We have an excellent opportunity within our Grounds Department for a Grounds Support Operative.  Previous experience of working within a grounds maintenance environment is desirable but not essential.

This is a physically demanding role therefore you must understand the importance of Health & Safety at Work Regulations.  You must be able to work outdoors in all weather conditions.
