The technical team at Taylor Wimpey are responsible for the design of our sites above and below the ground. They are made up of Engineers and Design Executives. The Engineers are responsible for establishing the infrastructure that supports a new development, creating new communities that thrive. The adoptions department maintains the infrastructure until that responsibility is handed over to the relevant authorities. This role will be office based and will involve occassional travel to site.
From roads to sewers and public open spaces you expect from a modern development, adoptions are a vital part of ensuring the development meets and exceeds our customers’ expectations. Adoptions will ensure the completed developments are managed; from landscape maintenance, repairing streetlighting to unblocking sewers. Adoptions also monitor construction compliance during the build stages to ensure the infrastructure is built to adoptable standards for handover. Adoptions work combines office-based project management with problem solving fieldwork.
As a Technical Trainee, you will first learn about infrastructure, gaining technical knowledge in civil engineering, groundworks, and the adoptions process in construction. Then, you will get exposure to other aspects of design and engineering to later decide where you will focus your career. This is an exciting opportunity to train to become a qualified technical professional by joining the Management Trainee programme. It’s perfect for someone either leaving school or college with A levels or a Construction related qualification, or someone who has already gained a degree in construction or a discipline relating to the built environment.
To be a successful in the Technical team your strengths should be problem solving, attention to detail and the ability to build relationships with others as you will need to work effectively across teams.
The Technical Trainee role best suits those who are looking to start their career and wish to develop into a fully qualified technical professional. Whether you are joining after school or college or having completed your degree, our development programme is designed to get you there. We ask for the following minimum qualification levels and requirements:
