Working at Folkestone & Hythe District Council

What we do

Folkestone & Hythe is a dynamic and innovative place to live, work and visit. 
We are a modern and forward thinking organisation with an ambitious and challenging agenda focused on making a positive difference to our communities and to those that live and work in the area.

Situated on Kent’s south east coast, the district is both rural and coastal in character. With an established arts and cultural hub and unrivalled regeneration, including the Garden Town Otterpool Park, the area is well connected, with London just under an hour away via the High Speed rail link and access to mainland Europe via the Channel Tunnel.

While our modern offices are in the heart of Folkestone, with easy access to transport links, local shops, entertainment facilities and the seafront, we have a flexible working culture that supports and encourages remote and agile working where possible. Recognised by Best Companies as an outstanding organisation to work for, we have a real focus on staff engagement, health & wellbeing and development, and offer a benefits package that includes corporate membership and reward schemes, an Employee Assistance Programme and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme.
