Careers at Ventnor Botanic Garden

Are you inspired by nature? Passionate about the environment? Do you want to share your love of plants and increase your skillset and botanical knowledge – all whilst helping to create a world-class botanic Garden that contributes to our understanding of the natural world?

Ventnor Botanic Garden is a little different. It’s more than just a ‘garden’. It’s a collection of plantings presented as landscapes or portraits of ecosystems. We show plants as they would be seen in their native, wild environments. This is called landscape immersion. Our subtropical and exotic plant collection is unrivalled. Plants that should be found in protective glasshouses thrive and naturalise out of doors thanks to our mild climate and sheltered setting.

In 2018 we are looking to expand our team…

We are looking for an apprentice to learn alongside our existing apprentice, supported by our team of talented and highly experienced gardeners. Are you hoping to build a career as a gardener and looking for the right environment to start your journey? Enthusiasm, energy and a strong work ethic are all that’s needed. Get in touch and find out more.

We need experienced gardeners who are able to work in a commercial environment both within VBG itself and supporting our VBG@Home service. Working as part of the team you’ll be dedicated, hard-working and thrive on the challenges of the ever-changing face of the Garden and climate. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch to discuss the possibilities.
