Job Details

If you’ve got a love of horticulture and gardening and are looking for a new outlet for your passion and talents, then this opportunity may be just what you’re looking for.

We are GreenArt; setting the standard for creating, developing and caring for beautiful gardens for clients across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. Our aim is to provide them with a beautiful relaxing environment that improves the quality of their life as well as adding value to their property.

Our continued growth has prompted the need to recruit a horticulture expert to complement and develop our landscape gardening team providing vision, expert advice, and planting schemes to our customers, all delivered with horticultural best practice.

In particular you will:

  • Design, specify, provide quotations for and source planting schemes and maintain all necessary records of agreed projects, plant stocks and availability.
  • Work with our Garden Designer and Landscape Gardeners to create new planting schemes and develop long-term plans for our clients’ gardens.
  • Develop your supplier relationships and negotiate pricing and availability to identify and source the very best plants and trees, using local suppliers wherever possible.
  • Develop, implement and monitor Company standards and best practice across all horticultural practices in close collaboration with the Directors, Landscape Gardening Supervisor and Landscape Gardeners.

You will bring at least a Level 3 RHS, City & Guilds or Degree level qualification in horticulture and a real depth of knowledge and hands-on practical experience of developing and maintaining private or estate gardens. This will have given you a high level of plant knowledge, and the ability to design planting schemes to meet customer requirements.

If you’re currently frustrated with a lack of freedom in your current role, this opportunity will give you the ability to visualise, design and implement your ideas and develop a real bond with our customers and the rest of our team. You’ll relish the opportunity to use all your flexibility, strong interpersonal skills and reliability to embed this role within our current structure and add real value to our current services.

If you’re interested and have the required skills and experiences then search for GreenArt, Wallingford to learn more about us, then send your CV  or details of your current role to us via  HR@greenart.co.uk We’re moving fast on this appointment so if you’ve got the right experience then we’ll get straight back to you, to arrange an initial interview.
