At Summerset we are here to bring the best of life to our residents. To do this, we know we need to take care of our people to form a team who are strong enough to care, operate as one team, and strive to do their best.
We are looking for an exceptional Village Assistant to join our team at our Richmond Village. This is a casual position to assist in providing village cover, reporting directly to the Village Manager.
Our Village Assistant is in many ways the face of our business and as such you need to be able to relate to a wide range of people, especially the elderly and their families.
The Village Assistant role provides great diversity; therefore you would provide a degree of both operational and administrative cover for the Village Manager.
This role is responsible for being the first point of contact for our residents in the Village Manager's absence and be required to respond to any emergency situations which may arise.
You will also carry out a range of tasks such as cleaning, housekeeping and administration tasks along with running activities with residents as required.
At Summerset we value your presentation and customer service ethic as much as the technical skills you bring to the team - our culture is what sets us apart! You are expected to be actively interested in the "look and feel" of the Village.
This is accomplished within the context of ensuring that the residents feel supported and secure, and enjoy living within Summerset's Villages.
Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work permit.
You will be required to have a current First Aid certificate for this role.
