Congleton, Cheshire-based Adlington Retirement Living has announced four internal promotions and is recruiting for seven new roles as part of its growth plans.

Sharon Bossons, who has been promoted to senior operations manager, said: “We set up Adlington Management Services in 2019 to bring the operations of our retirement communities in-house and provide a consistently outstanding service to our homeowners. I’ve been involved with that from day one.

“My team are responsible for the practical aspects of running a retirement community, such as maintaining the building, as well as the more emotional aspects that create a caring, supportive environment and positively contribute to the health, happiness and wellbeing of our homeowners. We ensure that every homeowner’s experience exceeds their expectations.”

Aimee Clayton has moved from general manager at The Cottons in Ramsbottom to join the central team as operations manager and Donna Cowell has moved from general manager at The Woodlands in Heaton Mersey to join the central team as wellbeing and hospitality manager. In Sheffield, Nick Beedham has been promoted from duty manager to general manager.

Since 2009, Adlington Retirement Living has launched 15 independent retirement communities across the Northwest, Yorkshire, Wales and the Midlands. The family-owned and run business stated it wants to open six new retirement community sites a year.

Dr Ed Gladman, chief executive of Adlington Retirement Living, said: “We’re growing our team as part of our commitment to make that happen. In the past six years we have grown from 30 employees to a team of more than 150, with experts from land acquisition, planning, architectural and technical design, to procurement, construction, sales and marketing, legal and community operations. We’re now recruiting for a number of roles ranging from general managers to architects, quantity surveyors, structural engineers and a senior interior designer.

“Our vision is to empower the older generation to live a long, happy and healthy life. We do this by creating quality retirement communities in safe and secure environments and providing our homeowners with a wide variety of activities, extensive communal facilities and beautiful private gardens.”
