About usIt all began in 1958 when Sir Lawrie Barratt built Britain’s very first Barratt home near Newcastle. The business continued to grow throughout the 1960s and we were listed on the stock exchange in 1968. Our iconic advert featuring Patrick Allen in the helicopter followed shortly after.
In the 1980s we created the Oakleaf brand and were the first house builder to offer part-exchange to our customers, enabling more people to buy a new home than ever before.
By the 1990s, Sir Lawrie had stepped down from regular involvement in the business and Barratt Homes had well and truly become a household name in Britain.
And now we include some of the sector’s most successful brands: Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes, Barratt London and Wilson Bowden Developments.
Combined, these businesses build and sell thousands of new homes and commercial and mixed use properties. We provide homes for all incomes, including shared ownership, helping meet Britain’s growing housing needs in towns and rural areas across the country. Once again we've achieved 5 star house builder status – the only major national house builder to have been awarded the maximum rating for eight years in a row. It's also the twelfth year we've won more NHBC Pride in the Job awards than any other house builder.
So, as a high performing business we’re offering a fantastic opportunity to people who are looking to develop a career in an exciting and rapidly developing industry.
Why work for usWe understand the importance of providing each and every one of our employees with the opportunity to develop their skills and achieve their ambitions. That’s why everyone within the Barratt Group, without exception, has access to learning and career development, and is actively encouraged to fulfil their potential.
