About Us

Our History

We built our first home in Newcastle upon Tyne in 1958. Since then, we have built over 350,000 more, becoming one of Britain’s largest and best known homebuilders in the process.

Today, we are stronger than ever and include some of the sector’s most successful brands: Barratt Homes, David Wilson Homes, Ward Homes, Barratt London and Wilson Bowden Developments.

Every year, these businesses build and sell thousands of new homes and commercial and mixed use property, ranging from starter and family homes, through to exclusive luxury apartments, and offices to retail parks. We also provide affordable homes for rent and shared ownership, helping meet Britain’s growing housing need in towns and rural areas across the country. All this means we’re a big business, employing over 6,000 people in locations across the United Kingdom.

Once again we have achieved 5 star housebuilder status.  We are the only major national housebuilder to have been awarded the maximum 5 star rating for five years in a row.  It's also the tenth year we've won more NHBC "Pride in the Job" Awards than any other housebuilder.  It's certainly more proof that we are the nation's leading housebuilder.

As a high performing business we are looking for high performing people. The size and the scale of our work means that we are able to offer all kinds of roles, from administrative and accountancy, through to sales and surveying. Whatever your background, you can be sure of a solid future within the Barratt Group.

Elsewhere on this site, we’ve explained how important it is for our changing organisation to attract, keep and develop the right sort of people – so you will be able to see how  well suited you are to our organisation.
