Job Prospects in Canterbury

Canterbury Cathedral

The cathedral city of Canterbury links up with Whitstable and Herne Bay to the north to form the local government district which is home to more than 150,000 people. While major employs exist - not least the local and county council - the medium-sized business is the major source of employment in this area. And with more than one million tourists visiting the cathedral and World Heritage Site each year, that too provides plenty of jobs for the region.

Canterbury Essential Jobseeker Information

Industries

Retail, finance and small-scale manufacturing are the main sectors providing employment. The likes of Besco Industrials can be found at John Wilson business park in Whitstable - just one of a number of business parks in the Whitstable and Herne Bay area. And at the newly-opened Lakesview Enterprise Centre in Canterbury can be found companies such as Blighline Refrigeration and Claremont & May fragrance products.

The Church

It's easy to overlook the church as an industry and potential employer but, on one level, that is precisely what it is. Most people feel a 'calling' to work for the church rather than sit down with a careers master but those with faith may like to think more seriously about it as a career path. Although there's no formal career path, most will start with ordination, which is the church recognising you as a person prepared to work for the church. The next stage is to become a deacon and, usually about a year after that, become a priest. Your role as a priest will involve the celebration of the sacraments (including baptism and holy communion), teaching, preaching and pastoral care.
