Horticulture Careers partners with Perennial for March

Horticulture Careers

Horticulture Careers, the recruitment and job advertising brand from Eljays44 Ltd has partnered with industry charity Perennial for the whole of March 2021.

The partnership means that 30% of all revenue generated by Horticulture Careers from 1 March – 31 March 2021 will be donated straight to the charity.

Perennial is the UK’s only charity dedicated to helping everyone who works in horticulture, and their families, when times get tough.

Perennial provides free and confidential advice, support and financial assistance to people of all ages working in, or retired from horticulture. This help extends to spouses, partners and children.

The Gardeners’ Benevolent Institution (now Perennial) was founded on 17 January 1839 at an annual dinner for ‘nurserymen, florists and amateurs’, held in the Crown and Anchor Tavern, just off the Strand on Arundel Street, London. The pub no longer stands (now offices) but is a venue with a long history of hosting public and political meetings, perhaps due to its size and central London location.

From the outset, the Institution aimed to provide a source of income for gardeners, typically Head Gardeners, in retirement, recognising that those who had worked all their lives as low-paid workers on estates and public gardens had no means of looking after themselves in their later years and often lost their tied property on retirement.

Horticulture Careers and Perennial – a partnership

Alex Olley from Horticulture Careers commented:

“This partnership will be a real boost for Perennial, especially following on from the very difficult period last year.

“Eljays44 has long been a supporter of Perennial and has given them a platform to share their news and achievements. This partnership means they will now directly benefit from our audience. We couldn’t be happier to have secured this partnership.”
