Blended Working

For some of our roles, we are moving towards a blended working approach, which combines home-working and some time at our bases within the Lake District National Park and our headquarters in Kendal, Cumbria.

Recruiting from outside the UK

It is very unlikely that we will be able to sponsor candidates from outside the UK (due to the costs involved and as we are a small organisation so would be under resourced to manage the process) and the final decision will rest with the hiring manager.
