A large estate on the North Shore of Long Island, needs to hire to hire an experienced Groundskeeping Manager to join their team. The Grounds Manager will oversee a small team of Groundskeepers who maintain a pristine 20+ acre property. The Manager will direct and supervise outside work, motivate the team, create/update both preventative and regular maintenance schedules and systems, conduct daily property inspections/walk-throughs, trouble-shoot problems and communicate larger ones to the principals. The ability and knowledge to recognize potential problem areas, to know how to prevent them, and to make recommendations is required. While this is a managerial role, there is also hands-on landscaping, general handyman and property repair, equipment maintenance, and other ad hoc duties both as part of the team and individually. Qualified candidates will have extensive landscaping experience, at least 3-5 years of managerial experience, and will have worked for a private estate similar in scope. A degree in horticulture is strongly preferred. The disposition and experience to build a rapport and effectively lead a team is a must. This is an excellent full-time salaried opportunity with medical benefits and paid vacation time.
