The Royal Horticultural Society has been the force behind gardening for more than 200 years, and today our aim is to enrich everyone’s life through plants and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place. Our Gardens are a key part of this vision, and are amongst the finest in the country, showcasing the best in horticulture, as well as being centres of learning and major visitor destinations, visited by over 2 million visitors a year.

The position will be both challenging and rewarding and we are looking for an exceptional person to become the driving force behind continued operational and commercial success of the garden.

You will spearhead a culture of positive improvement, with a ‘can do’ attitude and motivational leadership style.

You will have a keen interest in horticulture, experience in working with visitors and customers in a similar or related environment, worked within a senior management team on strategic planning and have a wealth of ideas on attracting and delighting visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Experience of working on HLF funded projects would be an advantage.
