As a company who are constantly striving to achieve more, we are always looking for individuals to join us who have the same passion for our future.
When looking to recruit the best individuals, from as wide a candidate pool as possible, we try to ensure the most forward thinking process and journey for the candidates. We run bespoke recruitment processes for all areas of the business and provide an assessment environment that is appropriate to the individual applicant. We use a variety of selection techniques including psychometric testing, personality profiling as well as more conventional methods like face to face interviewing and competency based assessments. Each role has a unique recruitment process as we understand that different jobs require very different skills that need to be assessed in different ways. We pride ourselves in a fair and consistent approach to all of our selection processes removing any potential barriers to those with a disability or learning difficulties.
We have a strong belief in promoting from within and when it comes to career progression the sky is the limit. Many of our senior leaders within the business have been with us for several years and joined us as graduates, apprentices or in junior management positions. We also run high potential programmes for those showing promise and competence to reach the next level in their careers. Our senior leadership and management development programmes are meticulously planned to ensure we create the right leadership qualities in our people. We take succession planning very seriously and are committed to ensuring top performers are aware of what their next move might be within the business.
Our people are our business and that’s why we invest so much time in them. Our Sales Academy is a great example of how we look to develop people through best in class training and using our most experienced leaders to develop those just beginning their career with Taylor Wimpey.
