Live-out Gardener required for a private family based in West Sussex. This is a new position and you will be working alongside the Estate Manager.
The applicant must be a horticultural specialist, have knowledge of green keeping & turf care as well as the standard gardening jobs.
This is an excellent position and long term career for the right applicant.
The successful applicant must be horticulturally trained with extensive experience with herbaceous plants, roses, trees, topiary and lawn maintenance. The role involves more formal gardening than grounds maintenance work; hence we are seeking experienced gardeners who are horticulturally qualified, with suitable experience.
The gardens are young so it is essential to find a gardener who will bring them to maturity. The gardens consist of a formal walled garden and rose garden, with a view to design and work a vegetable garden. Work is on-going so will need to work alongside other contractors at times. The successful applicant must be highly motivated, hardworking and an excellent communicator.
To start July/August 2012, and salary/package dependant upon experience
