Over the last 50 years, Capel Manor College has helped thousands of school leavers and adults achieve their dream of working with animals, plants and the environment.  As London’s environmental college, the College plays a vital role in the green agenda for the capital, equipping the next generation of land-based sector workers with the skills and knowledge needed to preserve and protect London’s wildlife, national parks and green spaces.  Capel Manor College is an exciting, innovative and stimulating work environment and we are interested in hearing from applicants who are committed to excellence and improving the lives of others through education, training and skills development.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Team Leader in Horticulture.

We are seeking a Team Leader in Horticulture and Landscaping based at our Enfield Centre.

The post-holder will join the School of Horticulture & Landscaping team, and be responsible for delivering Horticulture & Landscaping courses to full time students across all centres.

The ideal candidate will manage and develop full-time 16 – 18 year curriculum areas, ensuring all courses run smoothly with well-planned co-ordination between delivery staff, assessors, verifiers and students. The Team Leader will ensure all relevant paperwork/records are completed from enrolment and registration of students through to tracking achievement and claiming results.

The successful candidate will lead, manage and develop full-time courses within the parameters set by the Head of School.

We offer a competitive salary and benefits package, as well as the opportunity to work in a supportive, collaborative and beautiful land-based environment.

In order to be considered for the position, an application form must be completed.  CVs will not be accepted.  For further details and to apply, please visit the job vacancies section on the Capel Manor College website.

Please note that the College does not have a sponsorship licence.  We are therefore unable to consider applicants who do not have the right to work in the UK.

We reserve the right to close a position once sufficient suitable applications have been received to form a short list.  Early application is therefore encouraged.

What’s in it for you?

We offer the opportunity to help develop your skills and knowledge in a friendly team environment, plus a range of benefits including generous annual leave, a defined benefit pension scheme (Teacher’s Pension Scheme for Lecturing roles and Local Government Pension Scheme for Support roles), employee assistance programme and full access to Capel Gardens.

Capel Manor College is committed to creating and promoting an equal, diverse and inclusive workforce that enables those working at the College to achieve their full potential.  We are committed to achieving a truly representative workforce and therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community.
