About Pride in the Job Driving quality in house-building for 32 years
Pride in the Job is the only UK-wide competition dedicated to recognising site managers who achieve the highest standards in house-building. It has been instrumental in driving up the quality of new homes for 32 years.
Recognition, reward and reputation
A Pride in the Job award is the highest industry accolade a site manager can receive.
It represents success for the site manager, his team and associated trades as well providing a reputational boost for the building company. Most importantly, homeowners who buy a Pride in the Job award-winning home benefit from a high quality product.
