The Company

The Role

Reporting to the site Plant Manager the role takes operational responsibility for all day-to-day department duties including:

  • Ensuring a seasonal product offer remains commercially attractive, well maintained and that all aspects of the product, mostly outdoor plants are kept in good condition and are attractively merchandised.
