Bath and North East Somerset’s award winning Parks’ team are seeking to recruit temporary maintenance staff to help keep the area’s award-winning parks and green spaces looking beautiful over the summer months.

Working as part of our grounds maintenance team you will help maintain parks, open spaces and cemeteries within the district. You will be required to use a range of gardening tools including larger horticultural equipment.

You must be physically fit, able to work unsupervised with a good attention to detail and must hold a Category C1 driving licence.

If you'd like to join our passionate, enthusiastic team we'd love to hear from you. It's part of the job description that you're physically fit and prepared to work outdoors in all weather.

The successful candidate will work within the Parks and Bereavement Services team and be based in Royal Victoria Park or Haycombe Cemetery, Bath with travel between parks and green spaces across the district.

If you come to work for us and there is a suitable vacancy at the end of the year then there may be the opportunity to be considered for a permanent role with the Council.
