Work with us! - Oasis Gardening Service Manager
Our Gardening Service Manager will join our small and supportive team, running a garden maintenance social enterprise that works mainly on the upkeep of residential gardens. The successful candidate will be able to complete a range of gardening tasks to a high standard and support a team of 5 associate gardeners to do the same. As a social enterprise, the role is responsible for overseeing the business development, planning and delivery of contract gardening activity and therefore requires someone with the confidence and experience of generating sales, responding to new customers, budgeting and other administrative duties such as planning rotas and organising.
The gardening business uses its surplus to fund the running of our mental wellbeing gardening groups. As part of weekly activities and to ensure we maintain the link between wellbeing activities and the gardening enterprise, the Gardening Service Manager will run a weekly Monday group at Lowedges until October 2023 and provide cover support for the Oasis Manager to run our main Tuesday wellbeing gardening group.
We are also looking for candidates with an understanding of and commitment to our values.
Oasis Gardening is part of the Sheffield Flourish enterprise family – Sheffield Flourish work collaboratively to build innovative digital and community projects, recognising the untapped strengths of people who’ve experienced mental health issues.
