At Stewarts our plants matter more than anything. We want to be the best plant retailers ever, offering great quality plants in a really friendly environment.

An opportunity has arisen at Stewarts Christchurch to join our company and manage our Plant Department on a full time basis, working an average of 39 hours per week – Monday to Friday and alternate weekends with a day off during the week.

We are looking for a hardworking individual to work in our fast paced and busy Garden Centre where plant knowledge and retail experience is key and the ability to work under pressure comes as standard.

In order to be considered for this role you will need a strong garden retail background and a passion for sales. Horticultural knowledge is a must as you will be expected to advise customers on their purchases. The ability to lead a strong and experienced team and delegate is also essential as well as being engaging with good communication skills as this is a customer facing role. Candidates will have a hands on approach for displaying and maintaining stock, but you will also require computer knowledge due to internal systems used for orders, which will be done on a weekly basis, so good planning, timekeeping and organisational skills are essential. A forklift licence would be a great advantage but is not essential as the above skills and experience are far more important and training can be provided for the non-essential skills.

In return we offer a competitive salary, uniform, free parking, contributive pension scheme, generous staff discount scheme after probationary period, great training opportunities and a pleasant working environment.
