Job Vacancy

Submitted on 09 August 2017 by Sue Young

We currently have a vacancy for an assistant outdoor maintenance worker.

The successful candidate will join our senior groundsman and apprentice, to work a minimum of 20 and up to 30 hrs/wk on a variety of outside maintenance tasks, including maintaining the village greens, allotments, and cemetery, attending to Council-owned hedges, ditches and verges, and tending planters and garden spaces.

The candidate should have experience of working with garden machinery and horticultural chemicals, and be familiar with a range of maintenance techniques, and appropriate health and safety requirements.  A full clean driving licence is desirable. A knowledge of seasonal planting would also be helpful.  Relevant experience is more important than formal qualifications.

This will be a permanent appointment for the right person, with a salary commensurate with skills and experience.
