The Candidate
You might be an expert horticulturist, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic gardener or someone with a love of gardening and a desire to learn more. Regardless, you'll ideally also have some management or supervisory experience although not necessarily in retail as there is plenty of training and one-to-one support should it be required. What is important is a belief in managing people fairly and supportively and a willingness to lead by example where necessary. Ultimately this role will appeal to individuals who want to broaden their knowledge and work for a household name in the Garden Centre & Nursery business.
