More than a great location

Tunbridge Wells is a great destination to live and work. A perfect blend of town and country.

In the town, there's bustling bars, revered restaurants, street markets, festivals and live events all-year round, including Jazz on the Pantiles, Local and Live, and Pub in the Park.

Yet, you're only a foxtrot away from stunning countryside, walks in the weald and the beautiful Garden of England.

Plus, it's just 50 minutes from London or Hastings, with direct train links to London Bridge, Waterloo, Charing Cross and Cannon Street.

I started here as a Business Administration Apprentice. I attended college once a week and I worked the remaining four days at the council carrying out general admin tasks such as filing, monitoring emails and answering queries. During this time I also undertook various training on things like Excel and minute taking.

I took part in one of the Council’s charity auction events and won a bid for a cricket lesson! I will now be joining the Council’s Cricket Team in the summer. I have also joined the LEO running club and run most weeks.

I’ve had lots of opportunity to develop my skills and experience with TWBC, which is one of the many great things about working here. I was lucky enough to go on a secondment as an MKIP Programme Manager; a partnership opportunity working across three different councils, which greatly improved my project management and business case development skills. The MKIP Programme Manager role was my launch pad for my successful appointment as Head of Policy and Governance.
