Wyevale Garden Centres

Wyevale Garden Centres, the UK's largest garden centre group, is recruiting applicants for their 2015 intake of horticultural apprentices.

Together with Pershore College of Horticulture (part of Warwickshire College) we've designed a completely bespoke apprenticeship programme, to give you the skills to work and progress in horticultural retail.

There's nowhere better to start your career.

What does the programme involve?

The apprenticeship programme combines a blended learning approach with practical work at Wyevale Garden Centres. You'll do your knowledge-based learning online while college-based master classes at Pershore will help you develop your practical skills. You'll put what you've learned into practice with us, in a Wyevale Garden Centre.

And if you successfully complete the programme, you'll obtain a City and Guilds Work Based Diploma in Horticulture Level 2 – the key to your future career.


Your apprenticeship will last 20 months and you'll be paid the minimum wage based on your age. Every other month, you'll do a two-day block release at college, where your food and accommodation will be provided.

We're always looking for the best people and there will be the possibility of a full time position with Wyevale Garden Centres for the right candidate when your apprenticeship is completed.

If you are committed, enthusiastic and enjoy hard work, this is a golden opportunity to earn while you learn, and begin a potentially great career with the UK's leading garden centre group.

Who are we looking for?

We want people who are passionate about their job, the Wyevale Garden Centre brand, and care about our customers. You should:

  • Be inspiring – suggest new ideas, ask questions, spot new opportunities.
  • Be helpful – listen to colleagues and customers and have a can-do attitude.
  • Take ownership – be responsible, jump-in and find ways around problems.
  • Be passionate – love working with us and be positive every day in everything you do.
