Horticultural Rising Stars have until Friday 22nd February to enter

The deadline to find the 2019 Westland Rising Stars is looming.


Each year Westland and the Garden Centre Association (GCA) search for the best up and coming employees at garden centres who show great potential and would benefit from the opportunity to further their skills and experiences as part of the Rising Stars Program.


Nominations are open now until to Friday February 22nd 2019 so candidates don’t have long left to enter.


Applications will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will decide on 10 finalists. The finalists will then attend a series of four workshops held by Gordon Emslie GCA inspector, designed to further their knowledge of the horticultural retail industry.


To be eligible, candidates should hold a position up to junior management level, have access to financial data including sales and cost prices, be able to develop a sales or marketing idea for growing an area of the business and, perhaps most importantly, should demonstrate a drive and commitment that they wish to be developed.
