At Barratt, we not only welcome ex-Armed Forces personnel, we actively want the skills and experience you can bring. Housebuilding is a natural next step for many in the Armed Forces. Your talent, drive and leadership abilities translate well into construction and Barratt have different opportunities to match the broad range of skills on offer.

You’ll be joining the leading housebuilder in Britain. We work on projects of all sizes and types across the country and as the demand for housing increases, we’re helping build homes for the next generation. That means you’ll develop skills for a career that will always be needed and because the industry is continually changing you’ll always be learning new ones.

Whichever programme you pick, Barratt prioritises your training and development so you’ll have access to the latest techniques and technology to keep one step ahead of the industry. The work can be challenging, but it’s always different and you can take satisfaction knowing that what you do matters.
