Salary £20,928 - £24,729 dependent on experience and knowledge
(37 hrs per week)
We have an exciting opportunity for a skilled and experienced Groundsman or woman to join our parks team and help us maintain the high-quality facilities that our residents and visitors enjoy.
This will be achieved through the maintenance and care of bowling greens, cricket squares and other playing surfaces and horticultural tasks such as cutting grass, pruning, and planting. In addition, you will ensure the parks are kept clean and tidy, including changing rooms and other buildings and will be responsible for safety testing of certain facilities and keeping records of the results.
This is a mobile role and you would move between our five staffed parks as the work demands. You will work alone some of the time but have the support of other members of the team as needed.
You must be experienced, enthusiastic and knowledgeable groundsman/woman, with particular skills around the maintenance and care of fine turf playing surfaces.
You will need good communication skills and be able to liaise with the public in a polite and friendly manner. You should be self-motivated, reliable, and flexible. You will need to work outside for most of the day, and some aspects of the job are particularly physically demanding.
If you have a proactive approach and a passion for providing high horticultural standards whilst having excellent customer service skills then this could be the job for you.
