RHS Garden Bridgewater Salford, Greater Manchester

37.5 hours per week (Any 5 days out of a 7 day period)

The Royal Horticultural Society is the world’s leading gardening charity, devoted to promoting and sharing the best in gardening and horticulture.  Our existing four Gardens are a key part of this vision, and are amongst the finest in the country, showcasing the best in horticulture, as well as being centres of learning and major visitor destinations.  RHS Bridgewater will be our fifth garden and marks a significant milestone in the continuing growth of the organisation within the U.K.

You would be joining the RHS at the most exciting time in its 211 year history with major investments being made across the organisation. This includes a multi-million pound investment into RHS Garden Bridgewater that will create the opportunity to develop new collections, planting combinations and landscapes to engage with an entirely new audience in the north-west of England.

This role offers a brilliant career opportunity to work in a dynamic, challenging and diverse environment at an early phase of development at RHS Bridgewater. Initially you’ll be working on implementing the various newly designed garden areas at Bridgewater. Ultimately you’ll be responsible for the care, cultivation and maintenance of allocated areas of the garden with an eventual onus on the outer areas of The Walled Garden / relevant support services and for contributing to the delivery of garden / support service plans and programmes of work and guidance to trainees and volunteers.
