Gardening And Landscaping Support
I\ 'm looking for someone on a part-time casual basis to help me with my small organic gardening business. To begin with I need some help in the next two weeks and then on an ongoing basis. Someone who is available now and for next year would be preferable. I have one casual staff member and I\ 'm looking to add to my staffdue to an increase in work. I\ 've found with past staff that the part-time casual basis of the work fits in well with study schedules.
The work involves:
weeding, sometimes heavy lifting (bags of weeds, bark, soil), lawn mowing and general support to the work that I\ 'm doing in my client\'s gardens around Wellington.
You\ 'd need to be practical, fit,enjoy working outside and getting stuck into physical work all day, be able to follow instructions and communicate well. All my work is on people\ 's private properties, so I need someone who is friendly, courteous, reliable and trustworthy. I\ 'd train you in how to weed, identify plants and other gardening skills.
I provide gardening and safety equipment and wet weather gear. You just need to provide your own gardening clothes and footwear.
Having your own transport is useful (car or bike), as my clients are in a lot of different sites which can be hard to get to by bus. Most are based in Northland, Karori and Newtown.
As the job is part-time casual, the hours fluctuate. There is an estimated minimum of 1 shift of 6 hours per week but sometimes full weeks of work during busier months, so it changes from season to season and depends on weather. Flexibility with hours is needed because of this.
Looking forward to your applications :
