Work with your partner as a two person team co-managing one of our independent senior living communities.

Part best friend, part guardian angel, while working with your partner, spouse, significant other or sibling. Earn a comfortable salary, excellent benefits, and have virtually all of your day-to-day living expenses covered, including an onsite, rent-free apartment, paid utilities, three chef-prepared meals a day and more.

Job Description

If you and your spouse, partner, significant other or sibling have sales and management experience and are looking for a new career path in which you can work together as a two-person team, Holiday Retirement has a fantastic opportunity for you! We are looking for a Community Manager team to co-manage one of our retirement communities. In your role as a Community Manager, you will live in your assigned community, oversee the company’s marketing and operational needs, and provide our residents with unique and personalized care that is not found anywhere else. We are hiring for the Community Manager team position for a specific region, rather than a specific city. Therefore, you and your spouse/partner will need to be willing to move to any of our retirement communities within the region to which you are assigned.


Job Responsibilities

As part of a Community Manager team, your focus will be on providing residents with a warm, welcoming and carefree lifestyle. Depending on the community, management teams may spend up to 75 percent of their time on sales and marketing, which includes conducting both lead generation and lead conversion activities. You will also be in charge of community associates and take responsibility for the financial management of the community. You and your spouse/partner will live onsite in an assigned apartment and will be on call at all times.

Your specific duties as part of a two-person Community Manager team will include:

·         Interacting daily with residents to address issues and concerns with day-to-day operations of the community

·         Conducting both lead generation and lead conversion activities, including grassroots initiatives such as attending local chamber of commerce meetings, visiting area physicians and partnering with nearby senior centers in order to broaden awareness of the community

·         Working with the on-site enrichment coordinator to execute programs and activities and with the bus driver to coordinate shuttle services that accommodate resident needs

·         Overseeing the community’s human resource functions, including performance evaluations, personnel development and hiring/firing of all community associates

·         Managing community financial matters including consistent achievement of revenue goals, and monitoring expenses and budgets as well as profits and losses

·         Maximizing profitability of your community by ensuring that occupancy levels remain high

·         Managing all aspects of the maintenance, housekeeping, Food Services and dining room functions, as well as the Enrichment Coordinator and Bus Driver roles

·         Providing effective and timely resolutions to problems that arise in the Holiday Retirement Community, using available resources and following Holiday Retirement’s guidelines

·         Actively participating in the planning and execution of special events and resident activities

·         Conducting monthly resident meetings

·         Treating all residents in a respectful, compassionate manner and maintaining confidentiality for all business and operations information


Job Requirements

As a Community Manager team, you and your spouse/partner will interview as a team. Both sales and management experience are vital to the Community Manager position, and while it is acceptable for one of you to have strong sales experience while the other has strong management experience, both of you will need to have at least some background in sales. It is also important that you both have a balance of personality types to cover all aspects of the Community Manager role, with one having stronger detail-oriented administrative skills and the other having stronger interpersonal rapport-development abilities. Both of you must have exceptional multi-tasking and time-management abilities, as well as a proven ability to work in a team setting, both with your partner/spouse (you'll spend a lot of time together, depending on one another to carry a fair share of the responsibilities) and also with other staff members.

Specific qualifications for the Community Manager position include:

·         Minimum 4 years previous management experience including operational and financial experience in managing employees, customer service, budget process, purchasing, payroll and accounts payable/receivable

·         Demonstrable sales skills, honed within a relationship or longer sales cycle environment

·         Commitment to and respect for all individuals

·         Ability to communicate effectively in English, verbally and in writing, with both residents and staff

·         Willingness and ability to live on-site in an assigned apartment

·         Demonstrated ability to work in a team setting and to utilize strong public relations skills

·         Basic computer ability (must pass a basic computer skill test); proficiency in Microsoft Office preferred

·         Experience serving senior citizens preferred

·         Familiarity with laws and regulations applicable to the Holiday Community and Human Capital preferred



As part of a Community Manager team at Holiday Retirement, you and your spouse/partner will have the opportunity to have a significant and positive effect every day on the lives of the residents you serve. You will not simply help to operate your assigned community – you will become an integral part of that community and the community itself will become like your home. This is truly a unique opportunity. You and your spouse/partner will be provided with a two-week paid training course that will cover sales, operations and human resources issues. There is opportunity for advancement to lead management positions as well as other positions within the Holiday Retirement company depending upon your strengths. We value and appreciate your hard work and professional dedication as a Community Manager and will reward you with a competitive compensation package that includes benefits:

Your benefits as a Community Manager will include:

·         Paid housing, utilities, meals, housekeeping and linen service

·         Health, dental and vision coverage

·         Optional life insurance

·         Optional disability insurance

·         401(k)

·         Bonus opportunities

·         Paid holidays
