As the Head Gardener for Surrey Landscapes you’ll be leading a team of gardeners and volunteers to manage a portfolio of diverse landscapes and gardens. This is a new role within the portfolio, so it’s a great opportunity for you to make it your own. The portfolio includes Claremont, a landscape garden famed for its place in history as a Royal palace. Winkworth Arboretum, an internationally renowned garden with unique plants, and large visitor numbers each year, as well as Oak Hurst Cottage, a 16th century home providing a glimpse into the past and Holmwood Common, an ancient common once owned by King Harold and William the Conqueror.
Based at Claremont, you’ll oversee senior gardeners at Claremont and Winkworth. You’ll lead the hard working team, from the front in a hands on approach. You’ll be able to lead by example and encourage a sense of innovation and experimentation.
As the Head Gardener for this portfolio you’ll be responsible for some of our most beautiful landscapes, including Claremont and Winkworth Arboretum.
Closing date 30th October 2016
