What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
It is very important for any possible applicants to understand the company and its history, as this will provide a view on what the business is all about. This is likely to involve more than just reading the website - Barratt is a National house builder with Barratt and David Wilson sites in a wide range of location, I would strongly recommend that applicants make the effort to go out and see some sites (of both brands).
If considering a Land role, it would also benefit to get out and see pieces of land that Barratt has submitted planning applications for before it is developed. This will give a good view on what type of land is favoured and also the areas that are valued.
I would also suggest that applicants try and understand the targets of the business and what it is aiming for strategically. This will then lead to a view being generated which will be important to discuss during any application process.
Do you have any interview tips?
It is important in an interview to express what you have found out about the organisation as well as where you have been/what you have seen.
If the opportunity arises, it may be appropriate to ask a few questions of the interviewer. This might be about how they find working at Barratt or how they find the house building industry.
