Family affair for Taylor Wimpey Exeter

Housebuilding must run in the blood for recently appointed Sales Executive Olivia Philp, based at our popular Monterey Park development in Bovey Tracey, Devon.

Olivia’s aunt Viv Trivett has worked for us for seven years and is currently based at Dunstone Gardens in Elburton, Plymouth, while Olivia’s mum has also worked for us and her dad is a builder.

Vivien, from St Mellion, Cornwall, says: “I had been working in fashion retail when I saw an advert for a part-time vacancy with Taylor Wimpey. The idea of helping people to choose and plan their new home really appealed to me, and within a very short space of time I was offered a development site of my own to oversee as the Sales Executive.

“I love the variety of the job – no two days are ever the same. You get to meet some great people and I love guiding them through the customer journey, from the point of enquiry to their moving in day.

“Olivia is the daughter of my youngest brother, who’s a self-employed builder, so she obviously gets her love of housebuilding from him! She joined Taylor Wimpey a few months ago and this is her first job. She did her first training with me and she’s doing very well.”
