Exciting town centre and waterfront regeneration schemes, with new retail and leisure developments will keep you busy not only at work but also in your leisure time!
The Dover district offers a great lifestyle choice, combining idyllic countryside with rural hamlets and villages, and a world-famous coastline dominated by the White Cliffs of Dover. As the closest town in the UK to France, living in the Dover District also provides the opportunity for regular hops across the Channel to experience French lifestyle too!
The Dover District features some of the most vibrant seaside communities in the south east, including the bustling Port of Dover with its ferries and cruise ships, cosmopolitan Deal, and the medieval splendour of Sandwich.
Alongside its stunning coastal and natural beauty, Dover is one of the most historic areas of the UK. There are no less than 50 scheduled ancient monuments; 2,800 listed buildings; 57 conservation areas; and 9 historic parks and gardens.
Dover is an exciting and diverse place to work. Major regeneration opportunities and projects are ongoing within the District, the success of which you could contribute to.
