Life at The Garden Barn:
The Garden Barn is the hub of The Oxfordshire Gardener. Under the eaves of this gorgeously designed converted barn we gather to exchange news, pore over plans and set the day’s agenda. Set overlooking our own courtyard garden, complete with raised vegetable beds, flower beds and seasonal container displays, the view opens out beyond the garden gates into the rolling meadows and wooded ridges, making it a truly inspirational place to meet in the mornings or work on training days.
The company provides a training budget for each staff member as well as our own in-house training and development plans tailored to each individual’s specific areas of specialism, interest and development goals.
Employees are provided with 22 days holiday + bank holidays, pension, company uniform and PPE.
The company is continuing to develop their portfolio and now would be a very exciting time to join our expanding team of intrepid gardeners, managing some of the most exceptional gardens in the area.
