What kind of work do we do here?

One of our largest areas, the Home Counties is split into four divisional offices; Watford, Newbury, Guilford and Chelmsford, with sites being developed by both Barratt and David Wilson. The regional developments reflect the diversity of the people in the local areas with varying sizes, costs and designs. We have many first-time buyers, especially since the introduction of Help to Buy. Due to the broad product range available, these may be single people, couples or young families. 

In addition, many families already on the property ladder often upsize their homes and buy with us. The region also attracts retiring experienced professionals to sites such as the luxury homes and apartments at Newbury Racecourse. You will get opportunities to work on all kinds of housing and get insight into the full range of work on offer in housebuilding.

Working here

What makes the Home Counties an exciting place to work?

With close proximity to London, and other major cities, the Home Counties region has many major and local businesses thriving within an area orbiting the capital, allowing for great networking opportunities. This keeps the market on its toes and guarantees a diverse work pattern. When combined with the region’s rich history and diverse culture, whichever site you’re on, whether it’s a small semi-rural location or a larger site providing affordable housing, your experiences will be varied and challenging.

There is a great range of developments covering both new Greenfield communities in the countryside areas, and Brownfield schemes in urban regeneration. This offers a diverse range of experiences and challenges for you to get involved in. If you enjoy being part of a fast-moving, dynamic and eclectic community then the Home Counties are for you.
