Why Work With Us

Retirement Villages employs around 850 staff across the United Kingdom – all committed to delivering the highest possible care and service to each of our residents across our 16 village locations and at our head office in Leatherhead.

The nature of our business means that the range of careers available is broad – embracing sales, care, nursing, development, administration, finance, catering, gardening, maintenance and housekeeping.

People choosing to work for Retirement Villages are joining an established company with 35 years of experience in the retirement sector. Over that period we have honed our processes and systems to ensure our staff receive appropriate training and development and can see career opportunities within our growing organisation.

Our objective is to have in place staff structures that provide incentive and career advancement opportunities.  This helps us to develop further our culture of learning, service and professionalism.

To help employees along their career path, we encourage them to develop their skills and qualifications through external study, which in turn improves the quality of care we can offer residents.

We encourage managers to develop authority and commercial awareness and to make the most of opportunities to exercise autonomy, take responsibility and make decisions that will benefit the company, residents and staff.
