Housekeeping Team at Tower Wood Outdoor Centre 

A unique opportunity has arisen to work alongside the team at Tower Wood Outdoor Centre in Windermere. 

The Centre is managed by Lancashire County Council and has a dedicated housekeeping team who ensure that the facilities are cleaned to the highest standard enabling  all guests to have a safe and enjoyable experience throughout their stay. Never before has the cleanliness and hygiene of the site been more important as we work to ensure our facilities are cleaned to the highest standard to combat the spread of Covid.

Tower Wood Outdoor Education Centre offers guests the use of the centre for day visits or overnight stays and includes an on-site boathouse so there are lots of different cleaning skills and techniques required and full training will be given.  The Centre is expanding, and guests will soon be able to enjoy a range of activities 7 days per week, so we need to increase our housekeeping team. 

If you want to be part of this important team at Tower Wood, we would love to hear from you.  There are multiple opportunities available with different working hours 
Monday to Friday and during the height of the outdoor activities season there are some opportunities to work weekend hours too.

As an employee of Lancashire County Council, we can offer you a competitive rate of pay at £9.50 per hour.  In addition to this you will enjoy an annual leave entitlement of 25 days paid leave increasing to 31 days after 5 years service (leave is pro rata to hours of contract), and you can also benefit from joining the Local Government pension scheme.
