Wondering how to become a professional gardener? Fantastic Services might just be able to help you…
Company CEO and Co-Founder Rune Sovndahl recently had a chance to talk to Startups.co.uk about what we look for in recruits for our gardening services. When you’re starting out, it’s always a good idea to know what companies hiring gardeners are looking for.
Fantastic Services employs a lot of people who wanted to go into business for themselves, but who didn’t want to spend the years required to build up a huge customer base. When you’re starting out for yourself in the gardening industry, you’ll probably work for a lot of smaller domestic clients before being able to get larger commercial or council work years down the line. It’s a lot of work, but the rewards can be worth it.
But if you’re looking to find a job as a gardener, it can be useful to know what companies are looking for when hiring their staff. As well as providing professional home and office services, Fantastic Services employs hundreds of highly skilled and experienced gardening specialists, working with clients across the world. So how do we go about choosing our experts?
What are we looking for in our gardeners?
First of all, you’ll need to like working outdoors. Gardening jobs will throw lots of different weathers at you. If you’re irritated by a bit of rain, this might not be the career for you! More than many other careers, you’ll need to have some love for the work to succeed as a gardener. Being fit and healthy will help you too, as will a bit of knowledge.
This doesn’t mean you can just have read through a few gardening websites. You should have some basic skills – how to engineer and work with different landscapes, for example.
How do I become a professional gardener?
Fantastic Services only ever sends experts gardeners to complete the jobs we’re booked for. They’re always equipped with the best gardening tools, and they’ll know that they’ve got a support team behind them ready to assist.
