Working with us at Lakeland Arts

Welcome to our recruitment section. By visiting this page you are indicating you are already interested in us which is great!

Rather than tell you about us (you can find that in other areas of our website) I will say what a fabulous time to be thinking of joining us.

Please scroll down for current vacancies. 

At a time when we are almost ready to grow significantly by opening Windermere Jetty (opens Saturday 23 March 2019) as a world-class visitor attraction in a World Heritage Site, it is really important we recruit people with a passion and enthusiasm for what we do and what we want to achieve.

At Lakeland Arts, we come from all walks of life and backgrounds but we have one thing in common: connecting people with outstanding art and heritage in our breath-taking world-class cultural landscape.

More than this, you can expect to work in some of the most beautiful buildings, venues and locations throughout the county and you can expect to feel a real sense of pride in the job you do, every single day.

We have all sorts of roles available, if not now, as we move closer to opening Windermere Jetty so do click through and take a look and find out about all the exciting opportunities we have to offer and get involved.

Please remember our team are here to help. If you'd like to know more about working with us, or you'd like information about a specific job, feel free to email us at

I look forward to welcoming you to Lakeland Arts. 

Rhian Harris
