English Heritage cares for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places. Through these, we bring the story of England to life for over 10 million visitors each year.
Witley Court is an outstanding property within the English Heritage portfolio and attract around 80,000 visitors each year. It is a major garden site forming part of the West Territory. The gardens of Witley Court are fine examples of a William Nestfield landscape of the nineteenth century and have been subject to a major restoration and replanting over the last few years. There is more work to do and working with English Heritage and designers on those projects is a key part of this exciting role.
Against this backdrop we are seeking someone to take on the role of Senior Gardener. Reporting to the Head Gardener and Site Manager, the Senior Gardener is responsible for upkeep and development of Garden areas both formal and informal, the supervision of staff and volunteers, of maintenance of equipment, health and safety and risk assessment. You will be based at Witley Court.

You’ll find it’s a workplace like no other – taking you behind the scenes of these extraordinary sites and supporting you to share your ideas, inspire others and make a difference.
If you have a passion for working in historic gardens, are excited about sharing this with others, and developing others to do the same, then we’d love to hear from you.
