APPLY NOW TO BECOME THE NEW GARDEN CLUB LEADER FOR THE 2010 SEASON

We are seeking an enthusiastic and self-motivated person with a passion for getting people (of all ages) gardening and enjoying plants. They must also have an interest in and empathy with the innovative vision for the garden. The successful candidate will be a local advocate for the project and must be a self-organiser as they will work largely independently at the site. They should be prepared to work flexibly: They may perhaps structure themed activities for certain days, or otherwise redefine the Club’s sessions to meet the demands of the site users and the ambitions of the project. They must be available throughout the project period at the agreed Club opening times (cover is available for up to 2 weeks absence by prior arrangement). The Leader will be responsible to and employed directly by the Friends of Abbey Gardens who work closely with the artists and London Borough of Newham to realise the project.

Deadline for applications – 5th of March 2010
Announcement of shortlist – 8th of March 2010
interview date – 10th of March 2010
Immediate start preferable
