About us

Kew needs passionate individuals to help solve some of the critical challenges facing humanity today. We employ people like you to conduct leading-edge research, stimulate curiosity and debate, cultivate beautiful gardens and work with the public to encourage a life-long love of plants. We want you to be part of the team.

We have two sites, one at Kew Gardens near Richmond in London and one at Wakehurst in Sussex. Kew Foundation, our charitable arm, delivers Kew’s membership scheme and fundraising programme to support Kew’s work. And Kew Enterprises, our commercial arm, delivers commercial services, products and events in the Gardens and online.

We currently employ around 1000 staff and work with around 800 volunteers to achieve our objectives.
