Gardener

Posted 20 December 2017 by Reed Featured Ended
Reed Business School is a UK centre of excellence for professional qualification tuition, established in 1972. We specialise in ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW and CII qualifications.
The Business School is based in a stunning converted 15th Century Manor house located in the heart of the Cotswolds, Reed Business School is situated in the picturesque village of Little Compton. The unique, relaxed atmosphere allows students to focus solely on preparing for and passing exams, away from the hustle and bustle of the city and usual distractions of a working environment.

The Reed Business School is looking for a Gardener to maintain and develop the beatifull gardens of the manor house. To mow and edge lawns in style consistent with required standards. To maintain and plant when necessary herbaceous and flower borders and even to help care for the deer and sheep.

We are a small team of enthusiastic gardeners with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. To be our ideal candidate, you will have experience of working in an historic garden as part as a team, as well as being comfortable with working on your own. Using your initiative you will have the opportunity to lead in caring for your own areas of the garden, taking the chance to enjoy maintaining them to a standard which makes you feel proud, and improving them through planting and design.

We have a mixture of topiary and formal hedges which the whole team work together to maintain. This involves working at height! You’ll also be happy to muck in with the day to day tasks of mowing, weeding, dead-heading, and edging up, to make sure that we keep the whole garden looking at its best all year round. We care for the deer and sheep on site in addition to more conventional gardening tasks, so you’ll think nothing of donning your overalls and grabbing a shepherd’s crook.

Sir Alec Reed is very proud of the gardens and gardeners here, and is always encouraging new ideas, so there is plenty of scope for you to grow with us and feel appreciated for your efforts.
