A superb opportunity has arisen for a Gardener to manage the gardens at Clock Barn Wedding Venue, Tufton Warren Farmhouse and the surrounding landscaped areas.

Situated in the heart of the Hampshire countryside the venue owners have invested a lot of time and effort in creating an extensive country garden.  The successful candidate will join the venue maintenance team reporting into the Facilities Manager and be responsible for carrying on the work, maintaining the gardens to the highest standards and working closely with the owner as to how areas can be further improved.

Applicants will ideally have a horticultural qualification however this is not essential if good practical and relevant experience has been obtained. You will have strong plant knowledge with the ability to identify plants and understand how to prune/care for them as well as identify and deal with common garden pests and disease.

In addition, you will be required to help with lawn and hedge maintenance when required.  Having PA1/PA6 qualifications would be desirable.

Your standard working hours will be Monday to Friday 7.30am to 4pm however due to the busy seasonal nature of the wedding venue and accommodation you will need to be willing to arrange your work around bookings as well as seasonal and weather needs therefore early starts and weekend work may be required.
