The economy of the county is diverse: it is home to a number of industrial companies in the shipbuilding, cement, chemical and brick making sectors, to name but a few, and service industries such as health and education make up half of the county's employment.
While major employers such as Saga and Eurotunnel require everything from PAs to office managers, smaller firms also need administrative and secretarial staff to handle paperwork.
Full time and part time employment are both available, with permanent and temporary positions advertised by Kent's recruitment agencies.
Salaries & Qualifications
Secretaries and administrators can earn upwards of £15,000 per year, depending on experience, while hourly rates for data entry staff and entry level candidates start at around £7 per hour.
Prior qualifications are not normally required, but many companies will require candidates with fast typing speeds and high levels of organisation, as well as attention to detail. Recruitment agencies tend to offer the highest rates for administrative and secretarial staff, with specialised agencies also in existence to handle temporary roles in this sector.
