Head Gardener Job in Surrey

 

My client requires an experienced and knowledgeable Head Gardener for a 40 acre property near Guildford. You must have excellent horticultural knowledge, and will initially be working alongside a Garden Designer. This is an exciting opportunity to be involved with a project from the beginning, and to implement new ideas and designs.

 

At present, the property consists of a 30 acre woodland, and 10 acres of Formal Gardens. It is comprised of Lawns, Trees, and a lot of Rhododendrons, but the client is keen to develop it.

 

Your duties will include;

 

  • Hands on Gardening

  • Some Garden Design and Implementation

  • Woodland Management

 

This role will develop and grow as the Garden does, and your range of duties will expand.

 

The ideal candidate will have a Chainsaw licence, and experience with Woodland Management. You will have excellent Gardening experience and will have worked in private estates for at least 3 years. A degree in Botany or similar qualifications would be a bonus.

 

This position is ideally a Live Out role, but the client may source accommodation for the right candidate.

 

Start Date; ASAP

 

Salary; £28 – 32k depending on whether it’s live in or live out

 

Job ID; 45517
