Do you have an interest in the outdoors? Would you like to be in a role where you can make a real difference to the environment in which Newark and Sherwood residents live?
We are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic, hard-working person to join our Street Scene team as a Gardener. In this role, you will be working with an experienced team who really care about the role they play in making Newark and Sherwood Cleaner, Safer and Greener. You must be prepared to work in all weather conditions, to accept varied duties, to be flexible in your approach to work and have the ability to adapt to changes to your workload.
You will join a team dedicated to maintaining the District Council’s open spaces, including parks, play areas, playing fields and amenity areas, to a high standard. You will have grounds maintenance skills and powered tools and plant operation experience. We are particularly looking for candidates with experience of driving a tractor.
Candidates must also have a full driving licence due to the requirement to drive Council vehicles as part of the role.
This is a full-time role working an average of 37 hours per week over the year. You actual hours will, however, vary depending on the time of year. You will be required to be available for weekend working on a rota basis. Hours worked at the weekend will be part of your standard hours and will not be paid at an enhanced rate.
