What could be more rewarding than growing smiles and delivering an exceptional experience to our customers every time?

As a family-owned company that has grown from one centre in 1979 to three today, we are committed to involving our people in our plans. We have a passionate and creative team who make Millbrook what it is today and who are proud to be part of our success.

Every day we aim to grow smiles through delivering exceptional service - we want customers to return to Millbrook because of the knowledge and service we provide.

Currently we employ around 135 people within our centres and cafés at Crowborough, Gravesend and Staplehurst and at our Head Office in Crowborough. We always want to hear from positive people who share our passion for exceptional service, are keen to learn and want to make a difference. Whether you are starting out in a career in horticulture, retail or catering, or looking for a change of direction, we have something for you. 
  You may have great plant knowledge,be a keen amateur gardener or know nothing about plants, but if you have the right attitude, we can teach you. You may be a budding head chef, love serving great food or just enjoy meeting people; if you are great with people we can teach you.

Our comprehensive induction programme ensures that all new starters are quickly able to play their part in growing smiles, inspiring, educating and equipping our customers.

We have weekly training at all centres to grow your product knowledge and enable you to help our customers with confidence. All of our people meet with their manager on a regular basis to discuss progress and any development needs.

We have recently introduced our own in-house development programme to enable those who share our values to grow with Millbrook. 

Our salary package includes:

  • Competitive rates of pay 
  • A personal pension available to all who qualify after 3 months' employment with company contributions
  • 20% discount on most purchases after a qualifying period
  • 28 days holiday inclusive of statutory days (pro rata for part-time employees)
  • Health care after a qualifying period

We know that for you to grow smiles you need to enjoy your role. At Millbrook we like to have fun, whether it’s our annual Christmas parties, a summer BBQ, a trip to the circus or our magical Christmas grottos with your family, we are sure you will enjoy being a part of our success.  Download application form application form 2017.pdf
