We have an exciting new position that has become available to join our Online Customer Service team at our offices in Falmouth. Our ideal candidate must be able to work weekends and evenings.
One of our graphic designers, Elly Jahnz, recently took a trip up country and found herself in the middle of an apple adventure…

One of our Seasalt Olympic Rowers, Helen Glover, recently spent a happy few days back in the ‘shire’ – here’s how she got on ….
This Friday, 30 September, people around the UK will be holding coffee mornings (or afternoons in our case) to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. We’ll be holding our very own Seasalt Big Bake Off, with tea, chat, adjudication and of course lots and lots of cake.
