Morton Gamble Gardens Ltd. is looking for an ambitious and extremely competent garden maintenance operative ready to take on more responsibility OR an already established team leader.

The successful candidate, experienced in grounds maintenance, will help to grow our small, successful company, which has a fantastic reputation with clients.

The role would especially appeal to a person currently working in a larger grounds maintenance company (or with recent experience off such work) who feels frustrated by the constraints of working in a large, hierarchical environment, someone with very good experience of grounds maintenance work or someone new to the area (with past experience).

Essential knowledge includes plants, planting and pruning, and the use of petrol machinery such as mowers, hedge cutters etc. Wider knowledge of the sector would also be beneficial including some health and safety awareness. Spraying certification would also be advantageous.

Initial duties will be to ensure that grounds maintenance tasks are carried out effectively and efficiently; overseeing and working as part of a team in a every day hands on role in the gardens. Filling out time sheets and managing schedules will be a part of daily life.

The candidate must be absolutely FLUENT in English, 22+ years old (for insurance purposes), with a driving license and excellent levels of communication. They must also live within an hour of London N8.
