This graduate opportunity sits in the village operations team, a group who are responsible for the day-to-day running and commercial management of Stockland's portfolio
Stockland is Australia's largest community creator. We own, manage and develop a diverse $17 billion portfolio that encompasses retail town centres, logistics centres and business parks, office assets, residential communities and retirement living villages.
Our vision is to be a great Australian real estate company that makes a valuable contribution to our communities and country. This is brought to life by our 1400 employees who are guided by our values, which are of community, accountability, respect and excellence and are passionately committed to delivering our purpose – 'we believe there is a better way to live'.
This graduate opportunity sits in the village operations team, a group who are responsible for the day-to-day running and commercial management of Stockland's portfolio of 66 (and growing) retirement living assets nationally. These retirement villages range in size and scale and each operates as a small business. The teams purpose is to ensure each village is operationally successful, commercially viable and above all meets the needs of the residents who live there.
It is anticipated that the graduate will initially spend a significant amount of time at various villages to gain full exposure to village life and understand how Stockland manages these assets commercially and operationally. Following this, the graduate will be tasked to work on a series of projects and initiatives. These will vary and are dependent on business needs but could include financial modelling and oversight of profit and loss, developing operational guidelines, community outreach programmes and marketing initiatives.
The proportion of older Australian's is projected to grow significantly in the next two decades, as is the demand for later living developments. This position provides a graduate with an invaluable opportunity to gain broad exposure within the retirement living business and gain experience in a high growth market for Stockland and the country at large.
Owing to the broad nature of the position, this opportunity will provide the graduate with an opportunity to pursue a longer-term career in areas including asset management, retail operations, leasing and business development.
This position is based in Sydney with some travel to sites in the greater CBD area. Owing to this, a driving license is desirable.
