An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full-time Gardener to join the team responsible for the maintenance and development of the gardens and grounds of Harrow School.
Steeped in centuries of history and tradition, the School has many unique and nationally important buildings, whose grounds and gardens cover an area of over 50 acres and comprise formal lawns, hedges and flower beds requiring a high standard of maintenance.
Working alongside the Gardens Manager and the gardening team, you should possess a horticultural qualification or have relevant experience.
Duties will include lawn care, planting, pruning, weeding and hedge cutting plus snow clearance and salting in the winter. It is therefore essential that applicants are capable of heavy lifting and are able to work outdoors throughout the year in all weathers.
Benefits include free lunch, automatic enrolment in the School’s pension scheme and use of the School’s sports facilities. Subsidised membership of the tennis, golf, angling and social clubs is also available.
