Clandon Wood Natural Burial is a private cemetery near Guildford, Surrey. Unlike a conventional cemetery the 12 hectare grounds are managed as a nature reserve, there are no headstones and graves are intended to return back to nature. See website www.clandonwood.com
We are looking for a physically fit, enthusiastic individual to work with our current groundsman maintaining the grounds and assisting in digging graves. In addition you will work towards establishing a programme of baseline ecological surveys that will enhance the management of the site as a nature reserve.
The ideal candidate will have a background in practical grounds keeping or UK wildlife conservation or be in relevant training. Along with a solid base in practical land management skills, experience using plant machinery (e.g. 360 excavator) would be desirable and a full UK license is essential. You should be prepared for the physical and outdoor nature of this position that requires you to work in all weathers.
Clandon Wood is a small team and you will need to be a good team player as well as good at interacting with your colleagues and customers.
