Positions available will include: nurses and carers, chefs and waiting staff, gardeners and maintenance personnel, drivers, housekeepers and laundry staff, administrators and receptionists, as well as activity coordinators, beauticians and fitness instructors to work in the wellness spa.

Commented David Westerby, village manager of Richmond Witney, “Once fully open, the new village will offer people of all ages the opportunity for full and part time employment, and we are keen to build a wonderful community of staff to look after all the new residents who have already started to move in. We welcome anyone who might be looking for a new job over the next six months to come and see us to the recruitment fair, or to get in touch.”
