As a FTSE100 company, we value diversity and aim to be an inclusive employer who can attract, retain and promote employees from every kind of background or lifestyle, regardless of race, gender, disability, age, faith or sexual orientation. Things we are doing to drive diversity in the housebuilding sector include:

  • Our Gender Pay report highlighted that our pay gap was lower than the UK average.
  • For 3 consecutive years at least 50% of our graduate intake have been female.
  • Undergraduates from our Change100 (Students and Graduates with Disabilities) Programme have gone on to secure full-time employment with Taylor Wimpey.
  • Nearly half of our PLC Board of Directors are female.
  • The Taylor Wimpey business is chaired by a female.
  • A third of our Group Management Team are female.
  • We focus heavily on family friendly policies and continue to improve this offering.

We aim to become a business that represents the communities where we build by developing broader recruitment and selection practices which echo the diversity of our customers and communities. We are proud to partner with several organisations that support this approach including Leonard Cheshire Disability and their Change 100 Programme, EY Foundation and the #SeeMeJoinMe campaign.

Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Change 100 programme

Leonard Cheshire Disability aims to change the employment landscape for students and graduates with a disability by offering placements and work experience within a business environment. Taylor Wimpey have participated in this programme since 2015 offering summer placements across a variety of roles. Several students who have completed a placement with us have gone on to secure permanent roles in our business. The programme also serves as a great opportunity for the leaders in our business to understand more about how to accommodate a range of disabilities in the workplace.

We are achieving good momentum through our Leadership Teams and Business Unit Champions and have active Diversity & Inclusion Plans in each of our 24 Business Units. Clearly defined focus areas enable further inclusivity within our Company.

We have a number of strategic initiatives to drive further diversity and inclusion as well as several awareness campaigns that are planned and organised throughout the year by our Committee Members. These activities create excellent awareness and engagement opportunities for our employees to discuss and celebrate diversity and inclusion at Taylor Wimpey.
