This position will take you into the affluent and quaint town of Uckfield, known for its rich culture and village feel.

The store has been described as a stimulating working environment, and the directors have been there for around 4 years and have made it the bustling and successful store it is today with the unwavering help of their energetic team. As most of the patients are private, there is a distinct family feel in the store. The staff in the store describe themselves as spirited and friendly, and in this lively store there is never a dull moment. The store is not pushy on KPIs and sales, and has won regional awards for customer service as this is what is of the utmost importance to them. They are looking for an individual that can fit well into the team and offer that same level of customer care. The store is also scheduled to have two new test rooms built in 2016 with top of the range equipment installed to make your testing experience that much better!

The town has good connections to London, just over an hour by train, and is a mere 30 minute drive from the coast and 30 minutes from the vibrant town of Brighton. This really is the perfect location for that perfectly balanced country lifestyle. The directors are happy to consider relocation packages for the right person and would be happy to advise you on the relocating process. The housing market is very reasonable in the area and there are a number of great schools nearby. The town is well known for its Art and Culture with annual festivals and carnivals hosted by local people.
