We are looking to create around 500 direct jobs at the mine and are aiming for 80% of these vacancies to be filled by people from the local area.
There will be positions available above and below ground, with varied roles available for those with relevant previous experience, people looking to retrain and for school-leavers who are looking to start their career through our apprenticeship scheme.
Pre-registration for future vacancies closed on 31 March 2017 and currently, we are not accepting additional applications at this time.
There will be a further opportunity to register for employment towards the end of 2018 and this will be announced on our website and through our social media channels.
West Cumbria Mining is aiming to be an employer of choice; attracting and retaining the best people. Employees working at the Cumbrian Metallurgical Coal Project will receive a competitive benefits package. We fully support gender equality in all roles, underground and surface, as well as encouraging diversity within our workforce.
