Position Description


The Selwyn Foundation has led the way in improving the quality of life of seniors for over sixty-five years. A dynamic and progressive leading provider of care and services to older people, including a broad range of initiatives for those living in the community, they pride themselves on their reputation for innovation and delivering the best possible experience for their residents and customers. With eight integrated sites across the North Island, their ever-popular villages offer vibrant lifestyles for busy retirees, and their residential care centres have set a new standard within the aged care and retirement village sectors.  Through their Selwyn Institute knowledge hub, the Foundation also shares an array of practical knowledge and advice on the many facets of ageing and best practice in caring for ageing people.

Selwyn Heights enjoys a prime relaxing Hillsborough location in Central Auckland, and it has undergone significant redevelopment over recent years with new modern apartments, and has a new hospital and dementia unit planned for construction.

This influential leadership role will be expected to manage and develop a highly skilled and passionate team, through three direct reports, to enhance the support, services and offering provided to the highly discerning residents in the village. It will require the formation of strong relationships with the residents, and an active working partnership with the Selwyn Villages Leadership Team. You will work with the Chief Operating Officer Villages to develop and implement strategic initiatives to enhance the way all of the villages operate and grow.

To be considered for this position, you must have had proven successful experience in a senior leadership role in the retirement village sector. The ability to contribute to developing creative business strategies, the consistent delivery of high-quality operational support and services, and the ability to develop strong internal partnerships with other parts of an organisation, and maintain highly engaging resident relationships, are essential for the role.  You must have a strong focus on delivering customer-oriented services, and in building individual and team capabilities. Excellent interpersonal, written and oral communication skills are also essential, as is a relevant tertiary qualification.

This role will appeal to a senior manager seeking the challenge of leading a retirement village whose residents are socially very active and capable, and who expect high quality services and advice. You will also be joining an organisation that has strong people-oriented values and principles that guide how the team act, think and behave every day. It has a vibrant and positive organisational culture, and this foundation has shown itself to be a real strength over the past five weeks.
