As a Gardener at a Barchester care home, you’ll help create the kind of stimulating environment that enables us to deliver quality, person-centred care. By maintaining our grounds to the highest standards, you’ll ensure our home always makes a great first impression, and that our outside areas can be fully enjoyed by residents looking for some fresh air or a change of scenery. Your role as a Gardener will involve looking after our equipment and structures like fencing, keeping our grounds safe and tidy (including clearing any snow and ice in the winter), and planting a range of flowers, shrubs and trees. Once a year, you’ll be able to showcase your talents in our fiercely-contested ‘Barchester in Bloom’ competition.

If you have a passion for the great outdoors, you could be perfect for the role of Gardener at Barchester. One of your key priorities will be making sure your work fits around the needs of our residents, so a patient and empathetic approach is key. As well as general gardening experience, we’ll also need to see a good understanding of health and safety and the ability to use garden treatment chemicals in line with COSHH regulations. Trustworthy and professional with a can-do approach, you’re a great team player who will take a genuine interest in the lives and wellbeing of our residents.

As well as a competitive salary, Barchester offers one of the best rewards packages in the care sector. Your generous benefits would include:

• Free learning and development
• Automatic enrolment into our profit share scheme
• A range of holiday, retail and leisure discounts
• Unlimited access to our Refer a Friend bonus scheme

If you’d like to use your attention to detail and people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
