If you are looking for a great place to work locally, you could do a lot worse than Specsavers Eastbourne.

That is because the store, at 8B Arndale Centre, Terminus Road, has recently been accredited as a Platinum Employer.

Externally validated

The accreditation, externally validated by respected HR specialists Korn Ferry Hay Group, checks that high standards are being met across a number of aspects of people management.

These include talent management, reward, training and development, performance management, employee engagement, and recruitment and selection.

Best possible experience

Martin East, store director in Eastbourne, said: ‘We have always taken pride in the fact that our staff enjoy working for us, as that means our customers have the best possible experience with us too.

‘But to have been independently verified as a great place to work means a lot to all of us. It reflects a lot of hard work by everyone at Specsavers Eastbourne, and I would like to thank the whole team for everything they do.’
