So successful is the model that we've created at Audley, that we already have seven villages open, three in construction and two more in the planning phase. We aim to open two more sites every year, meaning we'll have doubled our portfolio in just five years.
We've won award after award for the innovation and quality of our properties, including the WhatHouse? Best Retirement Development Gold award three years in a row. What's more, our Sales team has been gaining its own accolades. Up against the likes of Yell, Virgin and SSE, we gained second place in the BESMA Sales Team of the Year, and Sales Director of the Year awards 2016.
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 resell apartments when they become available, and look to create satellite sites around our villages. We'll help you develop, too, with sales training throughout your career, including a management development programme.Apply now Find a location near you Why Audley?
