Job Description

We’re recruiting for a grounds maintenance operative based in Portsmouth on a full time, permanent basis, working 39 hours per week. Whilst we’ll try to keep you local, there’ll be times where you’ll be expected to travel to and work from our other sites across Hampshire. You’ll either have use of a company van for this travel, or you’ll buddy up with another operative.

As a grounds maintenance operative, you’ll carry out a high standard of grounds maintenance. This’ll include grass cutting, hedge cutting, border maintenance, weed control, leaf clearance and low-level tree work to communal land on allocated sites. You’ll complete daily work records for your sites when your Team Leader is absent, and make sure your hand-held device is always charged and switched on during working hours.

Candidate Requirements

You’ll need a full current driving licence to be able to drive a 3,500kg commercial vehicle. You’ll be knowledgeable and experienced in commercial grounds maintenance work and the equipment, machines and materials that will be used in this line of work.

This role is subject to a basic disclosure check/satisfactory driving licence check.
