About the role
Spitfire Lodge is a stunning new development of 73 retirement apartments based in Portswood and we are currently recrutiing for a Lodge Manager to co-ordinate the development.
This is an exciting opportunity for someone who loves working with people, coupled with a background in administration and customer service to join our retirement development as a Lodge Manager.

Despite the high levels of social contact with residents, you will be happy working alone and independently, using your own initiative.
To support with the organisation of events and to effectively administer the maintenance of the site, you’ll be an accomplished administrator and computer literate, with previous experience of using Microsoft Office applications, including Outlook.
