Apprentice kick-starts his career with Taylor Wimpey Midlands
Taylor Wimpey Midlands apprentice Josh Wilson is building a career in site management by learning on the job at our new developments across the region.
Josh, 23, started his career with Taylor Wimpey six years ago as an NVQ Level 2 Carpentry apprentice, after completing his Level 1 qualification at Stratford College. Keen to use the skills he had acquired to contribute to a large company, Josh applied to Taylor Wimpey after hearing good things about our opportunities for career progression. After working hard to complete his HNC in Construction and the Built Environment, Josh is now using his skills as an Assistant Site Manager at Wheatfield Manor.
Josh said: “I’ve been so impressed with the support that has been on offer to me during my time at Taylor Wimpey. From the very beginning of my journey to graduating with my HNC last year, I’ve been encouraged to be the best I can be. Through every aspect of my work - both educational and practical - my achievements have been acknowledged and I really feel like Taylor Wimpey are proud to have me as a member of staff.”

Taylor Wimpey gets children at St Nicholas Church of England First school reading with donation
To celebrate World Book Day we donated £1,000 to St Nicholas Church of England First School in Codsall, which went towards updating the reading scheme at the school. In addition to the donation, we also gave the school 130 copies of Taylor Wimpey's children's book 'How we build your home with Millie Mortar and Handy Andy'.
Commenting on the donation, Jodie Parker, Headteacher at St Nicholas Church of England First School, said: "I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey on behalf of everyone at our school. We really appreciate their donation, which will go a long way towards the reading scheme. Books are a great way to fire up children's imaginations and to teach them about the world around them, so it'll be lovely to refresh our exciting reading scheme."
Anne Wallace, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Midlands, said "World Book Day is a great opportunity to celebrate books and reading and, as part of our commitment to giving back to the communities in which we build, it was our pleasure to donate £1,000 towards replenishing the reading scheme at St Nicholas Church of England First School."
