Our client is looking to recruit an Estate Gardener to be based in Broughton in Furness.

The Estate Gardener role includes:

  • To be a real asset to the team, you’ll be willing to get stuck in and do whatever is necessary to ensure their grounds and gardens look lovely all year round.
  • This will include using ride-on mowers, chainsaws, sprayers and other grounds equipment safely — training will be provided.
  • Although not necessary, some plant knowledge will be a bonus to ensure their diverse gardens look their best.

In return you will receive:

An attractive Salary - £21,000 - £23,000 depending on experience, plus excellent benefits including free leisure and golf club membership, healthcare cash back plan and 33 days’ holiday (including 8 bank holidays)
