Our client offers a full in-house service of garden design, build and aftercare/maintenance.  The team of ten staff take pride in providing their loyal clients with a first-class service via a personal approach.  The company philosophy and attention to detail have resulted in word-of-mouth-derived repeat business since their establishment in 2009.  

Their portfolio of contracts range from small domestic gardens to large commercial estates and university grounds. This gives candidates an opportunity to experience a variety of work and client interfaces. They operate predominantly in the East London and Docklands area and are currently looking to expand their team to meet business growth demands.

Key points

Plant knowledge is an essential part of the role, along with a keen eye for detail and precision. Proven experience in all aspects of grounds maintenance and a good understanding of safe working practices is essential. Experience using garden maintenance machinery and tools e.g. pedestrian mowers; strimmers; leaf blowers etc. is required. 

Work hours are a minimum of 40 hrs a week Monday-Friday. Candidates must be flexible to work additional hours if required, and willing to work across a number of sites and in all weather conditions. Reliability and punctuality must be maintained at all times. The company vans are stocked with quality tools and are provided as part of the role. Initially you will be working under an experienced team leader to familiarise yourself with the sites and client requirements.

Must haves

Candidates will have good horticultural knowledge and practical ability. Essential skills will include:

  • Good knowledge of horticultural maintenance techniques
  • Excellent customer liaison skills
  • Practical skills using garden maintenance machinery and tools
  • Full UK driving licence preferred but not essential

An RHS Level 2 in Horticulture or similar is highly desirable for this role. The ideal candidate will have experience of working in both commercial and domestic environments.

PA1/PA6 and LANTRA/NPTC certificates in any other relevant machinery and equipment use will further strengthen a candidate’s application.
