We have two exciting opportunities for skilled and experienced Groundsmen/women to work in our parks and help us maintain the high quality facilities that our residents and visitors enjoy.  You must be experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable groundsman/women, with particular skills around the maintenance and care of fine turf playing surfaces.

The main responsibilities will be delivering the high standards of presentation and customer service within the park expected by the Council.  This will be achieved through the maintenance and care of bowling greens, cricket squares and other playing surfaces and horticultural tasks such as cutting grass, pruning and planting. In addition you will ensure the park is kept clean and tidy, including changing rooms and public toilets and will be responsible for testing facilities and keeping records of the results.  You will be supported by an Assistant Groundsman and, occasionally, a Sports Turf Apprentice. The successful candidates will be expected to train and assist in developing these staff.

You will need excellent communication skills and be able to liaise with the public in a polite and friendly manner.  You should have the ability to work alone at times, be self-motivated, reliable and flexible. You will need to work outside for most of the day, and some aspects of the job are particularly physically demanding.

One role will be based at Victory Park in Addlestone and the other at Chertsey Recreation Ground, Chertsey.

If you have a proactive approach and a passion for providing high horticultural standards whilst having excellent customer service skills then this could be the job for you.
