Senior Gardener Job in Surrey

 

My client, a lovely prep school in Surrey, requires and experienced and enthusiastic Senior Gardener.

 

The school is set on beautiful grounds, and your focus will be implementing the redesign of an 18th century 1 acre walled Garden. This is a 10 year project, and is a really exciting opportunity for the right candidate to be part of an interesting and hands on project.

 

When the walled Garden is complete, your duties will include;

 

  • Planting

  • Propagation

  • Greenhouse Management

  • Landscaping

  • Grounds Maintenance duties

 

While you will be focusing on the walled Garden, you will also be working with Woodland, and Landscaped areas. There is a full time Grounds team employed.

 

Ideally, this walled Garden will also be used for educational purposes, so the client would like you to be happy interacting with the students and teaching them about the Garden. They are quite keen to develop something productive. It is open to the NGS every May.

 

You will be self-motivated, hands on, and be able to take initiative. You will be happy to turn your hand to anything, and have a positive approach.
