    Fantastic environment to work in- Really supportive, opportunity for development, lovely people to work with. Genuinely feel valued member of the company and you can feel the 4C's culture being demonstrated daily. Good opportunity to progress within the company. I've progressed from Renewals & Claims representative, to a Team Leader and now Recruitment. Great Flexibility with the Hybrid contract allowing for a better work life balance. Have some fabulous benefits available for all colleagues.


    Although they are renovating the Bexhill office, areas are dated.
