West Cumbria Mining is aiming to be an employer of choice; attracting and retaining the best people. Employees working at Woodhouse Colliery 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.

Around 500 direct jobs will be created at the mine. We are aiming for 80 percent of these vacancies to be filled by people from the local area.

There will be positions available both above and below ground, with roles available for those with previous relevant mining experience, people looking to retrain and school-leavers who are looking to start their career through our apprenticeship scheme.

In March 2017, we closed our initial pre-registration for employment process.

Now that we have received a positive planning outcome, whilst priority for job opportunities will be given to those people who are already registered on our database, we are in the process of finalising our recruitment needs and future job opportunities and plan to launch our recruitment campaign during the second half of 2019. This will also include the opportunity for additional people to register their interest in working with us. Further details will be announced on our website and through our social media channels nearer the time.
