Trainee Grounds Person

We have an immediate, full-time position available for a Trainee Grounds Person to assist in the maintenance of cemeteries, providing a presentable environment for friends and families.



As a trainee grounds person / gardener, you will work as part of a team to maintain the historical grounds and ensure they are well kept for friends and family of the deceased. There is no contact with the deceased in this role but there is a requirement to be comfortable working in this type of environment.



This role would suit someone with an interest in horticulture, gardening, or grounds maintenance. You may have limited experience in the role – do not worry, we will provide all necessary training & guidance with the opportunity for further development with qualifications in the future.



What you will need to do:




  • Take care of the grounds, keeping them maintained and presentable

  • Supporting with the creation of memorial gardens and plots to client specification

  • Managing the day to day needs of the grounds as part of a close-knit team

  • You may from time to time meet friends and relatives of the deceased, so empathy, respect and courtesy is required

  • Flexibility to take on additional crematoria duties for which full training will be given.



What we will need from you:   




  • Good communication skills

  • Hard working and willing to apply yourself




  • Good attention to detail

  • Comfortable working in a team or carrying out tasks by yourself

  • Horticultural experience is an advantage but not required – the key is a willingness to learn, develop your skills and undertake training courses



Benefits:




  • 22 days holiday plus 8 days bank holiday

  • Full training is provided

  • Prospect of growth and career development

     



During the recruitment and onboarding process we will be adhering to the social distancing guidance from the government.
