The Rochester and Strood MP Kelly Tolhurst has been appointed to the Whips office as Theresa May completed her reshuffle today.
Mrs Tolhurst who was elected in 2015 is one of several new female faces in the Whips office.
Her appointment means that all three Medway MPs now have jobs in the government.
MP for Gillingham Rehman Chishti has been appointed as vice chairman for communities at Conservative Central Office.
The MP said he was delighted to be joining a team whose job will be partly to boost the party membership and attract newcomers from more diverse backgrounds.
He will be working alongside the Maidstone and Weald MP Helen Grant.
Their role is seen as a sign that the party is aiming to tackle its dwindling membership.
He will also be part of a new team implementing the results of a party review into what went wrong at the polls last June.
As expected, the Chatham and Aylesford MP Tracey Crouch remains sports minister.
But there was to be no job for Tonbridge and Malling MP Tom Tugendhat despite speculation that he was in line for a junior post in government.
Meanwhile, the Tunbridge Wells MP Greg Clark has confounded predictions that he was heading for the exit door.
He will remain the business secretary - a job that the Prime Minister had wanted to hand to the health secretary Jeremy Hunt.
