A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced Gardener to work for an established company in the Reading area, Berkshire. The company is celebrating 25 years in business, and offers a range of services within the green industry.
The ideal candidate will hold a recognised horticultural qualification or considerable experience, have good plant knowledge, experience with a range of grounds maintenance equipment and will be used to working with common garden plants and features. The role will predominantly involve acting as a sole mobile gardener, though you will also be working within a small team at times. A driving licence is therefore essential.
You must be conscientious, well presented, be able to work under your own initiative and have a positive ‘can-do’ attitude to your work.
You must have experience with hedge cutting, lawn maintenance, pruning, planting, bed/border maintenance, and be willing to undertake other gardening maintenance tasks as they arise. A spray ticket (PA1/PA6) is desirable but not essential.
This role is presented on a part-time basis of 3 days per week. This may however lead to increased hours depending on employee performance and available work. An hourly rate is offered which will rise after successful completion of a three month probationary period.
Thank you for the interest you have shown in this vacancy. Unfortunately, due to the high volume of applications that we receive, it is not possible to respond to every one. Therefore, unless you hear from us within the next 14 days, your application will have been unsuccessful.
