These are temporary seasonal contracts commencing April 2020 and terminating on 30th September 2020.
The post holders will have an interest in gardening and amenity horticultural maintenance in either a domestic or professional capacity and be prepared to work outdoors. They should display a helpful manner/attitude and be able to work on own initiative as well as part of a team. Previous experience in grounds maintenance and operating mowing and other horticultural equipment would be advantageous, although enthusiasm for outdoor work is equally as important and training can be provided.

Two posts are available in the Cemeteries team working 37 hours per week.
