Job Opportunities in Lancashire

We do like to be beside the seaside… and that’s exactly where The Midland hotel sits. Taking pride of place on the promenade, it’s an Art Deco gem with cocktail lounge, award-winning Sun Terrace Restaurant and loads of 1920s glamour and style.

Lancaster House hotel is proud of its Red Rose County heritage and most of all for its warm Lancashire welcome and locally sourced produce. The indoor and outdoor leisure facilities are just the icing on the cake.

English Lakes Job Benefits

Great Work Life Balance

Our English Lakes teams have lots of fun when they are not working, whether that’s taking part in a tug-of-war, hiking in the mountains, joining a Zumba class or going for a night out in town.


Join the Family

Over fifteen percent of our employees have been with the company for ten years or more – we think that says something. Emma Underwood has worked for English Lakes Hotels for fourteen years, and was appointed General Manager of Lancaster House in May 2022. She comments...

"Lancaster House is a great place to work! We are a family. Guests are always remarking about the way the team interacts and comment about the friendly camaraderie between us. My hope is that every team member will continue to feel value and have a good and positive work life balance".

Be Your Best Self

Our +1 Culture is all about going the extra mile for the guests and our colleagues. This is more than mere words. We have a +1 system that recognises the small acts of kindness happening daily in all the hotels. These are recognised, recorded and rewarded. Great service will get you noticed.

Professional Training & Development

Starting with our Expectations training course, we ensure that every new employee is properly welcomed into the company. Thereafter we will work with you to ensure you have the correct on-the-job training as well as supporting you through National Vocational qualifications in relevant subjects.


Get Healthy, Get Active

Excellent leisure facilities are a perk of the job! That includes gym, classes, swimming pool, saunas, hot tubs and Jacuzzis. You can also take to the lake with great discounts off water sports activities at Low Wood Bay Watersports Centre.


Get Creative

Suggest an innovative idea to transform the way we do business and you could become a +1 Imaginator. Every submission receives a response and, if appropriate, is taken forward, researched, and discussed by the relevant hotel team. When the green light is given, the new initiative is implemented. Successful team members are invited to an Awards lunch where they will receive a VIP treat at an English Lakes venue of their choice.


Go Big on Birthdays

How’s this for a birthday treat. Employees with partner receives the gift of dinner bed and breakfast at one of the hotels. Now, there’s a reason to celebrate!


Dine in Style

With some amazing Chefs and great options for dining, you will want to take advantage of the generous staff discounts that allow you to book a table alongside our residents and guests.


‘Thank You’ for Being You

After 12 months in the company, you will be invited to an annual three-course Awards lunch. This gives Simon Berry and the Directors an opportunity to thank you for your ongoing hard work and dedication. You will also be awarded with English Lakes vouchers which you can spend in any of our hotels and restaurants. 

Get the Latest +1 News

In order to keep in touch with what is going on around the group, we produce our regular online +1 Newsletter. This gives a round-up of hotel news, descriptions of the recent +1 activities, transfers and promotions, staff profiles, days out in the Lake District and Lancashire, as well as those all important celebrations such as births and marriages.
