NHBC has launched its biggest recruitment campaign in 30 years, it said.
The UK warranty and insurance provider for new homes will create more than 100 frontline technical jobs to help support housebuilders as they increase volumes in response to the improving market.
The recruitment drive will see NHBC recruit 80 new building inspectors and create new management roles, as well as take on more surveyors, engineers and special project managers.
NHBC will also assemble a Mobile Quality team for housebuilders who need extra inspection assistance. The team will cover areas of high demand and those with more complex projects.
“As production ramps up across the country, the industry is faced with a new set of challenges,” said NHBC’s operations director Ian Davis. “Builders up and down the country have told NHBC what they need to move forward and we have responded by launching one of the biggest recruitment drives in our history.
“By upscaling our technical and inspection services we will be able to provide extra support to the industry and builder customers at this crucial time.”
