Grounds | Salem, VA | Full Time | Opened about 2 months ago

Job Description

People say there's no such thing as a free lunch, but as a Roanoke College groundskeeper there is! If the idea of free lunch in our cafeteria sounds good, what about full benefits with retirement contributions, paid parental leave, sick/vacation leave, and 16 paid holidays? Free Roanoke College tuition for you and your children after one year of service? If these perks sound good to you and you have previous successful experience working in landscaping and grounds maintenance, Roanoke College is looking for you!

Must be able to work outside for extended periods of time and work very occasional weekends and evenings. Experience in any or all of the following is preferred: horticulture, irrigation, pesticide application, turf grass or athletic field maintenance and painting. Experience with operation and maintenance of grounds-related motorized equipment and a valid Virginia driver’s license is required.

Roanoke College is a USA Tree Campus and a nationally ranked residential liberal arts college affiliated with the Lutheran Church (ELCA), located in the beautiful Roanoke Valley of Virginia. A Phi Beta Kappa institution, Roanoke College is an equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its faculty, staff, and students; women and members of under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply.
