An opportunity has arisen to manage Highdown Gardens which is a Grade II* listed garden of national importance set in a chalk pit in the South Downs near Worthing in West Sussex. Originally laid out by Sir Frederick Stern and internationally renowned plant collector, the gardens were bequeathed to Worthing Borough Council in 1969.

We are seeking to appoint a proven horticulturalist to lead and manage a small team maintaining a wide and diverse collection of plants that thrive in the chalk rich environment.

This is a temporary post for a 12 month period
