Kent Engineering recruitment agency listing

Bordering Surrey, East Sussex and Greater London, the county of Kent is situated in the South East of England and is home to more than 1.7 million people. Home to the City of Canterbury, Kent is a thriving hub of industry and local recruitment agencies provide invaluable help to employers with Engineering vacancies, which are available on a permanent, contract and temporary basis.

Recruitment agencies are scattered throughout the county, in locations including Swale, Maidstone, Ashford, and Dartford amongst others. The vast majority will offer a multi-sector recruitment service, in which they will cover Technical and Engineering job roles. Specialist Engineering recruiters can also be found in Kent.

Economic overview and salaries

As with any sector, the salary for Engineering roles in Kent differs from job to job. That said, candidates looking to be hired for such positions will generally be employed in well-paid roles. Typically, an Electrical & Instrumentation Maintenance Technician commands a starting salary of £27,000. The start point for a Quantity Surveyor can be as high as £40,000, while Technical Directors could earn as much as £50,000.

Key industries and employers

One of the county's major employers is BAE Systems, which has a base at Rochester Airport, employing approximately 1,500 people. It is an encouraging presence for Engineering candidates, especially so considering the Defence firm spends over £10 billion a year and works with around 7,500 UK-based companies.

BAE Systems isn't the only major Engineering employer with a base in Kent. Located in Dover, P&O Ferries, has a track record of operating ferries from the UK to Ireland as well as many European countries. Its fleet of modern ships require maintenance and this can provide welcome recruitment opportunities for local Engineers.
