For the people who live in Whitehaven and the surrounding areas there will be excellent opportunities for those who could become employed at the mine as well as those whose existing companies could benefit.

We are looking to create 518 jobs with the mine and are aiming for at least 80% of those vacancies to be filled by people from the local area. Ranging from employment for those with previous mining experience to school leavers looking for a first job, the mine will offer opportunities for long term employment as well as learning valuable and transferable skills.

You can find out more about the types of jobs available, above and below ground, here

If you would like to pre-register for a job, please complete a form and post or deliver it to our offices in either Cumbria or Haywards Heath. Download an application form here to get your name included in the database for alerts and updates.

We are creating a 50m public access green space, with a footpath to connect High Road to the coastal path, which will be planted with local trees and shrubs to encourage biodiversity and maintained by us to ensure it remains usable and attractive.

In addition to the existing Copeland Community Fund, we will be creating our own community fund to support local charities and organisations with projects that echo our desire to support health and wellbeing, local amenities such as footpaths and cycleways and, finally, sustaining Haig Pit Museum.

For people who visit the area for walking, climbing etc, the mine will provide an opportunity for visitors to see a thriving community and a business supporting local initiatives.
