27,061 jobs available in Kent

Forming the geographical buffer zone between London to the northwest and continental Europe to the southeast, Kent has often found itself on the front line of conflicts. Most notably, it played host to the Battle of Britain during World War II, which, during the bombing period, earned it the nickname of Hell Fire Corner. The continent is incredibly close: on a clear day, one can stand on the iconic White Cliffs of Dover and see the French mainland.

Though coal mining and aircraft construction played large roles in Kent's industrial heritage, nowadays the southeasterly half of the county relies predominantly on tourism and agriculture. The self-styled "Garden of England" can often be seen plastered on large advertisements across London tube stations, inviting commuters to take a short trip southeast for their next break from the fast-paced city lifestyle.

Perhaps due to its calm beauty and temperate conditions, Kent has been home to a wealth of great literature going all the way back to Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century. Since then, the county has bred Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe, and novelists H. G. Wells, Joseph Conrad and Charles Dickens.
