Current Vacancies

Retail Sales Assistant(s)

We have a vacancy for either one full time or two part time sales assistant(s) to work a minimum of six hours on three to five days a week in the garden centre shop.  The working week will include a regular and fixed weekend day.  Our preference is for candidates with a keen interest in plants and/or some experience in a similar retail environment.  We would also favour candidates with a good knowledge of IT hardware or software and able to help grow our internet sales.  The position is for six months initially and is not suitable for students.  NLW rates of pay will apply, but experienced candidates may be paid more.


Catering Assistants

Our catering department has recently expanded and is now seeing record sales.  To keep the momentum for growth we will need more staff from early September.  Initially we are looking for one full time and two part time catering assistants working front of house, serving customers and hot beverages in either the Four Seasons Bistro or the Garden Café.    We are seeking a mix of candidates, with or without relevant professional experience, but some form of customer service experience is essential.  All staff will be required to work one fixed weekend day per week.


Weekend Catering Assistants

Our catering facilities are at their busiest at the weekends so we are seeking up to weekend staff to supplement the team, working front of house, serving food and beverages. The vacancies are ideal for students, but applicants must be aged 17 or over (exceptionally we will take mature 16 year old candidates approaching their 17th birthday, but for a maximum shift of 5 hours).  These vacancies will arise in September once our present crop of young assistants leave for univeristy.
