Inspiring quality and excellence

Celebrating the UK's best site managers

For over 40 years, Pride in the Job has been an important part of our work to help drive construction quality. Winning site managers tell us that it inspires them to give a little extra, to strive harder for ever-higher standards of house building.

We believe that the calibre of the site manager and the way they inspire their site team has the greatest influence on the quality of the finished home. 

This is the competition that all site managers want to win. By promoting friendly rivalry, showcasing best practice and rewarding excellence, Pride in the Job supports the delivery of homes of the highest quality.

How the competition works

The competition covers England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man and includes house-building businesses of all sizes: small, medium and large, with a separate category for multi-storey construction.

Every site manager managing a site registered for NHBC Buildmark is automatically entered and they compete against each other at a regional level to win Quality Awards, Seals of Excellence and the overall Regional Awards in their categories. 

Ultimately, the Regional Award winners from every category in every region compete to win the national Supreme Award and Runners-up titles.
