Diversity and inclusion

Landscaping on a Taylor Wimpey development

At Taylor Wimpey we pride ourselves on offering our people valuable career development opportunities and look to nurture talent at all levels within our Company; from site based roles such as site managers and sales executives, to office based opportunities across our business functions, like land & planning, commercial and finance. 

Embracing diversity enables Taylor Wimpey to succeed in a competitive market. We are one of the largest homebuilders in the UK, providing jobs and career progression opportunities for over 4,000 employees and over 11,000 contractors. We make all our hiring decisions without prejudice towards age, gender, race, disability, sexual orientation or religion and aim to treat all of our people fairly. Our honest and open approach to recruitment and our people is one of the defining factors in Taylor Wimpey’s culture and future workforce.

As a FTSE100 company, our aim is to be the employer of choice in our industry, attracting and retaining the best people because of our culture and the opportunities that we provide. All our job vacancies are advertised on The Diversity Group’s website

We run several initiatives aimed at creating opportunities for all. We are currently partnered with Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Change 100 programmes that we introduced to Taylor Wimpey in 2015. Change 100 aims to change the employment landscape for students and recent graduates with a disability by offering placements and work experience within businesses like Taylor Wimpey. We are proud to partner with the Leonard Cheshire Disability on this programme and look forward to a lasting relationship. Find out more about the Change 100 programme here.

We have also participated with groups such as Women in Property and initiatives such as the SeeMeJoinMe campaign to show girls, parents and teachers that working in the industry is not off-limits to women. We are proud of our work to increase gender diversity and congratulate Ingrid Skinner, Regional Managing Director of our Central London business, on being named one of Property Week’s 40 Under 40 rising stars of the property industry.
