About Taylor Wimpey

Hero image for Taylor Wimpey

Taylor Wimpey is one of the largest homebuilders in the UK, operating from 24 regional offices across England, Scotland and Wales. We were formed by the merger of George Wimpey and Taylor Woodrow in 2007, and have operations in the UK and Spain. We aim to be the developer of choice for customers, employees, communities and shareholders.

We build a wide range of properties, from one- and two-bedroom apartments to five bedroom detached houses, with a broad price range including both private and affordable homes. We are truly national and we cover most regions across the UK. Our regional businesses are run as local homebuilders and have in depth knowledge and experience of the local market. We understand that development is about more than creating homes and we provide millions of pounds worth of infrastructure, for example roads, sewers, landscaping and community facilities, every year across the UK. We aim to develop vibrant communities with a true sense of place that fit into their surrounding area and meet the needs of local people.

At Taylor Wimpey our people are the centre of everything we do and that is why it is so important for us to invest in developing and rewarding our employees. As a company who are constantly striving to achieve more, we are always looking for individuals to join us who have the same passion for our future. The housebuilding industry is booming and the reported skills shortages in the construction sector confirm the real need for a future pipeline of talent. Our graduate programmes offer a structured path into our business.

We run 2 graduate programmes depending on skill set and where your area of study fits within our business. Our general programme is a 2 year rotational scheme divided into 4 separate 6 month placements, where you will spend time in all areas of the Taylor Wimpey business including: production, commercial, technical, sales and marketing, customer service, land and finance. Three of the roles within our general scheme will focus on specific business projects in the second year of the scheme.

We also have a specific finance graduate programme, lasting 3 years and which provides a great opportunity for those completing a finance related degree looking to secure their first role in a FTSE 100 business whilst training towards their professional finance qualification.

You will participate in an exciting development programme including management and leadership training whilst gaining ‘hands on’ experience in all aspects of the business. Working alongside some of the most experienced people in our business this is a fantastic opportunity to join a FTSE 100 house builder that focuses its efforts on people development, sustainability, customer service, commercial performance and build quality

Following successful completion of the programme, we would expect you to progress in your career to one of the following business areas; production, commercial, technical, sales & marketing, land, customer service or finance.

We aim to equip ambitious, talented and determined individuals to achieve a director role within a 5-year timescale. Senior leaders within the business will monitor your progress and you will be supported in achieving professional and/or other appropriate qualifications if required.

We realise we’re building futures for the next generation and ensure our schemes offer a good grounding in all areas of the housebuilding industry. You will receive a broad experience to make sure you are well prepared for your chosen route. Whether you are out on site, or in an office environment, you will be guided and looked after by leaders within our company, making sure you have plenty of opportunities to develop a sustainable career with Taylor Wimpey.
