Seasonal Groundsworkers & Gardeners

Bordering the Thames in Fulham and set in 42 acres of magnificent grounds, The Hurlingham Club is a green oasis of tradition and international renown and is recognised throughout the world as one of Britain’s greatest private members’ clubs.

The Grounds Team are part of the Estates Department and are made up of 26 professional and highly motivated individuals who pride themselves on the maintenance and upkeep of the prestigious grounds. The grounds of the Club include ten croquet lawns, thirty grass tennis courts, a cricket ground, a nine-hole golf course, two bowling greens and over a hectare of flowers, shrubs and ornamental lawns. It is through the efforts of the Grounds team that the Club’s members are rewarded year on year with award winning sports surfaces and stunning season changing flowerbeds. As a seasonal you will work a 39 hour week, Monday to Friday (plus regular weekend overtime, compulsory but not guaranteed). The hourly rate will be £10.75 per hour. Your role includes supporting the permanent team in a wide range of duties, taking care of either the sports turf surfaces and event set up or the gardens around the Club.

Candidates will embody our Club values; excellence, prudence, integrity, courtesy. The ideal candidates will be enthusiastic, reliable, hard-working and enjoy working outdoors in all weather conditions. The successful candidate will be a team player but also able to work with minimal supervision. Previous grounds-related experience is desirable, but not essential as appropriate training will be provided.

Our benefits include a prorated holiday and Bank Holiday entitlement, life assurance, sick pay scheme, meals on duty, onsite parking, uniform, along with other discretionary benefits.
