A leading housebuilder where people come first.
We’ve been nationally recognised as a 5 star housebuilder fourteen years in a row for supplying high-quality homes for all generations. That’s more than any other major housebuilder. It’s because we combine the brightest minds, the latest technology, and a genuine commitment to putting customers first. We want the best people in the industry to help us shape the future of building. We have tailored opportunities for apprentices, graduates, experienced professionals and ex-Armed Forces personnel to come and help us stay one step ahead, and build the homes that Britain needs.
Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we remained focused on keeping our people safe, doing the right thing for our customers and communities and backing our NHS. And, as the UK’s number one housebuilder, we’re playing our part in the recovery and getting Britain building again.
As part of our commitment to keeping our people safe we introduced a hybrid working model across the company, that enabled our colleagues to divide their time between working in the office, on our construction sites and sales offices, and working from home where possible.
During this challenging time we recognised the many benefits that an effective hybrid working culture brings, so we continue to offer this to new and existing colleagues where their roles allow.
It takes a community to build a community.
We are building an organisation where anyone with drive and talent can pursue the career they want. We are building a culture where anyone, regardless of gender, race, sexuality, disability, background or any other characteristic, can progress and be proud to work for Barratt.
Jobs through direct and indirect employment.

Get into house building
We've partnered with the House Building Skills Partnership to promote careers in house building, with a focus on attracting new entrants into the industry, and on providing specialist training to develop the qualified workforce needed to construct today's high quality new homes. If you're interested in a house building career, take a look at the roles we have available by clicking here.
Our vision is to lead the future of housebuilding by putting customers at the heart of everything we do. We have four priorities to help us get there:
- Customers first
- Great places
- Leading construction
- Investing in our people
Putting customers first
Whether it’s home buyers or colleagues across the business, you’ll always be put in the best possible position to do everything you can to make sure customers get what they need from us.
We want to build homes that people are proud to live in which means you will have the support, resources and opportunities to do work that you’re proud of.
To deliver high-quality homes every time, we will always invest in the latest technology and enable our people to use innovative methods to continue to improve how we work.
Investing in our people
We will only achieve our ambitious vision if we keep the best people working here. That means we will always prioritise your development and invest in training and opportunities so you can keep learning throughout your career.
Putting you in a position to succeed
It’s about more than bricks and mortar. Our people are the reason we have continued to succeed for more than 60 years so working here means you’ll be put in a position to thrive. We help all of our 6,000 people achieve their ambitions, create the career they want and do work they can be proud of. Whether you’re just leaving school, new to the industry or an experienced professional, we’re always looking for ambitious, talented people to help us stay one step ahead of the industry.
We work across every stage of the building lifecycle in every region across Britain. We are also in the unique position of being one of very few developers with both commercial and residential expertise, through our Wilson Bowden brand. There are opportunities at every stage, whether you want to work in an office, on-site or both. If you’re new to the industry, we have multiple award-winning training programmes and if you’re already experienced then we have opportunities across the building lifecycle to join industry-leading teams. Wherever you join us, you will be well paid, receive excellent training and development, and have access to one of the most generous benefits packages in the industry. Use the menu above to find what’s most relevant for you.
The way we work
We’re a values-driven organisation and that means that our principles aren’t just words on a website. They are how you will work every day if you join us. We don’t just want to be part of the future of housebuilding. We want to lead the change and make it happen. It’s a bold vision, and a challenging one, because if we want to keep customers at the heart of what we do, we'll have to continue changing the way we think and work. We want to be judged by our actions, not our promises which is why we’ve set some priorities for the business, and backed them up with a clear set of principles to ensure we act responsibly, not just now but in the long term.
