Apprentice Taster Days
At Ginkgo Gardens we want to help motivated young people find a profession in the horticultural industry.
There are hundreds of opportunities available – from gardeners to soil scientists and park rangers to plant breeders – and we want to help you to take the first step towards a fulfilling and challenging career.
Our Apprentice Scheme offers you the experience of working as part of the Ginkgo Gardens grounds maintenance team and improves your horticulture knowledge and expertise. All our apprentices are paid at least the minimum wage and many go on to become full time employees with us or other major horticultural businesses.
We are holding a number of Taster Days across Peabody Estates throughout the summer. They provide the chance to meet some of our team and gain hands on experience of what it’s like to work with us. At the end of the day you’ll be given an information pack about how to apply to be one of our Apprentices and also a certificate of participation.
Our first day will be 10 June at Hugh Cubit Centre, Kings Cross from 10am – 2pm. If you’re interested and want to come along please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. Once your place has been confirmed, we’ll be in touch with all the information you need for the day such as what to wear and where to meet us. We hope to see you soon!
