Streetscape, which offers apprenticeships to long-term unemployed 18-25-year-olds, is now expanding after featuring in the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph.
Co-founder Guy Watts said he wants to add a senior landscape gardener and trainer to his team of eight, based in Camberwell, south London, and to expand Streetscape across the capital and the Home Counties.
The practice tackles domestic landscape jobs and its apprentices work towards an NVQ level 2 qualification in work-based horticulture. Watts and the scheme's co-founder James Gubb launched Streetscape to tackle the lack of jobs and training for young people.
The new recruit will train and supervise apprentices and work on hardand soft-landscape projects.
"We are not worried about (apprentices') qualifications, experience or past problems," said Watts. "But we are looking for a strong desire to work in an outdoor trade, willingness to learn and a strong team ethic."
Streetscape was made a secondary contractor at last year's RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show on the Gold Medal-winning CoppaFeel! Garden.
