We have a wonderful opportunity for the right candidate, on a beautiful private estate. We are looking for a true professional gardener, who has a passion for Horticulture. The candidate needs to have a strong knowledge of Kitchen and Vegetable gardening, including working with fruit trees and a RHS level three or similar. The candidate needs to be physically fit, motivated and able to work alone. As this is a family home for a private family, the individual must understand the rules and protocols that surround this position, and adhere to them. The garden itself is beautiful, its encroached in acres of woodland, with vast fields and truly special views. The horticultural equipment is all brand new, and top of the range. The garden is completely organic, and we do not use any chemicals, weed killer, of any sort. 

Candidates also need a strong knowledge of the use of horticultural machines, strimmers, mowers, hedge cutters, with proven track record of their use. Previous experience in mowing straight lines is also desirable.

The garden has just had a full irrigation system installed, including robot mowers which are a great addition to the estate. The estate itself is going through a full re-design, with a Chelsea flower show designer, whom is responsible for the project. This is an exciting time to join our team, and be part of the process. 

Ideally we are looking for someone with over five years minimum gardening experience, you will be working alongside a Head Gardener who trained at Windsor castle, and spent many years designing and building gardens on private estates. This is an excellent opportunity to progress your career and learn from a more experienced individual, whom is willing to pass on his knowledge.

There will be opportunities along the way for your own input and ideas. We want someone nice and genuine who wants to bring in their positive energy to the garden. This is the place if you like laughing as much as you do horticulture. 

There is no accommodation included in this role. There are also strict Covid measures in place on site due to covid 19.  Two references, an enhanced DBS and a full clean driving license is required for this position, with no exceptions. 

Please send over a cover letter, with your resume, if you think you have matched our criteria.
