Thin blue line seek expert green fingers
It’s the thin green line of the law.
Police Scotland are looking for someone who is a dab hand at Christmas wreath making and flower arranging.
But it is not a job for Special Branch, as successful applicants must have a SQA in the field of gardening.
The full-time £21,000-a-year civilian post is based at the Scottish Police College in the grounds of historic Tuliallan Castle, Kincardine.
As well as floristry skills and raising potted plants, green fingered candidates must be experts at sustainable gardening.
They will have responsiblity for maintaining the Force’s football pitches and ensuring paths and roads throughout the extensive parkland are kept free of snow and ice.
