We have a vacancy for a gardener (including some grounds work) at a private country Estate near Oxford. We are seeking someone who can work well as part of a small but highly dedicated team, has exceptional attention to detail and a willingness to learn and adapt on a continuing basis.

Role

The overall maintenance of the garden and grounds, working alongside the Head Gardener and Senior Gardener. The key tasks will be garden project work, mowing, strimming, hedge cutting and seasonal work. Ability to muck in and help on adhoc Estate jobs is also a must.

Familiarity with agricultural equipment from small tractors to mini diggers an advantage but not essential – training will be given if needed.

Knowledge and experience of using rotary, cylinder and ride on mowers

Strimming and brush cutting

Interest in horticulture a must and a desire to further and broaden your experience.

Qualifications and experience
