Programmed’s more than 60 years’ experience maintaining properties across Australia and New Zealand includes some of Australia’s most prestigious and iconic sites. An equal source of pride comes from our work within the retirement living community, which we support through the provision of complete property and maintenance services.

We’ve partnered with the Retirement Living Council since its inception (some would say even before that) because we know how integral the retirement living industry is in facilitating positive ageing and accommodation services for older people.

As part of this, we seek to foster the industry’s advancement through excellence in site management – excellence which hinges extensively on the Village Manager.

That’s why we proudly bring to you the Programmed Village Manager of the Year Award.
