A bit about Green’s of Haddington

In the last 25 years, we have built a sound foundation to this business.  We are proud to have almost 400 of the largest estates in the UK as our customers. Their businesses are varied, typically with enterprises which included farming, forestry, property maintenance, gamekeeping and fishing, open houses, shops, tea-rooms & restaurants, caravan parks, swimming pools, pubs, livery, gardens and much more.

We have declined to become involved in the building industry (outside of estate maintenance departments) but there is scope to develop this.

Our business has grown through the development of a simple style of presentation and by providing a high-quality personal service.

Most new business now comes through referrals from satisfied customers. We need someone who can build on this and develop good relationships with our customers so that they will continue to promote us.

This is a great opportunity to join a firm that offers flexible working in some of the most beautiful environments throughout the country with the opportunity of earning good remuneration.

It would be great if you had experience in the following: Agriculture, Horticulture, Countryside, Environment, Environmental, HSE, Health & Safety, HSQE, Rural, Estate, Farming, Country

If you feel you have the skills and experience to be considered for this role, please apply today.

No agencies please.
