Equinox Village, an independent-living retirement community located in Manchester Center VT, is seeking a Handyman/Handywoman.

The successful candidate will play a key role in the smooth daily operations of our community. Please note our staff does not provide medical care.

  • Be observant, identifying problems that need attention and reporting them for action.
  • Transport residents to and from medical and other local appointments in a timely and safe manner.


  • Always makes safety a top priority.
  • Excellent customer service and communication skills.
  • Professional behavior with staff and residents.
  • Valid Driver’s License in good standing.
