I contacted English Country Gardeners in a state of panic after our gardener left, and within 3 weeks an eminently suitable replacement had been found, after a series of interviews with others that had been recommended by them. They were courteous, extremely efficient, and understood exactly what we were looking for. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
English Country Gardeners were wonderful to work with from start to finish. They took the time to really understand the role we were trying to fill and quickly provided suitable candidates for interviews. We ended up employing a wonderful gardener and we are very grateful to ECG for helping us. Their professionalism in sourcing references and supplying us with all the necessary information was brilliant and we wouldn’t hesitate in using them again or recommending them to others.
Painshill is a unique 18th Century English Landscape and we have used English Country Gardeners to source staff to maintain this living work of art. The candidates put forward each time have had the particular qualities and skills that we have been looking for. In addition, their recruitment team have been extremely supportive.
