WINDERMERE Lake Cruises’ annual summer jobs fair is coming soon to the Lake District.

The attraction is hopeful that local people will help to fill more than 100 vacancies from Easter onwards,

The recruitment event will be held on February 23 at Bowness Piers, Lake Road, between 12pm and 4pm.

Annually, staff numbers must be boosted to around 170 to help cope with its annual 1.63 million passenger journeys.

The attraction is actively encouraging people from all walks of life to apply for a role - even those who have no prior related experience and no matter how unusual their previous employment history may be.

HR Manager Ian Wilkinson said: “Working with Windermere Lake Cruises is so appealing to so many people from different walks of life.”
