Lead Gardener Volunteer

  • Location: Russell House, Fell Greave Road, Huddersfield, HD2 1NH

The person that we need for this role will take responsibility for building a reliable team of volunteers to maintain our grounds throughout the year (although May – October will be the busiest time). You will need to have an excellent knowledge of gardening/landscaping or a great desire for gardening maintenance and be able to produce a garden maintenance plan which zones areas of the grounds in terms of priority/needs/season/planting/cutting etc. throughout the year.

You will need excellent organisational skills and be able to co-ordinate and manage the full gardening team, ensuring that they are well directed, motivated and proud of the work that they do at Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.

The Lead Gardener will need to work closely with our Estates and Facilities Assistant and existing teams to ensure that the gardening service runs well, is reliable and sustainable and that all health & safety requirements are fulfilled.
