Both our East and West Scotland teams have released a video from some of its employees to highlight the life-changing opportunities that apprenticeships offer young people, and the wider benefits they provide for the housebuilding industry and the country as a whole.

Designed to attract more young people to consider the industry and the wide range of potential careers that it offers, our support for Scottish Apprentice Week is aimed at celebrating the wide range of careers it supports, and the positive impact this has on individuals, businesses and the economy.

David Blair, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said: “We aim to be an inclusive employer and to attract, retain and promote employees from all backgrounds. As a company, we are reaping the benefits of investing in apprenticeships and nurturing the next generation of employees – and we would urge other businesses to do so too.

Gavin Hamilton, Managing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, added: “Our apprenticeship, management trainee and graduate programmes offer a structured path into the company to provide the talent that we need to future-proof our business, and we would encourage young people to take a look at the industry with fresh eyes. Housebuilding offers such a wide variety of roles and there’s a breadth of opportunity for young people to discover.”
