The Route to a world of opportunity

At the RHS we are passionate about educating everyone about the fascinating world of plants, how to encourage nature, and create a healthy and greener place for us to thrive in

Our New Shoots initiative aims to inspire the next generation of talent by giving people insights into the horticultural industry and a taste of working in a public garden. Whether you are looking for information about careers in the sector, a useful stepping-stone between education and starting a career, want to bring a job role you heard about to life, or are considering a brand new career change, there is something for everyone, regardless of your background or experience.
