Summary
North of England

11 days left to apply

Applications are now open for our 2022 graduate programme starting in September 2022.

 At Taylor Wimpey we are evolving and for any graduate who is enthusiastic, adaptable and eager to learn an exciting journey awaits you. The graduate programme will provide you with the technical expertise, business breadth and development to be successful and fast track you into leadership. 

 It doesn't matter if you have no knowledge of the industry or a construction related degree, you'll learn everything you need to know throughout the two year programme. Our General Graduate scheme will enable you to gain a full appreciation of the build life cycle, support functions, understand why Taylor Wimpey is one of the UKs leading housebuilders and at the end of the programme you will be offered a permanent role in a discipline that aligns to your career aspirations.

A bit about us:

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.


Here at Taylor Wimpey we foster a culture of equality, inclusion and diversity and commit to creating an environment where everyone can be their whole self at work. We know that as an organisation and as an industry we have a lot of work to do in this space but we are committed to change. Our Board of Directors is now 50% women and we are proud to have recruited over 50% women into our Graduate programme in the last 3 consecutive years. Our BAME representation for all of our early entry programmes is also growing year on year helping us create a more diverse workforce for the future. We recognise that there is more work to be done and we are striving to improve diversity and inclusion across all areas of our business. Our race and ethnicity, LGBTQ+ and working parents networks are just the start. We have a Diversity & Inclusion committee led and sponsored by some of the most senior people in our business as well as a community of ambassadors across our regional businesses who are responsible for raising awareness of current initiatives.


We integrate sustainability into the design and construction of our homes and developments and are working towards our target to reduce carbon emissions from customer homes in use by 75% by 2030. Our standard house types integrate energy efficiency measures and other sustainability features, and from 2021, a working from home area that can help customers reduce their travel footprint. But that's not all; as well as energy and climate change, our sustainability standards include nature, water and floor risk, ventilation, sound insulation, air quality, materials and waste and quality, connectivity and accessibility.

The programme:

 

The programme runs for two years and begins with a 4-day residential induction where you will learn more about the business, meet other graduates in your cohort and hear from previous graduates and their journeys.  Over the two years you will also attend various personal development sessions and you will have the opportunity to work on projects both for the business and for charity.

 

For the first 6 months you will be rotating around the various business functions; land, technical, commercial, sales, construction, finance, and customer service. Once completed you will then undertake 3 x 6-month placements in specific business functions.  In your placement you will be provided with meaningful work whilst still exposing you to the wider operations of that discipline.  These placements will be undertaken at different regional locations dependant on your division.

 

Each of our graduates will be assigned a buddy which will enable you to settle into your role and have access to a mentor to support your ongoing development.

You will also have the opportunity to undertake business and charity projects to widen your business breadth throughout the programme. Included but not limited to:

Corporate Social Responsibility project
Graduate Business Case challenge
