Our client is a family-run business offering a complete turnkey design, build and garden maintenance service.  Their high-quality portfolio of work ranges from residential gardens to high-end commercial properties.  Services offerings include design and build of nationwide projects as well as regular creative maintenance on local sites. 

The new Garden Maintenance Operative will work alongside a friendly team and will carry out regular maintenance visits to existing clients; managing their gardens while working to ensure consistently high standards in line with the company ethics.

The successful candidate must have good horticultural knowledge and previous experience in a similar role, i.e. general garden maintenance. Candidates must be flexible, able to multi-task and to manage clients’ expectations with a positive attitude.  This will be a busy role which requires good attention to detail at all times, an ability to deliver excellent customer service and to work well within a strong team.

A full clean driving licence and access to own transport is essential for travel to and from work (a company van is provided for client visits).  Applicants must have experience with a range of garden machinery and tools (hedge cutters, mowers, strimmers, blowers etc.) and be physically fit.

If required, shared accommodation is available in the farmhouse at £400/month with all bills and internet etc. included.  This position is therefore open to candidates currently living outside commutable areas, as well as to candidates already living locally.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop their overall skills within a close-knit team.  An opportunity to progress and manage your own garden maintenance round will be available for the right candidate.

If this vacancy is of interest, please apply or contact Mark Read on 01233 733510 or info@englishcountrygardeners.co.uk.
