Nursery Workers

Wykeham Mature Plants is a large plant Nursery based in Wykeham near Scarborough growing mature trees and shrubs for the trade and public. Established for over 40 years and part of the Dawnay Estates the company offers a generous pension scheme, 28 days holiday including bank holidays, sick pay, corporate uniform, and full outdoor weatherproof kit.

We are currently looking for 2 full time Nursery workers. 

About the role

Our busiest time of the year is winter, so this really is an outdoor all-weather role. It requires regular heavy lifting so excellent manual handling skills are essential. Experience in driving Tractors or any other heavy plant machinery is desirable. Training will be given where required as driving machinery is required regularly. Some knowledge of plants is desirable and an advantage as you will be required to learn plant identification to fulfil your duties, again training can be given.

Any certificates for spraying, PA1, PA6, brush cutters or hedge cutters all desirable.

We offer a planting service so you may be asked at times to plant away.

We are looking for a hardworking, punctual, and reliable individual to join our friendly team. Your own transport is essential due to the location of the Nursery.
