This is a great opportunity if you are looking for a varied role outdoors as part of a historic estate. We are looking for a hands-on, practical person with a ‘can do’ attitude to join our estates team. We are a small team with a lot of ground to cover. Hestercombe’s landscape is extremely varied and so too are the different types of work carried out by the team. You will be involved in all sorts of activities across the estate from garden maintenance, countryside management, tree work, and general maintenance of the estate including machinery and Hestercombe house. The job is very physical, outdoors in all weathers and all year round. Team work skills are essential and you will also be supporting a team of garden volunteers, as well as interacting with the public. You will need a current chainsaw licence and some experience of countryside management will be useful.
