Job Applicant Privacy Notice

As part of any recruitment process, the Authority collects and processes personal data relating to job applicants. The Authority is committed to being transparent about how it collects and uses that data and to meeting its data protection obligations.

Our Job Applicant Privacy Notice sets out the data we collect about you, how we collect your personal data, the purposes for which we use your data, details of organisations to whom we may send your data, how we keep your data safe, what you can do with your data and how you can exercise your privacy rights.

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.
