ROYAL BOTANIC GARDEN EDINBURGH AT BENMORE
Horticulturist
Permanent, full-time, based at Benmore Botanic Garden
Starting Salary £19,818 - £21,112
We are looking to recruit a Horticulturist to join our team at Benmore Botanic Garden.
You shall be working within a team of eleven Horticulturists who have responsibility for the
maintenance and development of the diverse, internationally significant plant collections
grown at Benmore. This will include activities such as planting, mowing, weed control, hard
landscaping, winter debris clearance, drainage and removal of Rhododendron ponticum. Part
of your role shall also be propagation and husbandry of plants within the Benmore nursery with
associated activities of maintaining plant database records, application of fertilisers, pesticides
and biological controls, maintaining plant labelling and carrying out stocktakes.
Ideally applicants should hold a recognised horticultural qualification and have relevant
practical experience. You shall have a positive, pro-active personality and be comfortable
working within a team environment but also be self-motivated as there will be periods of lone
working. You should have good horticultural and plant knowledge, be familiar with common
pests and diseases, and have experience of the operation and maintenance of a range of
horticultural machinery. It would also be beneficial for candidates to have both spraying and
chainsaw certification. You should be a good communicator capable of receiving instruction,
providing feed-back and be at ease with garden visitors.

can be downloaded from our website at www.rbge.org.uk/about-us/vacancies

for this post. You should also complete and return an equal opportunities questionnaire.

application has not been shortlisted.

environment and supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce. We encourage applicants from
