At CGP we obsess about high standards across the whole company. We have four sites in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District and our grounds are just as important to us as our educational products. As one of our Skilled Gardeners, you’ll primarily be based at our 40-acre head office estate, but we’ll expect you to be flexible and willing to work on whichever site needs your skill and expertise.

You’ll be looking after our extensive private gardens so you’ll be horticulturally trained with impressive plant knowledge and a great eye for detail. You may have relevant qualifications already but we’re just as interested in people who take real pride in their work and are qualified by experience.

Comfortable directing others and leading by example, you’ll be organised and disciplined in your approach to everyday tasks. You’ll also need to be:

  • Self-motivated
  • Driven by providing great customer service
  • An effective communicator and a good team player
  • Flexible — happy to do whatever’s needed
  • Reliable and approachable

Given the nature of our sites, a driving licence is essential.


For more information please visit or give us a call. To apply, email us your CV (and details of your current salary) with a covering letter telling us why you’re the right person for the job.
