£27 – 29k plus great benefits

Although we’re an educational publishing company (the UK’s No.1, in fact), we also have a passion for property and grounds.  We’re looking for a talented person to lead a small team of gardeners across our Lake District estate which extends to more than 200 acres.

As Gardens Team Leader you’ll be an experienced horticulturist with a sound track record of leading teams.  You’ll thrive on taking responsibility and work collaboratively with your colleagues — maintaining borders, planning planting schemes and general garden maintenance. When needed you’ll be happy to get stuck in and help out across the whole estate.

You’ll have exceptional customer service, energy and drive and will make a real impact by:

  • Managing workflow of our gardening team
  • Challenging people to meet your high standards, and monitoring quality of work
  • Dealing with operational issues — with a focus on solutions, not problems
  • Enthusing others with your positive attitude and superb interpersonal skills

A keen eye for detail is essential, as is an engaging and down-to-earth manner.  Applicants must also be flexible, trustworthy, organised and have excellent communication skills. And given the various locations of our sites, a full driving licence is essential.
