Westonbirt, The National Arboretum is one of the world’s finest botanical collections of trees and shrubs.  With approx. 2,800 taxa and 15,000 specimens growing in 250ha of a beautifully designed and picturesque landscape, it is a Grade I registered historic park and garden, and Level 4 ArbNet accredited arboretum.  The arboretum is headed by Andrew Smith, Director, and our vision is to be a world leader in trees.

This is a very rare opportunity to join the team tasked with looking after the living collection and historic landscape at Westonbirt.  We are seeking an enthusiastic individual with a passion for woody plants, eager to develop their botanical and horticultural knowledge to assist in the propagation of plants and the day to day running of the arboretum nursery.  This newly created position will directly support our amazingly talented and vastly experienced Propagator, in the growing of an extensive range of woody plants within our own on-site nursery.  The new plantings that you will help to grow will ultimately ensure that the arboretum can be enjoyed by future generations.

This will be a full time fixed term appointment for 18 months, based within the specialist Propagation Unit and living collection at Westonbirt.
