Job Details

Gardens Team Leader – Lake District Private Estate


£27,000 – £29,000 plus generous benefits


Although we’re a leading educational publishing company, we also have a passion for property and grounds. We’re looking for a talented person to lead a small team of gardeners across our Lake District estate which extends to more than 200 acres.


As Gardens Team Leader you’ll be an experienced horticulturist with a sound track record of leading teams. You’ll thrive on taking responsibility and work collaboratively with your colleagues — maintaining borders, planning planting schemes and general garden maintenance. When needed you’ll be happy to get stuck in and help out across the whole estate.


You’ll have exceptional customer service and drive and will make a real impact by:


- Managing the workflow of our gardening team

- Challenging people to meet your high standards and monitoring the quality of work

- Dealing with operational issues, with a focus on solutions, not problems

- Enthusing others with your positive attitude and superb interpersonal skills


A keen eye for detail is essential, as is an engaging and down-to-earth manner. Applicants must also be flexible, trustworthy, organised and have excellent communication skills. And given the various locations of our sites, a full driving licence is essential.




To find out more, including FAQs on this role, visit our website. To apply, select the apply button shown and send your CV and a full covering letter explaining why you’re right for this role. Please include details of your current salary and benefits. Successful applicants will be invited to Broughton-in-Furness for assessment.


Closing Date: Monday 17th January 2022


Other organisations may call this role Gardening Manager, Horticulturalist, Horticultural Manager, Lead Grounds Person, or Lead Gardener.
