HYBRID / DYNAMIC WORKING

Dynamic Working is an embedded part of our work culture at Scotsdales. So much so, that our dynamic working policies are written in to the terms and conditions of your employment contract. 

For us, Dynamic Working is not just about where you work, but also when and how you work… and live. No two people have the same expectations at work and home, so our policies provide the flexibility to make sure you have the freedom and trust to work with your teams in ways that meet the needs of the business, and your own. 

Not all our roles allow home-working due to the physical or security-related aspects of the role. Wherever possible though, hybrid working is accomodated by agreement with your line manager. 

Depending on your level in the business, you could have options of paid overtime or dynamic leave too. Please note that specific arrangements vary by role level and business area, so please discuss with your recruiter when applying. 

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

Scotsdales is a family run business and we are proud to help the advancement in skills and development for all team members both for the benefit of Scotsdales and the individual. As your role develops and opportunities arise, we will always advocate for strategic learning with both internal and external teaching sources.

Our management team are all happy to support and advise wherever possible. Personal ambitions may outlive your time with Scotsdales, but if mutually beneficial then we are happy to help with your personal progression towards your goals.

A large part of our management team began their Scotsdales journey in different roles and have worked their way up with the aide and support of the company. Scotsdales will always be proud to promote growth and development.

MORE THAN A JOB

“Quote here from Emma.”

Emma P, People & Culture Manger at Scotsdales.

Gardening supports wellbeing and mental health. Scotsdales is privileged to provide an opportunity to improve the daily lives of its customers. Our teams are experts in their fields and can offer much needed insight and advice to help the communities that we serve to make the most of their outdoor living space.

We strive to provide the highest quality products possible to make sure we’re living up to our own standards and company ethos, ‘for all the good things in life’.

Gardening is more than just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle choice and Scotsdales will always advocate for greener living.
