We are recruiting!

The National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) is a unique visitor centre, supporting people who are designing and building their own homes, or improving/extending existing properties. We are also a conferencing and meeting space venue and we run a range of educational courses, workshops and large-scale events. We aim to provide an outstanding customer experience, bringing businesses and individuals together in a friendly and professional environment.

We are expecting real growth in our sector in the coming months and years and we now have a number of opportunities available to join our team.

Located in West Swindon, on Junction 16 of the M4, we welcome people from all over the UK who are designing & building their own houses or looking to renovate or improve their existing homes. Since opening in January 2007, over a quarter of a million people have visited us, seeking independent building advice and support.

The NSBRC is operated by The Homebuilding Centre Limited, an Employee Owned Business, with a small team of dedicated staff who own the majority of the business, partly through an Employee Ownership Trust. We work together with pride, loyalty, and embrace challenges with a genuine sense of shared ownership.

The NSBRC won a prestigious business award in November 2021, from the Employee Ownership Association for ‘Developing Business Resilience’. We were named Small Business of the Year at the 2017 Wiltshire Business Awards.

The Homebuilding Centre Limited is a ‘Living Wage’ employer, which means we have signed up to a voluntary scheme to ensure our pay is based on the real cost of living, well above the government’s minimum wage.
