Garden Staff Recruitment Relies on Social Media.

If you have ever searched for garden jobs in the Horticutural industry, either as a potential employer or employee? Then you will be aware that the demand for professional gardeners has reached unpresedented highs.

Great news for experienced gardeners who can pick and choose from numerous private estates and gardens throughout the UK. Recruitment agencies are reporting low rates of applicants for even the highest rated vacancies, even lower responses for under gardeners and maintenance staff.

In an attempt to reach a wider audience, agencies and private advertisers alike are reaching out to Social Media utilising sites like Linkedin, Twitter and even Facebook to promote their news.
