Sarah Tarn
Job title
Building Inspector
What was your background before joining NHBC?

I worked as a surveyor’s booking clerk for 8 years and carer for the elderly before changing career and joining NHBC. I am now a Building Inspector.

What attracted you to NHBC?

My friend recommended NHBC for its opportunities for progression and development. After feeling stuck in my previous job with no options for progression, I decided to try it.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

The never-ending ability to obtain more knowledge. Learning to deal with different situations and adapting myself to meet the needs of those involved. The role as a Building Inspector challenges me every day.

Do you feel supported in your career development?

NHBC have supported me every step of the way and were also there for me during my own personal difficulties when I lost my dad. I honestly couldn’t ask for more!

What do you enjoy most about working at NHBC?

The amazing people. Everyone is willing to help in any way they can and I think that speaks volumes about how people feel about their job and the company they work for.

What would you say to prospective candidates thinking about a career with NHBC?
