The Future Talent Network is an online knowledge and support hub for new entrants to the home building industry. The network is here to inform, guide and assist young members in their chosen careers, whether it be working on-site or at head office.

Drawing on HBF's knowledge and expertise from across the industry, the network will also bring together news and insight to government decisions, thinking, and policies that affect home building.

If you would like to join the Future Talent Network or know someone who would benefit from membership, you can fill out an application form below.

Membership is free for employees from HBF member organisations and is open to all new entrants to the home building industry, regardless of job role, who have been identified as potential future leaders. We have created some FAQs below to help with any questions you may have and look forward to welcoming you to the Future Talent Network.
