Careers at Hedges Direct


About Us

Hedges Direct started trading in 2005 and have been achieving amazing success ever since.

As well as being the UK's leading supplier of hedging plants, we have expanded our ranges over the years and now boast a 16 acre nursery full of hedging, shrubs, garden plants, topiary, climbers, trees...the list goes on.

We believe that we've got something for everyone here and pride ourselves on just that - offering the same exceptional service and products to everyone. Whether you're a homeowner, land owner, garden enthusiast, first time patio grower, landscaper or local council, we can find and supply the right plants for you.

Jamie Shipley - Managing Director

"Our everyday mission is to make sure that each and every member at Hedges Direct cares.

If you care, if you're committed, you'll do a great job. Part of our mission means making sure we pick and pack the best quality products, offer exceptional customer service and guidance in the call centre, and build strong relationships with our growers and suppliers. Everyone cares, everyone has one common goal.

That's what makes the team so special - and the Hedges Direct offering so powerful."

The Hedges Crew

Putting smiles on faces, colour and character to places.

There's more than meets the eye at Hedges Direct. We have decades of horticultural knowledge and experience in the business, driving the range, quality and stock levels. But, behind our nursery, we have an amazing team of ecommerce and business experts too, driving our customer centric ethos and commercial operation.

Our fantastic team is spread across 3 sites, each with the same great culture, and all driven by the same focus - to put smiles on faces and give colour and character to places. This fuels everything we do - from customer service, to product ranges and quality.

Here are just a few of our smiling faces and their stories about life at Hedges Direct.

Five Acres

Five Acres

It might have started as 5, but we've now grown to over 16 acres - and we're not stopping there! It's the hub and heart of the business.

It can be a little tough for the nursery team. It's a physical role and let's face it, with the UK weather, they have to be prepared for every season - sometimes all of them in one day! We kit them out so they're ready to face every element, and we take time to update them regularly on range changes, orders placed and feedback from customers.

Raring to go and working seamlessly as a team, no one really bats an eyelid when it comes to the weather... or the fact that the site keeps growing in size! Our crew are just full of enthusiasm and always get the job done.

Our Values
Our Values

It's really quite simple - to care.

Care about the plants, the customers and the team. If we're putting care into all that we do, Hedges will always stay true to what we believe in - putting smiles on faces, colour and character to places.

Grow With Us

We spend a lot of time at work, so it's only natural that we get on with one another. Some might say it's like a family, but we prefer to call it a team, a crew. That's because we believe it takes a determined team to come together and work towards our customer centric mission. Each member of that team plays a vital part in delivering results. We learn, we improve and we respect each other. And, just like any team, we have a lot of fun along the way.

We're growing - and so is our crew. So, we're always on the lookout for new members to join us. If you care as much as we do, and are excited to be a part of our journey, take a look at our vacancies section and get in touch.

Like we said, there's more than meets the eye here at Hedges. That's why our interview process is a little different.

For many of the Five Acres crew roles, it all comes down to having the right attitude and caring about what you do. Experience is always a bonus, but an appetite to learn is just as important.

If you've got an allotment, landscaping experience, grounds experience, or if your green thumbs are looking for a new challenge - Hedges might just be the place for you.

For all roles, all you need to do is email us at [email protected] and simply tell us why you want to work at Hedges Direct, what role has caught your eye and why you care. If we like what we hear, then we'll get in touch to chat further about our roles.
