Overview of the Role:

At RHS Garden Wisley we are looking for a Team Leader to join our Garden Support Services Team. 

Based at the Flagship Garden, we have a Team Leader opportunity for someone with great communication skills, a flair for turf management and an understanding that support services are a crucial part of the ‘day to day’ running of a garden. This post oversees the in-house composting, hard landscaping repairs, pest control and the management of Wisley’s lawn and meadow areas, many of which boast creative mowing patterns. We want to continue to build on this to demonstrate that turf management can be fun and as creative as other styles of gardening and importantly utilising sustainable management practices in lawn care. The team consists of three full time horticulturists, a composting and green waste management post and a part time hard landscaper post. 

To work for the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is to join a thriving charity, whose mission is to inspire everyone to grow. Everything we do is built on the transformational power of gardening – and the benefits it brings to people, places and our planet. 

Known globally for our inspirational Shows and five spectacular Gardens, our work extends to leading ground-breaking climate research, running community outreach programmes, and setting the standards in horticultural education. With the recent opening of RHS Garden Bridgewater and Hilltop, the world’s first dedicated Centre for Gardening Science, at RHS Garden Wisley, there has never been a more exciting time to be part of our journey to make the UK a greener, and more beautiful place. 

And we couldn’t do this without our people. We’re proud of the knowledge, enthusiasm and ideas that each one of our team members brings. From working across our social media channels, to volunteering in the RHS Gardens, from serving customers in our garden centres to running national marketing campaigns, we believe that every member of the RHS team should have the opportunity to make a difference.
