Here at Grayshaw & Yeo, our staff know first-hand how committed the company is to professional development, with regular training days and ongoing support. So it comes as no surprise that many of our gardeners are also career changers – arriving at a horticultural career after beginning their working life in other sectors.
The RHS are well-aware that career changers coming into horticulture from other professions bring a wealth of transferable skills and new ways of looking at things, as well as a rich depth of experience gardening in their own plots. Indeed the nation’s gardening guru – Monty Don – is himself a career changer, having come to a gardening career via jewellery design and broadcasting.
So, for all you ‘budding’ gardeners out there (forgive the pun – terrible I know) – those who’d like to know more about the broad possibilities involved in working with plants – you’ll not want to miss the RHS Horticultural Careers Day on 1st October. There will be behind the scenes tours and hands-on workshops, as well as the chance to ask questions and network.
