The cost of living must be very low in Eastbourne? That salary is a disgrace, shame on the school! [Disappointment.png]

I'm glad my BM won't get to see this job advert. I get paid that salary, but on a part time wage (25 hours) and no weekends! [Scared.png]

I can assure you that the cost of living anywhere in East Sussex. is among the highest in the country.

That was one of the reasons I had to leave Eastbourne, wages did no allow me to even think about a mortgage.

Ruined the beaches, ruined the Crumbles, ruined the town centre were other reasons too. [Neutral.png]

Doesn't surprise me all that much sadly. I live in one of the more expensive areas in the South East outside of London and a big academy (1800 pupils) down the road is advertising for a deputy site manager for £16300 a year. Of course they want someone highly qualified and experienced who must also be prepared to work the late shift (14:30-22:30). [Crazy.png]

I can vouch for that. 1000's of Londoners/Essex people mainly move down here thinking it would be nice to live by the seaside, just like it was when they were on holiday. But they don't see the full picture on holiday or a day trip. When they get here, there are only a few seasonal jobs, extremely low wages (long hours) yet the cost of accommodation/housing is the highest in the country as is the cost of living here (food, drink, petrol etc).

They then turn to the state, want social housing. In my school, over 75% of pupils were entitled to free school meals. The other statistic I was told was that only 10% of people round here have to pay for prescriptions.

Honestly, East Sussex is not the place to move to unless you have made a fortune in the city and then you would only choose to live in the few very select villages/towns which have a reputation for large detached houses occupied solely by retired millionaires. I often take a drive to a town close to me and dream... that's all it will be, dreams. One house I have my eye on has a large in and out gravel drive with a large fountain out by the front door next to manicured flower beds. Arhhhhh..... [Big grin.png]

a bit like this one but bigger…

ESCC tend to always advertise at Caretaker 3. Yes the cost of living is high down here, very little first time buyer properties. For the price of a one bedroom flat, you could get a 3/4 bed detatched house up north. Know the head of the school well. 6 form entry school, and as said, one of the biggest in East Sussex.
