Do you love gardening?  Do you love being outside, enjoying nature and the changing of the seasons?  Do you need a flexible, term time job? Would you like the opportunity to study for a recognised gardening qualification?  If you can answer ‘Yes’ to all these questions then this job could be the one for you! 

Carty Services is a small, award winning, garden and grounds maintenance company based in Warwick.  We look after the grounds of apartment blocks, residential homes, schools and businesses all over South Warwickshire and the West Midlands.  Our reputation for family friendly, flexible working practices has attracted local awards as well as a prestigious Working Mums Top Employer award.  We are also proud to be members of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI).

From April 2019 we need a keen assistant gardener to join the team of both part and full time gardeners.  You will be based in Warwick and Leamington Spa but you will also be visiting many of our other sites in the surrounding areas.  25-30 hours per week during term time, the job can be flexible to your needs and you will also have December to February free to pursue other interests.

Don’t worry if you have not done much gardening before, we value enthusiasm over experience and initial hands-on training will be given.  After passing a trial period you will be given the opportunity to study for an apprenticeship which will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to pursue a career in horticulture.
