About the Opportunity

The Village Retirement Group now has a newly available opportunity for an Assistant Village Manager to join their team. Working at the Redcliffe location for 290 villas, you will enjoy an environment that boasts immaculate grounds and industry leading facilities. 

Reporting to the Village Manager, the Assistant Village Manager will be responsible for providing adequate support in executing the village's day to day operational requirements. Additionally, this is an interactive and people focused role, just as much about becoming a part of the neighbourhood as it is performing practical duties. An empathetic, meticulously attentive relationship between staff and residents underpins the strong sense of community that Village Retirement Group locations enjoy. This role represents a chance to become a part of a team who truly care about what they do, and who practice the value of community as a centrally important component of their work ethic.

As Assistant Village Manager, some of your day-to-day responsibilities will include:

  • Assisting the Village Manager in conducting business practices that optimise resident comfort and satisfaction;
  • Ensuring an open channel of communication is maintained between residents and staff by attending to resident enquiries quickly and effectively; 
  • Assisting in overseeing all village accounting processes such as obtaining quotes from external service providers, and resident accounts payable and receivable; and
  • Managing and directing operations by staff and contractors in a way that is respectful, facilitates strong teamwork, and is compliant with OHS standards 

About You

To be considered for this position you will need to have strong interpersonal and organisational skills. The ideal candidate will be highly adaptable and outgoing, with the ability to manage multiple tasks and interactions while maintaining a hospitable demeanour.

Someone who takes pride in a high level of service provision and facility maintenance will be well suited to this position. Furthermore, you must be able to field requests and enquiries from residents in a way that is empathetic and when necessary, respectful of their privacy and confidentiality. A high level of emotional intelligence will be an indispensable asset when determining the best approach toward, and communication style for, each situation. Experience in a similar role or in a customer facing industry, such as hospitality, will be highly regarded. 

Duties will include instances of both giving directions and receiving them, so it will be important to be be able to work autonomously and within a hierarchy, and to be able to shift dynamically between the two. 

Please be aware of the following eligibility requirements;

  • Year 12 education or higher;
  • Computer literacy;
  • Accounts experience;
  • Current First Aid certificate with CPR, and;
  • Current Police/National criminal history check
