Lambourne End Centre are looking for a Grounds Maintenance Worker to assist in the maintenance and development of the Centre’s grounds, buildings, facilities and equipment.

The Centre is a fantastic 54 acre site in south west Essex which is full of opportunity. The Centre’s scenic location in a rural setting, yet on the doorstep of East London’s urban fringe creates a unique resource. The Centre boasts residential accommodation and training facilities, outdoor adventure activities, a garden project and a working farm with dedicated environmental areas. These are used to generate a wide range of programmes which promote and deliver personal development opportunities for young people, especially those at risk or struggling in traditional mainstream environments. All the programmes are designed to encourage team building, problem solving and communication skills, as well as build confidence and raise aspirations.

Suitable candidates should have: 

  • Experience of maintaining an estate or site
  • The ability to relate well to children, young people and adults
  • Good understanding of health and safety
  • The ability to work well as part of a team
  • The ability to motivate, enthuse and organise young people and adults
  • The ability to work well under pressure
  • The ability to adapt quickly and confidently to new situations
  • A proactive, “can do” attitude
  • A current driving license

The post is based on a 35 hour week, but will involve flexible working, including some rotary evening and weekend work taken as time off in lieu.

Due to the nature of the work, the post will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

Please download an application pack from the website or email the Centre to request the application pack: [email protected] - please note that CVs will not be accepted in application for this position. 

The closing date for applications is Monday 4th March 2024 at 9am, and interviews for shortlisted candidates will be held on Thursday 14th March 2024.
