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.
What you'll be doing?
If you are looking to transition into construction management this could be the programme for you. Starting in March or September, this is a one-year programme. Bringing prior experience from the Armed Forces, the aim is to become a fully qualified Assistant Site Manager at the end of 12 months. This programme is for those who thrive in a fast paced environment and have the drive and focus to deliver results and develop into a leadership role.
There’s a comprehensive and structured induction programme from the moment you join. Through training and ongoing support from the construction team you will learn everything you need to understand the build process and grow essential site management skills. This is all achieved through development modules and on-the-job learning along with self-development and manager coaching sessions.
How far you go will be driven by you. Where there is passion, the ability to see the bigger picture, ambition, appreciation of customer service and building relationships, and someone who can drive change, we see our Site Managers and even Construction Directors of the future on this programme. Your own personal career aspirations, your ability to perform and hunger to succeed, will drive the rate and pace of career opportunities and further development available.
Reporting to the Site Manager, you will undertake a course of study and work experience over 12 months preparing you for the role of an Assistant Site Manager and beyond.
You will be expected to:
