We're Hiring in Vancouver!

Gardening Salesperson

Victoria-based company has recently opened a new retail showroom and warehouse in Vancouver. We import specialty garden tools and ladders from suppliers in Japan, The Netherlands and the UK. We sell online, in person at our retail showrooms (Victoria & Vancouver), at trade shows, horticulture-related events, and to select wholesale dealers.

We are a small company, so this position requires an all-rounder who is happy filling varied roles: retail sales, receiving inventory shipments, filling dealer orders, shipping orders, merchandising, and helping us build the retail side of the Vancouver location through promotional efforts, social media, and networking.

Our ecommerce site is based on a Shopify platform which is managed at HQ in Victoria; due to the physical distance between HQ and Vancouver, we require someone who is comfortable working independently, with strong computer skills and experience using ecommerce sites.

Initially, this position will require two 4-hour shifts/week (Friday & Saturday, 10-2), but we anticipate adding one or two shifts a week as the business grows. Could be an ideal situation for someone who only wants to work part-time as a gardener and/or a parent with kids at school who wants to work during school hours.

Compensation: Starting wage $30/hour plus commission. Medical and dental benefits. Wages negotiable based on relevant experience and qualifications.


  • Retail sales experience, particularly in a small business environment.
  • Work experience in ornamental horticulture or food/flower farming.
  • A keen interest in ornamental horticulture and fine gardening tools.
  • Good working knowledge of how and when to use a variety of gardening tools.
  • Strong computer skills and specific experience using Word & Excel is required.
  • Experience working with ecommerce sites. Shopify experience is preferred.
  • Basic proficiency with social media platforms, primarily Instagram and Facebook.
  • Ability to lift and carry 50 lbs. This location is our main storage facility for ladders (6'-16' tall) and the ability to move them around is required.

Please apply by email (office@gardenerskit.com) with the following 3 items: 

  1. A resume detailing relevant experience.
  2. A letter explaining your interest in the position and highlighting relevant experience.
  3. A minimum of 2 references; one must be related to horticulture or farming.
