Manpower is currently looking for Gardner/Groundsman to join an established, well-regarded company in Harlow who provides housing repairs, maintenance, facilities management and environmental services.

The role of the gardener involves using a variety of tools and monitoring the health of plants and trees while maintaining the landscape. This includes working within local parks, residential areas that are too small for ride-on lawn mowers, and streets.

Some key responsibilities would be:

  • Mowing, edging, and maintaining lawns.
  • Pruning and trimming trees, shrubs, and hedges.
  • Planting and maintaining flowers, trees, and shrubs.
  • Operating and maintaining grounds-keeping equipment such as mowers, trimmers, blowers, and other tools.
  • Keeping pathways, parking lots, and other outdoor areas clean and free of debris.
  • Ensuring that all grounds are safe and aesthetically pleasing for visitors and users.


  • Ability to perform physically demanding tasks such as lifting, digging, and operating heavy machinery.
  • Endurance to work long hours outdoors in various weather conditions.
  • Hold a full UK Driver's license.
  • Previous experience in landscaping or maintenance is desirable, however, if you have gardening experience as a hobby and can use various equipment, this will also be considered...
  • Proficiency in using and maintaining grounds-keeping equipment such as lawnmowers, trimmers, blowers, and irrigation systems.
  • Keen eye for detail to ensure that grounds are maintained to high standards.

The hourly rate for this role is £13.09. The working hours are Monday to Thursday, 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Starting in July, the hours will change to Monday to Thursday, 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM, and Friday, 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM.
