As a new year approaches...
Perhaps it is time to do something new?
We are excited to offer three new positions for early 2020 within the Rose Castle Foundation’s (RCF) expanding team.

RCF is based at Rose Castle, Cumbria, an 800-year-old border fortress originally built to keep the enemy out. Today, RCF is turning history on its head, transforming Rose Castle into a global landmark for peace and reconciliation, welcoming those from across divides to live and learn together.
We have sent you this email because we believe you may be interested in these openings, for yourself, for another or because we think you might be able to help us reach the best talent possible for these exciting new opportunities.

Plans Take Shape
Plans to transform the former Bishop of Carlisle's residence into an international centre of reconciliation have taken a major step forward.
Raising the funds needed for the project is already underway, but Rose Castle Company (RCC) has confirmed that the project as a whole has been underwritten by an unnamed "generous benefactor".
A planning application has now been submitted to Carlisle City Council to transform the castle, based near Dalston, from the former Bishop's residence to a mixed use conference centre.
