    I am a florist of 10 years and have worked for Riggs before, currently living in Australia but returning to the UK next month. Can you please tell me if the florist position is in Rochdale or Todmorden.
    Thank you

    Hi, I am looking for a job or apprenticeship at the Rochdale/ Todmorden garden centres, I was wondering if I could leave my details and if anything came up may you contact me?
    I am looking for a job/ apprenticeship in plant nurseries, I am 19 and have no job experience in these fields but I am very interested in looking after plants and have successfully propagated my own bonsai plants from cuttings.
    Thank you.

      The best thing to do is to pop in store and have a word with the manager at either branch Niall, you can always ring up first to make sure they are available

    Hi, I’m looking for a part time job at your Rochdale site. I have no previous experience in plants, but I have just retired as a podiatrist after 32 years, I am seeking a career change. Please you keep me informed. Thanks

      we always advertise all the job vacancies on the website so the best thing to do is to have a look at the site on a regular basis and also drop your CV off at the Garden Centre so they can keep you in mind if anything come up.

      Hope this helps
