Who Are International Greenkeepers For Hire?
International Greenkeepers For Hire is the biggest and friendliest International hub for greenkeepers, groundstaff, and volunteers.
Established in 2019, we’ve quickly made a name for ourselves as the go-to resource to network with like-minded individuals, find new career opportunities, and share your passion for greenkeeping with other members of our enthusiastic online community.
Our aim is simple: to unite greenkeepers, promote the industry, and help share the art of greenkeeping with others. We’re run by greenkeepers, for greenkeepers—and that’s how it’ll always be.

Seek new career opportunities around the world
Greenkeeping is one of the most flexible jobs for people who love to travel and work outdoors.

You can also upload your CV to our CV Drop to be reviewed by our recruiters. We’ll reach out to you if a job that fits your skills becomes available.
Access free online education
We don’t believe that bettering your knowledge, honing your skills, and learning more about the science behind greenkeeping should come at a cost. Our website offers free access to a variety of learning resources, including our educational cards, quarterly magazine, podcast, and Live Library. Regardless of your learning style, you’ll find content that suits your preferences here.

Greenkeeping can sometimes feel like a lonely profession, and we’re lucky to be more connected than ever before thanks to the power of social media. If you haven’t already, join our International Greenkeepers Facebook group to seek advice, get inspired by your peers, upload photos of work you’re proud of, or simply share a greenkeeping meme or video that made you chuckle—there are plenty going around!
Like quick and easy learning? Us too—and our educational cards are designed for just that. They’re easily printable to share around your workplace or download a Jpeg copy. Don’t forget to check out our YouTube channel if you’re more of a visual learner.
