Our regional commercial teams are integral to the successful delivery of every Taylor Wimpey site. The function serves as the linchpin between our Technical and Production functions and makes the reality of a Taylor Wimpey development come to life.

Our Commercial teams are involved throughout the development process, providing critical information on build costs and supply chain management to ensure the business delivers award winning quality homes for the best possible price. They cost up the materials and labour required to complete a build and work closely with the construction team to make any adjustments throughout the production process.

Finance

Financial reporting, forecasting and analysis are essential for any of our businesses to function effectively.

Each of Taylor Wimpey’s regional businesses has a finance team that drives the commercial performance of their respective business and are responsible for providing valuable reports to our Group Finance team based in Head Office. Led by their Finance Director, each of these teams are vital to the financial structure of the organisation.

Through quarterly forecasts and monthly accounts, they provide key data to the board and enable some of the most important strategic decisions for the business.

In the majority of cases, our finance vacancies require successful candidates to have gained a qualification from one of the formally recognised bodies for accountancy such as CIMA or ACCA. However, we do also look to recruit both externally and via our graduate programme at entry level and support employees in their studies.

Land and Planning

Our business begins with the purchase of high-quality land, bought at the appropriate time from a variety of sources – the public notifying us of an opportunity, to land agents bringing an idea forward. Careful consideration is given as our land team research and develop ideas for a master plan. Creative solutions come forward as the team plan a viable scheme that works for everyone.

The scheme then goes out for public consultation, a hugely important part of our process, where our team listen, and manage the public’s expectations. Ideas and suggestions are worked through as our planning team prepare a planning application for submission to the Local Authority. After planning approval, the ‘site’ is handed over to our Technical and Commercial teams for the next stage of the process.

A typical entry level position in our Land and Planning teams would be a Land Negotiator and progression from this role could take a number of different paths, either into Planning or Land Manager positions or into one of our Regional Strategic Land teams. People that work in Land and Planning will typically have a vested interest and strong knowledge of the relevant legislation and be well connected with local government.
