Current Vacancies:

Interior Landscaping Technician – Stewarts Interior Landscaping (Wimborne)

Do you like plants and driving? We are an established company providing interior planted containers and beds to create a pleasant working environment in offices, hotels, showrooms, restaurants and other commercial

properties. We have a couple of vacancies for enthusiastic, energetic, flexible and active technicians to join our busy team.

Your position would include driving a Stewarts van, mainly across Dorset and Hampshire, to visit regular clients and look after their indoor plants in office environments and other commercial properties.

You will visit and maintain plant displays on allocated rounds on set days. During the visits you will care and service the plants with their requirements, including watering, cleaning, pruning, replacing with new plants, topping up compost, tidying etc. This will involve some heavy lifting.

Experience is not necessary as we will give you thorough training with the skills and knowledge required to complete the job, however you do need to be a confident driver and navigator, with a full and clean UK driving licence with an ability to organise your own time as you will be visiting a good selection of premises every day, so previous experience in a driving job will be just as useful as a horticultural background. This position requires a flexible team player with a positive attitude who is organised, friendly and happy to be an ambassador for the company. You must be able to work on your own initiative. As well as your regular clients, you will assist with deliveries/one-off jobs from time to time with the team. There are 2 posts available:

Post one – Permanent full time (40 hours per week).

Post Two – Maternity Cover for 1 year from April/May 2017 (24 hours per week) 

The core hours for both vacancies are 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with 30 minutes unpaid break, however sometimes we have to or choose to start and finish the day earlier.

Rate of pay for both vacancies is Ł7.40 per hour (Contact us for pay rates if under 21)

We offer staff discount after probationary period, contributive pension, uniform, free parking for your own car and a pleasant working environment. If you wish to apply for this vacancy then please send your C.V. and/or completed application form together with a covering letter to:
