STAFF VACANCY ~ Spring 2018

Part time seasonal worker
We have a vacancy for a part time (minimum 16 hours per week) nursery assistant. Duties to include all aspects of work within a busy retail / growing plant nursery. You must already have a good knowledge of plants, be very fit, willing to learn and not afraid of hard work & have good communication skills. You may be expected to work for 1 day at weekends during busy periods and Bank Holidays on a rota basis and able to work on a regular weekly pattern.

The nursery stocks over 3000 varieties / species of plants from the familiar to the very rare. Our customers range  from the raw beginner to those who have a profound knowledge and enthusiasm for plants. From the humble back yard and window box to a Stately home, Botanic Gardens or Royal Palaces.

The work involves a lot of carrying and stooping - in all weathers. Forget any illusions about strolling about with trug and watering can!! This can be a demanding job and the pressures can be high especially during early summer. However, there can be a lot of job satisfaction and a sense of achievement plus the opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge about plants whilst enjoying working outside in a friendly, small nursery.
