Grounds Person - Arundel, West Sussex

Location: THE PIG in the South Downs, Madehurst, West Sussex

Salary: £11.10 - £11.44 per hour, plus service charge.

Hours: 24-32 hours per week, plus overtime as/when available.

A rare opportunity have become available at THE PIG in the South Downs! Join us and be apart of the team taking care of our hotel grounds and two-acre vineyard with traditional sparkling varieties and a few experimental rows.

The role of Grounds Person will focus on the maintenance of our grounds, including some responsibilities within our vineyard. As our gardens and grounds are open to our guests, you must be confident to interact with them daily. We are home to pigs, chickens and quails, so some animal husbandry may be required.

This role will work alongside our existing grounds and garden team which is made up of two parts; the kitchen garden team who are solely responsible for the productive garden spaces and the grounds team who look after the lawns, trees, and maintenance of any formal borders. Both teams work harmoniously on all projects and events supporting each other in all that we do.

Responsibilities includes, but not limited to:

  • Use and maintenance of a range of tools (both mechanical and manual), these include strimmer's/brush cutters, mowers, leaf blowers, spades, forks, secateurs, shears, rakes, etc.
  • Tying vines & support with harvesting.
  • Pruning
  • Weeding and watering.
  • Driving of ride on mowers and utility vehicles (E.G John Deere Gator)
  • Tractor driving, as/ when required.
  • Animal management, including feeding, collecting eggs, cleaning housing, and changing bedding.
  • General estate repairs, such as fencing and minor carpentry tasks
  • Interacting with guests.

Experience in a similar role, plus PA1, PA3 and PA6, usage and maintenance of garden machinery such as petrol strimmer's and mowers are preferred but not essential. Full Clean Driving licence is required.

We are dedicated to making THE PIGs an inspiring, exciting, and fun place to work and in return for your hard work you can expect something a little different:

  • Numerous retail discounts via our Perkbox Scheme.
  • Discounted room rates and complimentary staff stays across our group.
  • Discounted food, beverage, and spa days across our group.
  • 28 days holiday rising by 1 day each year for the first 5 years.
  • We are committed to providing craft and accredited training to all staff.
  • Meals on duty

Robin Hutson - CEO, Homegrown Hotels: 'As with all good hospitality, THE PIG is fundamentally about people; it's the personalities, passion, knowledge, and skills of the people we work with that somehow converge to creating THE PIG experience'.
