A Sole Gardener is required to manage 10 acres of beautiful country estate in the heart of the Surrey countryside. You will be required to manage a kitchen garden, orchard, mixed borders, lawns, woodland, tennis court, swimming pool, etc. It is essential you have experience managing an estate of a similar size/nature and you have a strong work ethic and good all round plant knowledge. A horticultural qualification would be beneficial along with PA1/PA6 and chainsaw qualifications and experience using a wide range of garden machinery.

Assistance will be available from the existing Sole Gardener who is looking to scale back on hours/retire and also from external contractors during busy periods.  A full driving licence and transport are essential as this estate is in a rural location and this is a live out position but there may be an opportunity for accommodation.

Thank you for the interest you have shown in this vacancy.  Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications that we receive, it is not possible to respond to every one.  Therefore, unless you hear from us within the next 14 days, your application will have been unsuccessful.
