Advice is available for businesses in the Uckfield area from Business East Sussex which supports organisations wanting to grow by offering free access to a wide range of services.
Those services include signposting and guidance for apprenticeships, training, access to finance, development grants, start up loans, relocation advice and consultancy and mentoring.
Access is free of charge but some on-going services may be chargeable or match-funded.
Chris Dowling, the owner of Uckfield-based Dowling Consultants, is working with Business East Sussex as a brand ambassador to promote its services in Uckfield and other Wealden towns.
He says businesses in all sectors of the economy, from manufacturers to professional services and from retailers to farmers can be helped. The service is available to businesses of all sizes – start-ups and established businesses which want to grow.
Chris, who has more than 35 years business experience, says the role of brand ambassador ties in well with the work he does as a business consultant and mentor, focussing on small and family businesses.
He has many business contacts across East Sussex and is a keen networker which helps with spreading news about Business East Sussex services.
