We have a truly amazing opportunity for the right candidate, set in a beautiful Private Residence close to London. The Estate is going through a Major re-development stage, and the clients are keen for the garden to be included in this. The Estate itself, is just a beautiful place to be, its surrounded by twenty eight acres of native woodland, horses and lakes. The garden is split into formal and unformal areas, which  include fruit trees, a vegetable garden and formal rose gardens. The candidate must have some knowledge of vegetable gardens, and their upkeep. Ideally the candidate will have worked with similar planting schemes before and be willing to come up with some suggestions for the garden.

The candidate will be working underneath an Estates manager who's background is designing and maintaining Estate Gardens for High Net Worth Clients. He is very keen to move the garden forwards and is willing to pass his knowledge onto the right individual. This will be a working relationship in which he will be hands on in the garden with the candidate as much as he can. He is also willing to take someone on with less knowledge and train them up to standard. So please don't be put off if you don't feel you tick every box. The client supports this outlook and is keen to give people an opportunity as long as they work hard and deliver. Happy to consider ex military applications who are looking for a new opportunity too..

There will be duties which include, feeding animals, taking bins out, cleaning driveways and keeping an eye on security etc. 

The candidate must have a full clean UK Driving license and own transport. The most important thing is that the candidate has a 'good sense of humour' and have a positive outlook on their duties. 

The Estate is a Private Family Residence and therefore the individual needs to be professional, respect the clients privacy and be comfortable around big dogs. Its paramount, that the candidate understands discretion and no photography, or pictures will be allowed whilst at work. Or any social media coverage about the estate. 

This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to get into the High Net Worth Sector and train underneath someone who has a solid reputation and willing to pass on their knowledge.  

 Previous experience on a small digger, chainsaw licenses and PA1/ PA6 is preferred.
