DEAL & Sandwich aim Javelin at jobs target

The District won the county gold medal last month as official figures reveal it achieved the largest decrease in unemployment.

The number of people claiming jobseeker's allowance (JSA) in the district fell by almost 80 from April to May, Mill Hill in DEAL saw the greatest fall of JSA claimants with 21 people back in work.

However Dover District still has a higher unemployment rate than the national average, with 4.2 per cent of the district's population out of work compared to around three per cent in the UK as a whole.

This latest cautiously optimistic news follows the recent announcements from Southeastern that it will increase the number of highspeed trains serving DEAL and Sandwich with an additional morning service stopping at DEAL at 07.26 (arriving at St Pancras 08.49) and a late night service from St Pancras (departing 23.12). These two additional trains will run as commercial services outside the existing Kent County Council subsidy agreement to cope with the increasing passenger demand from DEAL.

You may find that your employer pays for your season ticket or they will loan you the money for your season ticket and allow it to be paid back via salary sacrifice.

St Pancras International is set at the heart of Central London with more underground connections than any other London station.
