We require an experienced Head Gardener to manage a beautiful Victorian walled garden on a private estate in Suffolk. You will need to be confident to manage four full time gardeners, although this fluctuates seasonally. The Head Gardener will oversee the gardeners working on the micro herbs, vegetables, fruit and flowers both in the garden itself and the poly tunnels attached to the walled garden. The garden is a commercial concern with produce grown to service a leading central London restaurant.
The right person needs to be organised, a great team leader, passionate about gardening and food, so they are able to converse easily with the chefs in London to agree produce ranges and timings. We need an energetic doer as there are lots of deadlines to be met! It is not an administrative role, however there will be some administrative duties.
This is a truly exciting position and the right person will find it a fulfilling challenge. Salary circa £25k p.a. depending on experience.
