Work at Bay Road

The Bay Road Nursery has a proud reputation as one of Victoria’s premier garden and lifestyle centres. The nursery is positioned in the bayside suburb of Sandringham and offers clients an experience of quality and style in fitting with this beautiful area.

We are seeking an enthusiastic horticultural retail assistant to work with our talented team to present the very best retail experience for our customers. We are a busy garden centre and every member of our team is selected for the skills and abilities that are required to maintain our high levels of work ethic, customer service, and passion for helping to create better spaces and places.  

Although horticultural knowledge and experience is an advantage, we are looking for a person with a passion for design, nature, and people. The position requires good communication skills and the ability to effectively work within our team. We are looking for someone to capture the vision of our business and work with us to continue to build our unique, fresh, healthy and friendly retail experience for our customers.
