Based at either University Park or Jubilee Campus, this role will undertake all practical aspects of landscape maintenance including planting a wide range of shrubs, perennials, upkeep of ornamental gardens and bedding displays, including keeping all areas of work clean, tidy and promoting a welcoming place with a strong emphasis on the environment and health and safety.
Other duties will include the preparation, care and maintenance of amenity landscaped areas and sports grounds and the operation of a wide range of horticultural and grounds maintenance machinery.
