Assistant Buyer Jobs in East Sussex
Bordered by Kent, Surrey and West Sussex, East Sussex is a ceremonial county in the south-east that is situated on the English Channel. It comprises communities like Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove, Hastings and Newhaven, and offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking Assistant Buyer jobs.
In the 5th century, the South Saxons settled in the region that would later become known as Sussex, although archaeological evidence suggests that humans and their ancient predecessors may have been living in the region for more than 400,000 years.
During the 16th and early 17th centuries, glass making was an important part of the East Sussex economy, although this mainly died out in the 1600s as competition with the East Midlands took over.
These days, East Sussex is a popular tourist destination and much of its economy is based in the service sector and retail.
Brighton is home to a number of financial services companies, including the European headquarters of American Express. Other companies include the Body Shop, and various media and tech companies have moved to the area since the 1990s.
What's more, East Sussex also comprises two important port towns. Newhaven is used mainly by ferry companies that travel between France and England, such as LD Lines and Transmanche Ferries. Meanwhile, Rye is predominantly used for fishing and yachting.
