West Malling is a market town in Kent, south-east England, with a population of around 2,200. Located close to the M20, this is still a largely unspoiled location - belying its close proximity to the capital. West Malling is known for its array of independent shops, as well as St. Leonard's Tower - a 10th century Norman keep. In 2015 the town gained prominence in the national press for reportedly having more active daters per capita than any other settlement in the UK.
Given the small size of the town itself, recruitment agencies in the West Malling area are somewhat scattered, rather than being limited to any one particular area.

Agencies cover the full spectrum of recruiting operations - from temporary or contract positions to permanent appointments, so no matter what you are looking for, a recruitment professional will be able to help.
The area surrounding West Malling is largely rural (70% of the Tonbridge and Malling district is designated as green belt), meaning that the local economy is relatively small. Given the town's proximity to London however, West Malling remains popular with commuters - meaning that the area does not suffer from many of the problems commonly associated with rural communities in contemporary Britain.
