Salary: �20,000 - �25,000 (Subject to experience)

Location: Southeast

A polite, friendly and customer focused Junior Landscaper is required to work as part of a team carrying out the installation of quality garden buildings. Our client's customers expect the very best in outdoor living. Previous experience in landscaping is desirable, but not required. Our client is focused on a candidate who shows a great attitude towards working with people, customer service and their own learning. Training in hard and soft landscaping techniques, bricklaying and carpentry will be provided. Applicants should be prepared to work as part of team of 2-3 people, but where required and on a project by project basis, should be self-disciplined and able to work on their own, once sufficient training levels have been met. This is a perfect opportunity for someone with a 'can do attitude' who is looking for a new career.

Our client expects the successful applicant to uphold the company's brand values and demonstrate a positive attitude towards delivering customer satisfaction. You must also act as a key point of contact on site, liaising with colleagues based in Head Office to ensure service excellence at all times.

Applications from ex-military personnel (Royal Air Force, Royal Navy, British Army and Royal Marines) will be particularly relevant for this role and are strongly encouraged.

Key responsibilities:

* To significantly contribute individually and as part of the team to help achieve project objectives.
* Consistently maintain professionalism and respect on site while liaising with the client where necessary to ensure full customer satisfaction at all times.
* Liaise with team members and the Project Administrator to ensure new projects are planned and carried out in full.
* Ability to work on site to drawings and instructions received from both the Landscape Architect and Project Administrator (subject to training from client).
* Ensure Health and Safety is at the forefront of everything you do, complying with UK legal requirements by acting responsibly at all times.
* Show respect for company supplied vehicles, ensuring they are well maintained at all times to portray a professional public image.

Skills and Personal Attributes

Essential:

* Interest in continuous personal development on-site and on the job.
* Display sound practical and organisational skills to ensure all projects are completed on time and to the highest possible standard.
* Ability to build strong relationships with colleagues, particularly site colleagues and key office staff.
* Display job interest, self-motivation, attention to detail, accuracy and a positive mind set at all times for the benefit of both the customer and your fellow work colleagues.
* Show flexibility with regard to working hours, particularly when under pressure to meet site deadlines.
* Be able to resolve problems quickly and effectively as and when they arise.
* Full driving license and own transport to and from work.

Desirable:

* Hard and soft landscaping experience.
* Carpentry or bricklaying experience.
* Job related qualifications.
* Experience of installing outdoor kitchens and outdoor living spaces.
