Reporting to the Head of Grounds Care, the Gardener will assist in the daily delivery of general grounds care and external area maintenance at Dean Close Schools, Cheltenham and associated nurseries.

The role requires independent and team working in order to provide the following: gardens and grounds in good and safe condition; natural and artificial sports pitches to a high standard throughout the year; maintenance of the equipment necessary to deliver these services.

It is essential to recognise that providing the best possible educational environment in line with the ethos of the Dean Close Foundation is at the heart of this role.
