Workforce Costs

Over the last 15 years, Ashford’s population has grown the fastest of all Kent districts increasing by +22.6%.

Rapid ongoing growth and investment has turned Ashford into one of the UK’s most prosperous areas with new businesses, leisure opportunities, retail developments, first-class transport links and quality new housing. 

The labour market in Ashford is strong, with a high proportion of workers being highly skilled, but as it is located a sufficient distance away from London, the cost of employing a skilled workforce is relatively low - particularly compared to the city.
