Eileen Iggo

Nursery Gardener

As one of the University gardeners I am helping to create more agreeable green spaces for everyone to enjoy. I feel my work is having a direct impact on making the campus a pleasant and tranquil environment for staff and students. It is an honour to also have my floral creations form part of the display at prestigious events such as the graduation ceremonies. I work collaboratively internally with different parts of the University when they have different flora requirements. An important part of my work is also in assisting research students with their experiments including spraying pesticides, mixing compost and advising on plant problems. I love the variety of my role and I get a great deal of satisfaction knowing that I am transforming areas and event venues by making them look good for everyone to enjoy. This gives me job satisfaction.
