Ex-Military (12 months+) into Home Building Careers

Please note - Programme on hold - CITB funding currently suspended.


Ex-military personnel have the skills that home builders require, including discipline and teamwork. The HBF Skills Partnership will build on existing recruitment programmes being run by home builders to develop a pathway that will help more former servicemen and women who left the service more than 12 months ago into roles in the home building industry.


Ex-Military Target

We aim to develop and recruit nearly 150 ex-military personnel into skill shortage roles such as Assistant/Site Managers, Quantity Surveyors and Technical roles.

This partnership approach will enable the programme to provide more:

  • Mentoring, and CV development.
  • A skills-matching process to identify transferable skills; and

The pathway programme will also strengthen the employment prospects of those on the programme by providing a better understanding of the home building industry through:

  • An introduction to Home Building and a site visit
  • Developing communication and management skills.
  • Health and safety training.
  • CSCS site operative training
  • Work experience and mock interview
