Do you have a genuine interest in growing plants and are looking for your first step to a successful career?

About our Client

We are working with a successful, forward-thinking online garden retailer business that is looking for people with an interest in horticulture to join their team. Our client is a successful mail-order business, growing plants across 16 acres with a packhouse on site too.

The role will involve learning how a nursery operates day-to-day. You will support with general plant care, learn about health and safety procedures, and always maintain cleanliness. You will be involved in crop walking, where you will learn about pest and disease monitoring, irrigation and applying feed. As the role progresses you will support within more areas in the nursery.

This is a great role for someone looking to start a career in horticulture. You will have a qualification of some form in horticulture or a related subject, with a passion to learn. You have to enjoy working outdoors, be willing to learn and work well as part of a team. The business is committed to training up passionate individuals, and there is also an opportunity to get your spray certificates too.
