The Opportunity

We are seeking experienced casual Landscapers to create the beautiful commercial and residential backyards we're known for in the Otago area (Queenstown).

As a Casual Landscaper you will work as part of a team and do everything from site set-out to planting, timber work, lawn care and much more. The responsibilities are dependent on the project work that we have available, which means no two days are the same!

  • Health & Safety - you make sure you and your workmates go home unharmed every day.
  • Teamwork - our landscapers work in teams of 2-5 and support each other. You'll be an active team member, by having each other's back, while having all the support from the Team Leader in maintaining great relationships with clients.

If you enjoy spending your days outdoors and getting involved in practical work on an ongoing casual basis, then this is the job for you!
