At a minimum, applicants must have strong experience in the first three objectives, or require minimal training. Previous experience working in a similar role in the nursery industry is necessary. The hourly pay rate will depend upon the experience of the applicant. For a suitably qualified/experienced applicant, there is room for this role to be changed to Retail Coordinator, which will be paid at a higher rate than advertised, subsequent to negotiation.
The role is Tuesday-Friday, 9am-5pm, except for the winter months of June-July, when we close at 4pm. The hours are averaged out at 29/week across the year. There is future scope to extend the role to five days a week if desired. We would expect the successful applicant to be able to work a Saturday shift of four hours every three weeks, as part of a rotating roster.
