Canterbury Overview

Despite its small size relative to other English cities, Canterbury has a good economic profile, and is repeatedly one of the most visited cities in the United Kingdom in terms of tourism. It also has a bustling student population, thanks to several educational institutions. That helps create a youthful atmosphere that appeals to people who have jobs in Canterbury and live there full-time, or are just short-term visitors. The cost of living in Canterbury is about average compared to other cities in the United Kingdom. Whether you are looking for a job in Canterbury as someone pursuing an educational programme, or a person with decades of specialty qualifications, you may find your next employer in Canterbury.

Canterbury Job Opportunities

Nearly three-quarters of Canterbury's adult population are active in the workforce, which is slightly lower than actively employed people throughout Great Britain overall. There are many pubs, restaurants, and nightlife establishments in the city, so if you have food service experience or understand what it's like to work in customer-facing roles, you may find work in a busy establishment that caters to both students and residents alike. Over one million people visit the Canterbury Cathedral every year, making the city popular with people from religious backgrounds. For that reason and others, jobs in Canterbury also exist in tourism.

Canterbury Employment Trends

The unemployment rate in Canterbury is only 1.3 percent, which is below the national average in the United Kingdom. Because the rate is declining over time, that suggests the economy in Canterbury is strong, and the labour market is appealing for jobseekers of various skill levels. The downward unemployment rate trend is also consistent across other towns in the region, which is good news for people who live in Canterbury, but may travel to nearby areas to work.
