Careers for exceptional people

Our guests often tell us it is our friendly and attentive staff that makes Sawrey House Hotel really stand out from the crowd, providing a quality of customer service that makes them feel welcome and special. We are very proud of our wonderful staff and aim to do all we can to develop them.

We can train someone how to carry out certain tasks, but nobody can change a person’s essential personality. So it is important to us that we recruit people who have a friendly approach, a ‘can do’ attitude and a genuine passion for excellence.

If you have these natural qualities and would like to work for us, we would like to hear from you. We aim to be one of the leading, family run small hotels in the Lake District and our continued success depends on our beautiful hotel being staffed by talented people who share our vision.
