2018 'Employer of the Year' for horticulture!
Majestic Trees is hiring Skilled Tree Planters - Unbelievably, 2020 miraculously ended as our best year ever, with sales up over our record 2019, resulting in very good profit sharing for the team! With an expanding order book, we are looking to hire new team members, preferably with specimen tree planting experience.
We are an award-winning grower that has won the UK Nursery Stock Grower of the Year an unprecedented four times and was the 2018 'Employer of the Year' for horticulture! Specialising in the supply and planting of mature and character trees of exceptional quality, we are unique amongst growers in providing a complete in-house service, from selection advice to delivery, planting and aftercare, so that our customers can fully engage with the fulfilling experience of planting trees. We plant extensively for private and professional customers nationwide and are a preferred supplier to the RHS. Our visitor-friendly nursery is open to the public six days a week, where over 12,000 trees set out over 27 acres can be viewed and personally selected.
This opportunity is for fit, hardworking men or women to join our delivery and planting teams, for our customers primarily in the south east, but also nationwide. You will also be expected to be able to plant trees manually & with the use of heavy machinery depending on the requirements of each job. A HGV/LGV license would be a real benefit, and if interested we would be willing to train the right individual. A “can do”, nothing is impossible, positive attitude, whatever the challenge and in any weather is important. Furthermore, the ability to multi-task, work hard and to deadlines efficiently in a team is essential.
Experience in horticulture and specifically planting large trees would be an advantage, as is the ability to drive excavators and heavy machinery used in tree production and planting, though we can train the right applicant on specific machines. A solid horticultural knowledge of how things grow, though not necessarily college, is most beneficial.
There will be some nights away with good food and hotel accommodation provided. Our delivery and planting team is comprised of 8 people, some of whom have been together since soon after the nursery was formed 20 years ago.
