Based from Kirkby Lonsdale on the edge of the Lake District National Park, we offer a special combination of interesting roles, flexible working, career opportunity and a supportive culture in which you will thrive as an individual and team member. Whilst we have been running some trips in England for many years though our sister company, Wilderness Scotland, we launched Wilderness England in 2022 and are already looking to expand our small team. It’s early days for Wilderness England but we are aim to follow in the footsteps of Wilderness Scotland who have been recognised as the 8th Best Small UK Workplace & 6th Best Small UK Workplace for Women in the 2018 Great Place to Work awards scheme rising to the UK’s  6th Best Small Workplace in 2020 along with an Excellence in Wellbeing award too.

At Wilderness England, alongside sister brands Wilderness Scotland and Wilderness Ireland, our aim is to break new ground and set the worldwide standard for what adventure travel should be. We commit with a passion to providing our customers with the most inspiring experiences of their lives, ensuring our experiences are delivered sustainably, promoting the value of wild places, setting new standards for tourism experiences and creating a rewarding, meaningful and truly fun place to work.

When you join the Wilderness team, it is more than just a job. You will be part of a dynamic team that are always seeking new ways in which we can improve. You will thrive in this fast paced environment but you will also be encouraged to bring new ideas and enthusiasm to the role and the company as a whole. You can read a bit more about us in our Culture Book to get a real feel for what we are about.

While we have a lot of fun at Wilderness England, our team is 100% focused on delivering 5 Star world-class client experiences. As such, you will bring a professional and high-energy approach with an unwavering focus in all aspects of the client travel experience.
