We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Gardener to join a well-established and welcoming gardening team of 4 looking after the gardens of a large private ultra-high net worth estate in West Oxfordshire/Cotswolds.

The garden duties include maintaining kitchen gardens, producing organic fruit and veg, propagation, formal beds/borders, maintaining manicured lawns, topiary and hedges, annual plant and garden management, amongst many other responsibilities.

You must have comprehensive experience and knowledge of working in gardens to a high standard, an understanding of managing gardens and their annual requirements, and dealing with plants with the correct horticultural practice.

You must be horticulturally trained and have a pesticide spraying licence. A chainsaw certificate would also be hugely beneficial for this role.
