The skills you'll need
At Audley, we're growing fast, so you need to be someone who loves rising to the challenge of delivering work of an exceptional standard – even when things are changing rapidly. We're also a game-changing company. We've created a unique type of retirement village – and retirement lifestyle – by listening closely to the needs and wishes of our potential customers, that's why empathy is such an important skill here. Delivering what our owners want is paramount, that's the Audley way.
Land Acquisition & Planning
Join Audley, and you'll be involved in the acquisition and planning for our award-winning village developments (we won the WhatHouse? Best Retirement Development Gold award in 2012, 2013 and 2014). We already have seven completed villages, three under construction and two in the planning stage. Now our goal is to open at least two new village sites every year for the next five years – more than doubling our portfolio. With investment of £600 million to create 2,000 new units, our Land Acquisition and Planning team will be very busy.
What's more, these are complex and interesting developments, often based round heritage building conversions, and encompassing extensive new builds (and a new brand!). This is a very exciting place to be – both in terms of the quality of the developments you'll be involved in, and our rapid growth plans. We are also keen to keep our 100% planning pass rate too so… no pressure!Apply now Find a location near you Why Audley?
