As the summer seasons approaches, are you looking for a summer role working outdoors in the fresh air; cutting grass, hedge trimming and planting out? Do you enjoy gardening and have experience of using ride on lawn mowers? If this sounds like you then we have a great summer role working in the Taunton area as a Grounds Maintenance Operative. 

We are currently recruiting for Grounds Maintenance Operatives to work for a local organisation based in Taunton, Somerset to provide additional support throughout the Spring and Summer season. You will be working alongside an experienced and close knit team who will provide training and support to help you learn and develop. 

The role will be working as part of the Open Spaces department in the Taunton and Wellington areas looking after and maintaining open spaces and green areas. This position is working on a temporary basis for up to 6 months. 

Key Responsibilities for the Grounds Maintenance Operative will include:
  • Grass Cutting
  • Hedge Trimming
  • Planting out seasonal plants
  • White Line Painting
  • Litter Picking
  • Emptying Bins
  • Cleaning Communal Areas
  • Maintaining and repairing playground equipment
  • Other duties as and when required

If you have previous gardening or grounds maintenance experience either through estate management, local government or private contracts then this could be your next job. We would love to hear from candidates who have experience in using ride-on lawn mowers and gardening tools as well as being customer focus and able to communicate with members of the public with matters of concern. 

A valid and in date UK driving license is required for this role as you may be required to drive company vehicles or your own vehicle to multiple sites and location across the local area. Previous experience driving vehicles with trailers will also be beneficial.

Hours of work are 7am - 4pm Monday to Friday and rate of pay is £10.50 per hour.

This is a temporary contract for the summer season.
