Gardener (Fixed Term)

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic gardener who is prepared to join our ambitious team at the historic setting of Trinity College for a fixed term until 4 September 2020.

You will have a basic knowledge of gardening skills and practices and an understanding of working with an important plant collection, and all that is relevant in the day-to-day care and looking after such historic grounds.

Some Horticultural qualifications, preferably to RHS level 2, are desirable, but if you are that self-taught, dedicated and motivated gardener, we will be happy to talk to you. The post holder will be required to operate the College horticultural machinery in a safe and competent manner and so you must also hold a full valid driving licence.

You should be able to work on your own for some periods of time and equally to work comfortably as part of our team.

A willingness to adapt to our work methods and standards, and to partake in any necessary training to better fulfil your role within the team is essential.

The position is available until 4 September 2020.

Salary £20,444 per annum plus additional benefits
