About the job

Have you always enjoyed working in the garden, determine to get healthy and lush looking lawn that transform the aesthetic appeal of the properties and truly compliments the exterior of your home? Well, it’s your chance to bring it to a professional level.

Currently we are looking for sod layers in Nothern Netherlands. Experience in garden construction/landscape is an advantage, but we are also open to candidates who are ready to master a new skill. However, good physical condition and body strength are very important for this job, especially when you’re busy with it the whole day.

The gardens are usually 15-300 metersquare at individual’s properties. It’s quite heavy work, since you’ll have to rake the dirt ground, manually move the sods, roll and cut the sods to an ideal measurement. Everything goes fast at work! But when the job is finished, the result is always beautiful and you get to see satisfied clients on a daily basis.

You’ll be working with a small team of 5 people. So the communication is very important. It’s a team of hard working people, among which high initiative is expected. There are long-hours involved each day and the actual working hours are around 8-10 hours. In the morning, you’ll have to drive 15 min from our accommodation to the company, where you’ll be picked up with a small bus. Your traveling time in the bus varies from 1-4 hours per day, depending on where the clients have placed orders. If you have to sit in the bus for more than 1 hour, then the travel time after the first hour will be paid.

In the morning of a working day you’ll be expected at the company between 04:30 – 06:00. After work you’ll be brought back to the location around 17:00 – 20:00. The work planning will be discussed between you and the team in advance.

In short, this is a vacancy from which the ability to work under pressure, physical strength and flexibility are required. But at the end of the day, it also gives you the satisfaction of fulfillment.

The project starts from 28th March and will last until the end of June or July 2022. After the project, it's possible to continue the cooperation with Abiant EU Service.
