With planning in place, sub-contractors and materials on site ready to go, it’s now up to our Production team to manage the delivery of our housing developments.
Our colleagues working in Production oversee all activity on site, from managing our subcontractor representatives on site to organising the build programme and ensuring the development is on schedule in order to welcome its new residents.
We take part in the National House-Building Council (NHBC) Pride in the Job scheme, where our sites are independently assessed by the NHBC across 28 different standards. In 2015 63 of our site managers were recognised with a Pride in the Job Quality Award, and 20 were awarded a Seal of Excellence. Three of our site managers were also named Regional Winners.
Production is the backbone of our build process. We build over 10,000 homes a year. Consistency in quality of build, safety standards and communication with our customers are all key components to a successful production team. We look for people who have the skills to manage projects effectively, build strong relationships with contractors and all trades on site. If you are looking for a career in Production with Taylor Wimpey then you’ll be joining a team with a passion for getting things right first time and exceeding customer expectations.
Career prospects in this exciting part of the business are excellent and a number of the site workers will go on to become Site Managers and in some cases directors in the future. As with all our office based roles, we pride ourselves in a diverse workforce on site and recognise the importance in offering opportunities to anyone that can demonstrate the right skills and behaviours.
Most people train and gain vocational qualifications for a career in Production or become qualified through an Apprenticeship. A good place to look at for these is the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) website where you can see if these kinds of jobs might suit you.
