An excellent opportunity has become available for a Head Gardener for a large estate in Oxfordshire. The successful candidate will be in charge of the ongoing maintenance of the entire garden throughout the seasons, with a view to increase the horticultural standard.

The moated property is encompassed by diverse, established gardens, featuring a 3-acre walled garden, herbaceous borders, vegetable garden, yew and box hedging and a combination of both formal and informal lawns, including an island lawn within the moat. The wider estate expands for a further three acres, featuring a mixture of parkland combined with young and mature trees.

The key focus for the Head Gardener will be to bring passion into and raise the standards within the garden to a high horticultural standard. Additionally, the owners are keen to progress the vegetable garden and begin to regularly provide seasonal produce to the main house. The successful candidate will be a knowledgeable and experienced gardener, with extensive plant knowledge, able to properly care for herbaceous borders, an eye for detail, and have demonstratable experience within a similar setting. The ideal candidate will also demonstrate a positive and approachable attitude, with the ability to manage their own workload throughout the seasons. Relevant horticultural qualifications are desirable but not essential, alongside the addition of industry related tickets such as PA1/PA6 spraying and chainsaw certification.

This is an amazing opportunity for a gardener who is searching for a long-term position to implement their skills, while developing an established garden. In addition, the newly appointed Head Gardener will be involved in the future recruitment of an undergardener. The position is full time, Monday to Friday. Furthermore, accommodation is available to the successful candidate via an assured short hold tenancy agreement if required.

SALARY:        Circa £42,000 DOE

LOCATION:   North Wiltshire
