Eleanor Day and Ajeet Moore, Graduate Trainees at Taylor Wimpey, gave an informative talk to students about what life is like working for a housing developer and how Taylor Wimpey is building homes and communities sustainably. 

The visit to the school follows a donation of a Taylor Wimpey School Engagement Pack, an educational resource with a variety of activities, created by Taylor Wimpey’s graduate team as part of a UK wide initiative to inform and excite the next generation about the homebuilding industry and to raise awareness of the career opportunities available.

Peter Aldridge, Year 4 teacher at Barton Seagrave Primary School, said: “We are very grateful to Taylor Wimpey for taking the time to talk to our pupils. Eleanor and Ajeet did a great job of giving such a fun and engaging talk which was a perfect way for our students to see the different career opportunities they could potentially take later on in life.”

Eleanor Day adds: “It was an absolute pleasure speaking to the students about what life is like working for Taylor Wimpey and the commitments we have made to be more sustainable and to look after our environment. The students were very engaged and asked plenty of questions and we hope we inspired them to consider a career with us in the future.”
