Work With Us
Muncaster Castle is one of The Lake District’s most important heritage visitor attractions. Our stunning site includes an impressive castle with centuries of history, plus the associated stables, courtyards and walled gardens, all set in over 70 acres of beautiful gardens and wider estate, with breathtaking views over some of the most famous and picturesque Lake District Fells.
We are home to an important and renowned Hawk and Owl Centre, and many popular seasonal festivals and events. We have been welcoming daily visitors to Muncaster since 1968, and currently host over 60,000 visitors a year, with an ambition to significantly grow this number.
Muncaster has been the home of the Pennington family for an astonishing 800 years, and the family still live in part of the castle, with hands on involvement in the delivery of our visitor offer. Muncaster is very much a family business, including the whole team.
We are currently undergoing a transition from one generation of leadership to another, and alongside this change, we are embarking upon a significant development and growth plan to create a genuine step change for our much loved historic visitor attraction, to establish it as the best within the sector and a priceless gem in the Lake District’s crown.
To help us realise our exciting five-year vision, we are looking for a number of important new team members, in some of the most exciting posts we have ever advertised.
Reporting to, and working alongside Ewan Frost-Pennington as General Manager, the new team members will have a unique chance to help shape the vision of such an important site, lead on many of the new developments and develop the fantastic Muncaster team. This is chance to get in on the ground floor and play an important role in a very exciting part of our 800 year old history.
We believe some of these role present the opportunity of a lifetime, and definitely the opportunity to make a fantastic lifestyle choice.
We will be adding lots of seasonal jobs in the next few weeks so keep checking back.
Please look through our current opportunities and hopefully you will find a role that grabs your attention and your imagination.
