Values that inspire us
Deliver delight everyday
We always look for opportunities to delight our customers / homeowners, team members and stakeholders. This is not something that is set in time or process, it is organic and can occur at any time, in any interaction. This fuels our evolutions and keeps us fresh.
Do it from the heart
Lifestyle Communities is a business for purpose. Through compassion, empathy and kindness, we make a difference to peoples lives.
Our customer is our only truth
Our customer is at the centre of all our decisions, processes, evolution and experiences. Lifestyle Communities would not exist if it wasn’t for our amazing homeowners. This is our only truth.
Our greatest competitor is complacency. We empower our team to continue to explore, challenge and evolve our thinking constantly. There are no sacred cows.
Play as a team
We know that we can achieve more together. We have the best teams in the industry working together to ensure a seamless and exceptional experience for our homeowners.
Own it. Sort it!
We empower our team to own problems and situations and find solutions in the best interests of our homeowners and Lifestyle Communities.

No matter where you are, there is a constant buzz of activity! We keep our small business culture alive by having a flat structure and making culture-fit an essential part of our recruitment process to ensure the people joining our team, align with our values!
Our amazing Support Office is open plan, meaning any person, at any level, is accessible at any time for a curious conversation! Being such a collaborative team, there is always something to do and someone to support you however, we still make time for fun (and plenty of it!).

Do you have flexible working?
Our approach to flexible working is as flexible as the term. Every role is different and so is the way you like to work. Our managers create mutually beneficial working arrangements to benefit their team and achieve their goals. This could be flexibility in working hours, flexibility in working locations and flexibility in working styles. This is matched to the role.
