nice goodie bag!  Bike is on open but quiet roads and run is off road. I'll be doing it again this year

where in the SE are you - it's a big place y'know 

and what distance are you looking for??  

there are lots of good novice events around - it all depends on what you want

take a look at Bewl Triathlon on 11th August - Bewl Reservoir south of Tunbridge Wells.   has sprint and standard distance

or Owler in Ashford, Kent on 4th August - is mainly aimed at 1/2IM distance but has a sprint alongside -

if you fancy a sea swim, try Bexhill on 18th August - - same team that organise Bewl

or for wider afield take a look on the Triathlon England site -

Ever so slightly further afield the ones humanrace organise at Dorney are very novice-friendly, if a little on the expensive side.

Hever is a well organised and really friendly one with sprint, oly and half at end of September.

Swanley is really low key but fun, missed it this year but usually early June.

Sevenoaks in April is another good sprint.
