We know that the volume of people with experience within our sector is finite. We also know that if we do not explore other sectors for talent, we will not be able to innovate and move the business forward. A different background or perspective will support Taylor Wimpey to achieve its goals and face industry challenges in a more creative way. We also realise that in order to attract top people from outside of our industry, who may have the skills and experience we are looking for, we need to look beyond our industry and traditional channels of recruitment.

At Taylor Wimpey, we have successfully recruited and developed our staff from the Armed forces. This is what they said...
Lieutenant Claire Rossiter, pictured above, was working as a member of the Media Operations branch out in the Middle East before embarking on a career at Taylor Wimpey as a Communications Manager.
“Working in such a fast-paced multinational environment was incredibly challenging. Media is a diverse role and as a Media Officer for the Navy, you end up being involved in all kinds of different projects, often dealing with challenging and evolving scenarios, while juggling a range of multinational actors. This can be anything from standard press releases, covering foreign VIP visits, to deck hopping from one ship to another in helicopters as part of an exercise. Today, I use many of the skills I acquired in the Navy as part of my day to day job here at Taylor Wimpey”
