Volunteering & Internships
Working in the horticultural industry can be a very enjoyable and rewarding career. Many jobs are advertised locally so it is recommended to contact individual gardens direct if you are interested in a particular area of work. Volunteering in a garden is a great way to get experience, make contacts and can often lead to paid-for work. Larger organisations such as the National Trust for Scotland and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh often advertise job vacancies, training opportunities and volunteering positions on their websites so it is worth checking these sites regularly.
