Do you have a passion for the outdoors and getting your hands dirty? Do you have an eye for detail and a green thumb?

The Colonel’s Homestead lakeside gardens are renowned for their beauty, and our Walter Peak Grounds Team hold the enviable position of working in them each and every day. This is a full time, fixed term position starting October until the end of April, 2020 which means this is your opportunity to assist in setting the scene for Remarkable Customer Experiences for the Spring and Summer period.

Excellent knowledge of horticulture including a good working knowledge of different plant types, preparing seedbeds, plant maintenance and pruning is essential in this role.

We’re looking for someone who is passionate and enthusiastic about flora and fauna, has a solid work ethic and takes pride in their work. You will also be required to help out with the day to day odd-jobs associated with running and maintaining a property of this size.

What can we offer you?

  • Daily commute onboard the iconic TSS Earnslaw
  • Working for Real Journeys gives you the chance to get out and about on our legendary products across some of New Zealand’s most stunning locations!
