Greycoat Lumleys’ client is seeking a Gardener for their property near Duns in the Scottish Borders.
This position offers huge potential for someone who is creative and has a passion for gardening. There is a groundsman already at the property but they need a Gardener to really improve the place and to continue to work with the principles to make it a beautiful retreat for them.
The principles are in part time residence as they will use the property during the school holidays and occasionally visit during term time. They are a friendly and informal household and they appreciate having a good relationship with their staff, having employed other staff for almost 10 years. This says a lot about the kind of people they are and how they treat people who work for them.
The gardens are made up of extensive lawns, walled garden, pound and woodlands. There is a lot of scope to really transform the place.
Duties would include:
Maintaining garden machinery
Coming up with new ideas for the garden and discussing with the principles
Establishing a vegetable and fruit area within the walled garden
Introducing more flowers and plants to the gardens
Working alongside the groundsman
Communicating with the PA and/or the principles about any issues within the gardens
Start: ASAP or whenever is possible for the person
Hours: 20-25 hours per week
Job Number: 49481
