About the Place

As the largest and most populated county in the UK, Kent has over 1.5 million residents and a workforce of more than 820,000 people, making the Garden of England the perfect place to live and work.

With great schools, vibrant cities, golden beaches and breath-taking countryside there is lots to offer you and with residential property considerably below London prices and investment in redevelopment, why not choose the best of both worlds by working in Kent?

Kent is a varied location from the coastal towns of Ramsgate and Folkestone and the areas of outstanding natural beauty in Sevenoaks & Tunbridge Wells, to the North Kent urban towns of Dartford and Gravesend. With its stunning landscapes, historic landmarks, multi-cultural communities and a rich heritage there is lots to love about Kent; less than an hour from St Pancras and 40 minutes from Lille, high-speed connections to the capital and continent make Kent an excellent location for work and leisure.

Please see the Kent County Council website for further information about the Council and the County of Kent.
