Green Team Programme Manager
Reference number: 558/GTPM
Location: Groundwork London offices and project sites across London
Contract: Permanent
Hours: 37.5 per week
Salary: circa £35k

Over the last 20 years, Groundwork’s Green Teams have provided hundreds of unemployed Londoners with their first taste of work in grounds maintenance and horticulture. Under the tutelage of our Green Team Supervisors they have successfully delivered award winning landscaping and maintenance contracts throughout London.

In 2019, our programme will grow from strength to strength as our Green Teams will be at the very heart of the delivery of several of Groundwork’s employment programmes and our newest landscaping and sustainable urban drainage projects. We are seeking a Green Team Programme Manager who will lead and manage the programme’s activities that will be crucial to the success of these projects.

You will:

  • have proven experience in costing & winning landscaping and grounds maintenance contracts. And in successfully delivering those contracts through directly employed teams and sub-contractors.
  • have the ability to work closely with our in-house team of Landscape Architects, delivering design build solutions for our clients.
  • demonstrate a willingness to put our trainees at the heart of our service and support their progression into careers in the industry.

You will be highly organised and able to work towards targets and deadlines, while managing your own workload. You’ll be supported in your role by key staff within the Employment and Landscaping teams.
