Gardener required to maintain a two acre garden that requires 4 days a week attention. It is located in the South Down's National Park in the Cuckmere Valley.

The garden comprises numerous flower beds/borders, a small lake, cherry orchard and vinyard as well as a fruit garden, small vegetable area, lavender field, lawns and established trees and hedges. It covers approx 2 acres.

This role would be ideal for any student graduating in horticulture or similar course who is keen to develop his/her knowledge and experience through practical application. It would suit someone with a genuine interest in landscaping and garden maintenance with the aptitude and desire to self teach and research issues experienced in practice. The four day week would give flexibility to the gardener to attend courses and develop his her knowledge through continued studying.

Whilst a valid driving licence would be useful it is not essential and the job could come with a self contained one bedroom flat for the right candidate. The ideal candidate is someone who recognises the benefits of such an opportunity to develop skills and who demonstrates a desire to accept responsibility and take ownership of the garden. 

Further information, including a plan of the garden and job description can be supplied. Applications should comprise a short covering e mail and CV.
