Or Just Work When You Can

 We’re currently looking at building a ‘bank’ of occasional workers, to work at Keswick, in The Lake district.

This is to help us during busy times (ie Duncan Booth’s 10in10 event, our Beer and Music Festival, our Fireworks Night; the busy summer season; as well as help cover staff leave etc). So you must be over 18 years old.  (See below, if you’re younger)

Or maybe you’d prefer to do 1 shift per week? Could be a 4 hour shift, or a 7 hour shift.

Join Our ‘Young uns’ Team

Might you be accused of being a ‘teenager liggin about the house’?

Do you have a taxi of mum or dad who can bring you to The Swinside Inn and come back for you a few hours later?


Maybe once a week? Or even once a fortnight.

Let us give you money!


Ben and Sharon like to keep a small team of younger staff, starting them on easier work, and gradually building their confidence over the years.  Some start at 13, and stay until University.
