Welcome to Kent – a big, diverse and beautiful place to live and work, with lots of opportunities to make a difference every day to the people we work with, their families and carers .

With our partners in health and care across the county, we aim to enable people of all ages to lead the lives they want to , in a place they call home and give children the best start in life . We are building working relationships that people can trust, helping them to achieve the things that are most important to them and learning from the feedback we get. This is only achieved through co-production, focusing on people’s strengths and personal goals and with everyone playing their part.

We know how important it is to support our own people in their goals too, and you’ll find a caring, collaborative and innovative culture that gives you room to grow.

We employ more than 3,000 people in a variety of roles across the county, in social care teams, community-based services or business functions. No matter where our teams are located or which specialisms they may have, they work collaboratively to support each other and keep the person at the centre of what they do. Our teams are made up of people with a range of professional disciplines, each bringing a wealth of skills and experience.

We believe we have the foundations for effective and high-quality social care and we’re committed to continuous improvement – working with our partners in new and smarter ways to improve the lives of children, young people and adults in co-production with them.


If you’re ready to make a difference, come and visit our stand for a friendly conversation about you, your career goals and how we can help make those a reality. We can’t wait to meet you.
