Estate Garden Manager

After our most un-British of summers, an exciting new opportunity has been created for an Estate Garden Manager for a luxury 5 Star Hotel located just north of Harpenden.

The Estate Garden Manager will be a key part of the management team within this beautiful 1000- acre estate, with responsibility for overseeing the Garden and Green-keeping teams and the day-to-day management of the grounds.

This is a truly beautiful location, and a dream for someone with a real passion and vision. As well as an international standard golf course, the site also contains formal gardens & glorious parkland designed by Capability Brown, meadows, woodlands, lakes, rivers and nature trails. It is real 5 Star luxury.

The Estate Garden Manager role is an interesting and varied hands-on one in that it balances different horticultural challenges with managerial responsibilities, however after such a long dry summer it offers a real opportunity for expertise to shine through and to make a mark that will last for years.

Due to the size of the estate, and the specialised role, the successful Estate Garden Manager will require a certain skillset:

– Extensive land management experience required with a minimum of HND in Horticulture and 2 years’ experience at Head Gardener level.
– You will need excellent verbal communication skills, be highly organised, self-motivated and have the ability to work within deadlines to meet business demands.
– Proven experience of managing a team is essential, as is the ability to train, develop and motivate people to achieve the targets that will be set.

In return, the Estate Garden Manager will receive:

– A very competitive remuneration, gratuities, and benefits package.
– Company pension scheme.
– Attractive friends and family room rates within any of the company’s hotels.
– Discounts on food, drinks, and spa treatments.
– Free meals on duty.
– Accommodation can be provided.

This is an interesting, challenging, and rewarding role, but one that should be a real dream for someone with the right passion. In a beautiful luxury estate and part of successful national company whose ethos is luxury, quality, and great guest service, it is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Head Gardener to really make their mark.
