Retail Horticultural Manager

Posted: 24 Nov 2021
Location: Marlow
Company: Straight Line Retail Recruitment
Salary: £25 - 27k

The Person

Is there anything better than working outdoors? Helping customers by offering your knowledgeable and professional advice and developing a team of people by imparting your experience? Winning the lottery maybe but then you'd probably use the money to open your own garden centre anyway!

You get the idea; you're one of those people that love what they do. And why not? You spend all day working with a product you care deeply about and you want to share your passion and knowledge with others. That's extremely rewarding but you have most of that already, so why move somewhere else?

The Role

This job has a lot going for it but most importantly, this is all about working with a company that shares your passion. The plant area is yours to run and you'll have plenty of freedom to make decisions on range, working with some suppliers and growers as well as the buying team, and layout, creating inspiring displays and maintaining quality. You'll also lead and develop a small team of like-minded individuals who'll benefit from your plant knowledge. That's something to get your teeth into and something you could look back on with real pride. On top of that, it pays pretty well and the bonus is actually achievable.

The Company

A household name in the sector, they've been doing what they've been doing for a long time but are always open to new ideas and always looking for ways to grow and improve. They're well known and very well respected, financially rock-solid and looking to the future with plenty of optimism.
