Think of us as property managers and developers with a difference

Do you want to make a difference?

We don’t just talk about values, we live them. In our work, in our home lives and in our volunteering. We choose to work with people who feel the same way. Contractors, partners and agencies alike, we expect them to prove to us that they have a similar way of going about business.

At BEC, we come from all walks of life, and all parts of Cumbria and beyond, but we have one thing in common: we are all working together to make a real difference right here in West Cumbria. 

If you work for us, you can expect flexible working, a fair salary, together with a competitive benefits package including private healthcare, generous employer pension contributions, good holiday allowance, your birthday off, and time off for volunteering- just some of the reasons why we’ve been listed as one of The Sunday Times’ Best Places to Work 2024!

More than this, you can expect to work with a team that gives you the respect you deserve and values your input from the very start. And you can expect to feel a real sense of pride in the job you do, every single day.

So . . . do you want to work for a company with a difference?  Do you want to shape our community and create a lasting impact?  What are you waiting for?  Apply today!
