Grounds Maintenance and Landscaping

The place for job security – and a year-round project.

We’re the place for outdoors people, for green-fingered people who want security in their career – whilst doing what they love!

Our landscapers and grounds maintenance team don’t fall foul of the seasonal trends that come with this type of job; far from it, we need you all year round helping keep our communal areas looking lovely – whether that’s cultivating the flowers in the summer, or keeping our walkways free of snow and ice in the winter.

That means year-round benefits too; holidays, sick pay and all the perks you’d expect from working with a Group like ours.

Our team of internal operatives, external operatives, senior external operatives, arborists, contracts managers and office support staff, work together in communities across the country – why not join them?

A view from the team

“I started with Places for People in 1998 and have had 4 different roles, I have loved all my jobs. I started out as a Gardener, I have managed a small team and now I am responsible for all outdoor maintenance for a portfolio of our properties – it’s definitely a challenge but that’s what I enjoy and it gives me an opportunity to use my problem solving skills.  The business has always invested in me and now I am in a management role I want to do the same for my team.

When starting out with the company I never thought that 21 years later I would still be here, that’s thanks to the growth within the organisation, the investment in me from the team, the great people I work with and the fact that I am given a voice. The senior leadership team want to listen to you, they encourage your ideas and want to see you succeed.

I would encourage you to apply for a role with Places for People, you’ll love it.”


"Looking back 21 years ago, I never imagined that I would be doing the job I am now."

Chris Stringer, Contracts Manager, Landscapes
