Are you a professional horticulturist who is excited to make an important move in your career by joining the gardeners here at the University of Exeter?
This full time, permanent post is available immediately.
Application closing date Monday 8th August.
We are a dedicated team who are fortunate to be involved in delivering the full breadth of horticulture as part of a service to the campuses at Streatham and St Luke’s.
We work in an established landscape with both modern and historically significant planting and we are driven by working towards a broad range of goals that are mentally and physically rewarding in a healthy way.
It’s an estate quite unlike any other, with a staff and student population of over 23,000 people and hundreds of private public and ticketed events that manifest in an energy you can really feel over the course of a normal day here.
With a genuinely proud safety culture, we take time and make time for your development and best practice out in the gardens.
Your role will focus on all expected seasonal work across beds, mixed shrub borders, lawns and hedges. It will also intermittently include planting, propagation and occasional cover in our plant nursery, wildlife habitat management and reactionary work during severe weather.
We are a proud custodian to our 150 hectares of gardens and grounds.
The working pattern will be 5 over 7 days which will include working weekends. For the right candidate we can discuss a flexible working pattern.
