Kent, in the southeast of England and just outside London, is a varied county with large and small towns, rural areas and stretches of coast. It is also one of the UK's largest and most densely populated counties. As such, it offers a good range of employment opportunities in a number of sectors. It is popular with commuters travelling into London, and house prices are relatively high compared with the country as a whole. Kent remains a more economical place to live than London, however, and there are regions where prices are lower.

Kent Job Opportunities

Employment opportunities in Kent are as varied as the landscape. Thanks to the county's transportation links with London, and to continental Europe by sea and rail, imports, exports and freight are major sectors, offering operations and logistics jobs in Kent. Several major players in the building and construction industry are based in Kent, operating within the county and beyond. The Bluewater shopping centre and large towns such as Ashford and Maidstone offer opportunities in the retail industry. The University of Kent offers academic and support roles. Tourism is also an important sector, with two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as the cathedral city of Canterbury and the White Cliffs of Dover being attractions to the county. A number of national and local charities offer work in the voluntary sector. Factories produce building materials and other goods, providing manufacturing jobs in Kent. In the countryside, farms still offer seasonal work picking fruit.

Kent Employment Trends

Traditionally, Kent is referred to as the Garden of England, thanks to its production of fruit, including apples and cherries, and of hops, important to the brewing industry. Today, while farming is still an important part of the county's economy, the county is increasingly industrial rather than agricultural. Some of the fastest growing sectors in Kent include construction, transport and logistics, and recruitment. Businesses moving out of London in search of lower rents and more space provide jobs in the digital, technical and research sectors, among others.
