Imagine arriving to work every day with a breathtaking view that never gets tired or taking your lunch in a tranquil garden. Jobs at Stowe offer rewarding career development, a positive team attitude and an office like no other in 250 acres of Europe's finest landscape gardens.

At Stowe we strive to give the best visitor experience whilst growing our visitor numbers to help us raise vital funds to restore the gardens. Each individual job has a direct impact on our charitable cause from selling scones in the cafe to maintaining the garden. With big ambitions to develop, we're growing our team. 

Stowe and the Aylesbury Vale Portfolio

As well as looking after Stowe, we care for a group of properties in the Aylesbury Vale Portfolio: Claydon, Buckingham Chantry Chapel, Boarstall Tower, Boarstall Duck Decoy, Long Crendon Courthouse and King's Head. Some of our roles involve cross-property working which provides you with experience of a breadth of historial eras and property styles, from a Medieval tower to a grand Georgian house. You'll help us achieve our plan as part of a larger group.

Creative Project Manager: You'll have the opportunity to develop ideas for an extensive transformation project for the way we connect with our visitors offering up new opportunities to engage our audiences and provide stories that are emotionally engaging. You’ll lead a team to work on the “how” and the “what” of how this could be done. You’ll co-ordinate and develop the proposal and with the team implement each and every aspect of the Stowe transformation plan, managing the budget. Fixed-term, full time. Applications close 9 Oct.

Catering Assistants:  With your love of working with people, positive attitude and desire to provide an excellent service, you’ll welcome and look after every customer who visits our catering outlet, in this predominately front of house role. Using your excellent attention to detail, you'll ensure all signage is displayed correctly and the food served looks delicious. Fixed-term, part-time. Applications close 13 Oct.
