Making the most of life
Enriching lives. That’s the Mayfield way. Our teams all work together to provide a warm, friendly community where our owners can make the most of their retirement. From chefs and hospitality teams, to managers and salespeople, we take great pride in providing an exceptional service. Whether you’re helping owners acquire their new home, keeping our stylish villages in pristine order, or creating delicious meals in our bistro, you’ll help make sure our owners, their friends and their families enjoy life to the full. We’ll help you make the most of your career, investing in your skills and encouraging your development in the direction you choose through our Academy.
The skills you'll need
To join us, you'll need to have exceptionally high standards, and take real pride in all that you do. You'll also have a strong desire to learn and develop. There's a warm, friendly atmosphere at all of our villages, so we're also looking for people who are great at building a rapport with others and have warm personalities themselves.
Mayfield’s M Bar and Kitchen is home to our restaurant and café bistro. Our Café-bistro menu includes light bite favourites such as the classic club sandwich or fresh salad, to flavoursome options for a full three-course meal. Think smoked salmon or baked camembert to start, and apple and blackberry pie or lemon tart to finish. And with a selection of mains including classics like sausage and mash, and beer battered fish, chips and mushy peas, our guests never leave hungry.
Our chefs have the opportunity to be creative and develop innovative menus for our regular themed events, working closely with our owners to produce an enticing menu for them to enjoy.
Join us and you’ll create exceptional food that’s exactly what our owners and customers want. (You see, our M Bar and Kitchen is open to the wider public, as well as to our owners, their friends and their families.) Thanks to your talents, our bistros will always be full of customers delighted by the quality of your food.
Our kitchen teams all work independently, under the leadership of their Head Chef. Our chefs at all levels are very important to us as they’re key to delivering the lifestyle we want to offer our owners here at Mayfield. That’s why you can be sure we’ll invest in you and your future, with exceptional training, and opportunities to develop across our network of Villages. You’ll even enjoy more family friendly hours, with evening service ending earlier than in most catering roles. We offer generous benefits, too, from paid holidays and pension scheme with 5% contribution, to Healthcare cash plan, retail discounts and chef whites.Find a location near you Why Audley Group?

The Mayfield Villages offering is an exciting prospect. Following the success of Audley Villages, we wanted to develop a new high-quality brand for the mid-market customer – some 4.5 million people in the UK. Mayfield Villages is that brand, and the potential scale for expansion on a national level is huge.
We’ve already opened our first site in Watford, with 255 apartments, as well as a swimming pool, sauna and steam room, bar and bistro, fitness rooms and spa, and we anticipate rapid growth in village development over the next few years.
This is a sales role where you'll be selling not just a property, but also a type of retirement that can offer people a whole new lease of life. It's a long-term career prospect, because we develop our sites in phases, and resell apartments when they become available. We'll help you develop, too, with sales training throughout your career, including a management development programme. What’s more, there are wider opportunities throughout the Audley Group, including with our sister brand, Audley Villages.Find a location near you Why Audley Group?
