AIM Services are proud to care for our local parks, streetscapes, community facilities and infrastructure in Auckland, for the enjoyment of everyone who lives or visits our region. We are a dynamic team who deliver innovative full facility managements through the quality and experience of our staff.

We are currently looking for an experienced, skilled and motivated Gardener to join our new streetscapes team. In this role, your key responsibilities will be maintaining walkways, sight line clearance, and pest plant control in the streetscape environment. You will also be performing other tasks such as hedge trimming, weed eating, mulching and general garden maintenance activities.

Naturally, you will have passion and flair for Gardening. A strong Health and Safety focus is essential. Previous experience in horticulture, landscaping, or a similar background would be an advantage. Strong people skills and the ability to build and maintain strong positive relationships with key stakeholders would be key determinants to your success in this role.

What will set you apart from the rest is a certificate in Horticulture level 2, 3 or 4. However, we will be keen to look at people with the right experience in the field to provide them future training.  A Grow-safe certificate would be a bonus, but training will be provided for the right applicant.

A full, clean NZ driver's license is a must in this role.
