Jobs in Cumbria UK
Cumbria is England’s third largest county, in the north west of the country and home of the Lake District, one of the UK’s favourite tourist destinations.
The county is largely rural and has Carlisle as its city, with Kendal, Barrow-in-Furness, Workington and Whitehaven as other large towns. Agriculture is an important part of the economy, though tourism is the mainstay of the economy, with jobs in hotels, catering, pubs and clubs.
The nuclear industry has a major presence in the west, and there are opportunities in manufacturing, chemicals and engineering in various parts of the county, as well as for working in education and health.
