Blackford Education (Schools) Ltd invites self-employed gardening contractors to tender for gardening work at all of its properties, particularly in the Minehead area.
Whilst we do not necessarily require formal qualifications, we do require a very good practical knowledge of all aspects of gardening.
We require approximately a minimum of 24 hours per week February to October and approximately 8 hours per week November to January.
Successful tenderers must be able to work with our Ground Staff team, including other Gardeners, our School Groundsman and our Estate Manager.
In the first instance we invite interested parties to respond informally giving full details of experience, available hours and current hourly rates to our Director:
Blackford Education (Schools) Ltd is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including reference checks with past employers.
This post is identified as being within the scope of Regulated Activity and requires a cleared Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Agency. As such all previous criminal convictions deemed to be expired under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act are required to be declared, this may not negate the applicant from being appointed.
