An opportunity has arisen for a passionate Gardener to work for an established and well respected company, located between Sevenoaks and Maidstone, Kent.

The ideal candidate will be experienced in a range of gardening duties such as hedge cutting, lawn maintenance, pruning, planting, bed/border maintenance, and be willing to carry out a range of other gardening tasks as they arise.  As you will be expected to interact with clients on site, you must be conscientious and well presented with a positive attitude.  You should be willing to work in all weather conditions, be physically able to undertake the tasks at hand with a ‘can-do’ attitude and attention to detail.  You must have a full UK driving licence and your own car for travel to and from work.  Typical working hours are 07:30 – 16:30 Monday to Friday, with any Saturday overtime paid at a flat hourly rate.

The standard working week is 42.5hrs; a basic salary of £19,760.  Considerable additional earnings are possible via overtime opportunities.
