Industry: Construction and Civil Engineering Department: Graduate (all departments) Job Title: Graduate Trainee

What are the best and worst things about your job?

The culture - Taylor Wimpey is a very people focused company. There is lots of support when things aren't going well and lots of recognition when they are! There is a large focus on doing things right and we are never put into a position where we are expected to do the wrong thing. Graduates rotate around all of the departments initially giving invaluable business breadth and it allows for a more informed decision as to which department suits best. Everyone at Taylor Wimpey is very approachable. From people working on site, in the office and all the way up through directors, MD's, DMD's - you will get the chance to meet some very senior people and they will always be happy to give you some time and have a chat.

Industry: Construction and Civil Engineering Department: Graduate Job Title: Graduate Management Trainee

What are the best and worst things about your job?

Rotating around every department in the company gives me a fantastic overview of the function of every facet of the company, in addition to being able to choose my career path. Once I decide on a department, it will make me a very well rounded employee, with a greater appreciation of how my work will impact and influence other departments.
This is also enhanced by getting to experience working in different business units and regions, gaining broader experience of the different ways in which things are done.
You're also not stuck in the office 24/7. Working in housebuilding means you're frequently out on site visits, whether walking over a potential land purchase or visiting a working site, you're regularly out and about. You also get to meet and connect with all manner of different people!

Graduate, Varied at Taylor Wimpey

Application Advice:

Just be yourself. Company is more interested in people with a good approach to life rather than people who know more about the industry (it seems).

Interview Advice:

Final interview much harder than the assessment centre interview. Be willing to back yourself in your answers.

For the final interview, it is a good idea to be commercially aware - especially if you are going into strat.

Graduate, All Departments at Taylor Wimpey

Application Advice:

Be sure that you are 100% comfortable with moving around every 6 months, and likely quite far from home.

The application process is lengthy, but with each next stage you get through, you learn a lot more about the company, and in my case, it was during the assessment centre that I realised I not only wanted to be on the graduate scheme, but I wanted to work for the company.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. It's daunting and you may feel like you have to be more or less of yourself in order to make a good impression, but honestly be true to who you are. It makes you human and easier for the interviewers to connect with you.

Make sure you understand the industry, know what is going on commercially.

When asked to give an example of when you have demonstrated certain skills, this doesn't only mean in a job situation. Use any life event that required you to apply the skill.

Application Advice:

Use your experiences to show why you are a good fit. It doesn't matter if you have had no experience in the housebuilding/construction industry beforehand. If you show how you can be an asset to the business it will stand you in good stead.

Be wary of the rotations, not just through departments but to new office locations. It is what you sign up for so be prepared to move every six months. If you don't think this is something you could handle then the scheme may not be for you.

Interview Advice:

Do your research. This is key. Make sure you understand the company and the industry basics, such as competitors, current difficulties and what the future looks like. It shows that you are interested and you have been diligent in your preparation.

The main thing is just to be yourself, anything else will be seen. If you get to this stage there is clearly something they liked about you so don't change just do your research and impress them. Don't be scared, the people who interview you are human as well. They will ask you to draw on the experiences from work, university or travelling. They want to know about you!

Application Advice:

Be excited about the opportunities offered by the role. The process seems long at times but nothing is too difficult about it.

Interview Advice:

Research the wider company culture and aims. If you understand the companies key targets and express them through your interview/presentation you'll have a great chance of being successful.

Application Advice:

Be open-minded and flexible. This job is not for close minded individuals who need absolute structure and certainty. You will be required to change roles and locations on a bi-annually basis, this should not be viewed as a negative but instead as a learning opportunity.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself, know the basics of the industry and the company and be analytical.

Management Trainee, General at Taylor Wimpey

Application Advice:

Be enthusiastic! They must look through many, many CV's and applications, you need something that makes you sound very keen and like a breath of fresh air.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself... obviously, Taylor Wimpey are looking for people of a certain level, but they also seem to like down to earth, personable people that fit into the culture. You will need to be able to work in a group, prepare and present a presentation and be able to react well to being challenged - offering astute, well thought solutions.

Finance Graduate, Finance at Taylor Wimpey

Application Advice:

Be Yourself. One of Taylor Wimpey's biggest assets is our people. Let your CV show who you are and what you are passionate about. On assessment days, let your personality show and be honest.

Interview Advice:

Again, just be yourself. The Interviewers want to understand your background and why you are passionate about the company. My biggest advice would be to do your research about the industry, understand the wider issues within the industry, rather than too much detail on the specific company.

Graduate, General at Taylor Wimpey
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The company look at the person more than the experience/qualifications so with the video interview, telephone interview and assessment centre, aim to be confident, challenge ideas you don't agree with and ask as many questions as you can. It's hard to know the role and company fully when going through the application process and you want to know you'll enjoy the job so ask all the things you want to know.

Interview Advice:

I was asked questions about why I wanted to work in this industry and why Taylor Wimpey specifically. A lot of the questions were competency based because they were really interested in getting to know you, so asked questions about myself and my background too. I think my advice for the interviews is that the interviewers genuinely want you to feel relaxed and really appreciate charismatic people.

Application Advice:

Try to obtain some relevant experience beforehand as well as getting your tickets sorted: SMSTS, First-aid, SSSTS, CSCS. This will help you hit the ground running and put you ahead of the competition.

Interview Advice:

Research the company, be yourself and have fun!

Graduate Management Trainee, Head Office at Taylor Wimpey
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

The basics: team work, team leadership, problem-solving, past work experience, past education, extra-curricular - standard job application preparation.

Practise video interviews, telephone interviews, online tests etc. so that you are ready for when this application comes around.

Make use of university careers services e.g. interview practise sessions / assessment centre sessions / CV building sessions to ensure that you are fully prepared (I could not stress this enough).

Interview Advice:

Be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in the industry, as well as personal motivations for applying for the job role.

Research the current climate of the industry - customer service to name just one has become increasingly important.

A cliché one: be yourself! Taylor Wimpey are looking for genuine people so be open about your background and I would encourage discussing anything that you do that is extra-curricular (provided that it is relevant).

Application Advice:

Don't worry if your degree isn't explicitly relevant to housebuilding, but do make sure to show your passion for personal progression, innovation and how your alternative background can add to the companies diversity.

You can be taught processes, but you can't be taught drive and proactivity - these are essential qualities to demonstrate, as the graduate scheme is loosely structured in order for you to show your tenacity.

Interview Advice:

Think about the biggest challenges facing the industry in the next 5+ years and what you can do to help combat and mitigate for those. The skills shortage is a major issue which the entire construction industry faces and will no doubt arise.

Do your research! Make sure you know the basics of the business, know the faces, know your local sites, and try and gain an understanding of the key functions.

Always play towards your strengths when faced with a scenario that phases you in a group/individual assessment. Try to think out of the box and look at things from an unconventional angle.

Interview Advice:

Be confident, be yourself and most importantly show an enthusiasm/passion for the degree you previously undertook. From my time with the company Taylor Wimpey look at the individual more than the degree/work that's gone before them - if you are passionate and ready to work you'll excel.

Application Advice:

Take every stage seriously.
The phone interview is a tricky dynamic, be pleasant and honest, if you're not, they will be able to see through you immediately.

Interview Advice:

Practice public speaking, you're asked to stand up and speak on more than one occasion.
There will always be a group activity and an individual activity. Always make yourself stand out in the group activity for the right reasons, always be the first to speak, even if its asking everyone else what they think, it shows confidence and decisiveness. Be the person to bring in the other people that aren't contributing much.

Application Advice:

- Applications are easier said than done, my biggest advice is to be yourself as TW can teach you the skills, not the personality. If you come into the process and you are fake or someone you're not, you have to be fake for the rest of your time in the job. If you come in and are yourself then you know if you got the job, it's right for you and if you didn't get the job you know TW wasn't the place for you to shine.

- Extra-curriculum activities do you wonders!

- Think really hard about why you want to work for TW, your reason/story/motive can sink or swim your application.

Interview Advice:

- Similar to my advice on the application - be yourself and showcase your personality rather than your qualifications.

- It's okay to make mistakes!!! You don't have to be perfect, especially in interviews and assessment centres! In the interview process etc. It's more about how you deal with the issues rather than actually solving them.

- In my final interview, I was asked to give a presentation on building on green belt land - my advice would be to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse...know what you want to say and how.

- Convince yourself you have 5 other job offers so when you come to the interview with TW you are confident as you can fall back on your 'fake job offers' - this helped me as it made me less nervous about this interview being the be all/end all.

Application Advice:

Be yourself, the company care more about the people they are employing than the knowledge you have. Especially as a graduate, you are not expected to know anything about the construction industry before joining the company.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself during assessment centres - they are not a competition so do not try to compete as the company will notice this straight away. Also, they often ask questions around your willingness to relocate etc, as this is a massive part of the scheme.

2) Commercial Awareness; keep up to date with current affairs, news and it doesn't hurt to know the current share price.

Application Advice:

Ensure that you express yourself as a well rounded individual throughout each phase of the application process. This can be done by providing a variety of examples when highlighting your qualities and attributes. Remember that Taylor Wimpey appreciates that you are not going to have all the knowledge and skills of a house building expert from day one, however they are interested in candidates that have the "right frame of mind" to learn and develop, so focus on demonstrating this.
Please also research the company and its market (including competitors!) before a telephone/face to face interview as this can impress the interviewers. For the Assessment Day remember to be a team player and be ready to showcase your team playing capabilities.

Interview Advice:

Fundamentally be yourself in a professional and approachable capacity. If you can, some practise with friends or family can boost your confidence. You may be tasked with preparing material beforehand such as a presentation so should ensure that it is tailored to your style of working. Remember if you're given a task to do a presentation with the choice of 2 titles, the interviewers on the day are going to have seen numerous other candidates with the same facts and style of a standard power point. Therefore make yours interesting and interactive by trying to include references to facts unheard of and how those could potentially be relevant. This should help you stand out!

The final interviews require preparation. Researching the company is key, but perhaps more importantly learning about the industry and the economic environment in which it operates will be most important.

Make sure you have done the necessary preparation for each stage. I don't believe you need to massively stand out from the crowd when being interviewed, just present yourself in the best way possible and be confident.

The government is investing in housing, attempting to rectify the housing crisis within the UK. This industry offers a great platform to build a long and successful career due to the need for housing in this country.

At final interview I was asked which area of the business I was interested in initially, so make sure you have researched these areas and what they do.

Application Advice:

A distinct feature of this programme is the requirement to move office every six months. Although TW helps you with each move, it would be unwise to apply if you aren't comfortable with this. Don't worry if your degree is unrelated to construction/house building as long as you possess a sensible outlook and a willingness to learn. TW is looking for the right type of person regardless of technical know-how.

Interview Advice:

Taylor Wimpey has a great set of core values and tries to recognise the best in everyone. At an interview be prepared, be honest and be confident of yourself but be aware that you don't necessarily need to be the loudest person in the room to get noticed. With house building constantly featuring in the press (both good and bad), it would be a good idea to make sure you have an up to date knowledge of current industry news which you could link to TW. An idea of the business model could also be helpful.

It is important to get an understanding on the housing industry and also do some research on the company. looking through the annual report and website can be a good starting point to expand your knowledge about the company.

Be yourself and it is important to be honest. Many people in the graduate scheme have studied different disciplines and therefore it is important to understand, although it is a construction company,TW don't expect graduates to be construction geniuses. The graduate scheme helps assist you on areas of development and consolidating your strengths; be enthusiastic, ambitious and explain what you can bring to the company.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself and express your personality. You'll be working with a range of people at TW so good communition skills and the ability to get along with different workers is important.

Prepare your competency questions. Think of situations you have demonstrated the competencies TW look for and be concise when you address this; situation, task, action and result.

Most importantly do your research about the company and the construction industry.

Graduate Management Trainee, at Taylor Wimpey

Application Advice:

You should do a lot of research on the company before you go to your first interview. By doing this it shows that you are interested in the company, prepared, hardworking and organised. It will also help you make the decision as to whether or not the company and the role is right for you.

You need to have an ability to quickly build rapport with others. Even with people who perhaps you wouldn’t normally associate yourself with outside of work. To do this show an interest in others roles, be respectful at all times, be yourself and stay grounded. Be kind, kindness will take you a long way. If you are able to be all of this, then people are more willing to help you, which ultimately will benefit your career and experiences at Taylor Wimpey.

I believe the next two bits of advice are the most important:

1 - Make the industry a lifestyle decision; make housebuilding a genuine hobby of yours. It shouldn't be simply a 9 - 5. The more effort you put in the more you get back from Taylor Wimpey, and the better you become. Read estate gazette, explore right move and zoopla, go to planning committees, network with external consultants and with your colleagues.

2 - Do not be competitive with fellow graduates. No two people are the same. A lot of people who join the scheme will have come from very different backgrounds and will therefore already be at different stages in the industry. You should only worry about how you are doing on the scheme and only be competitive with yourself. Remember some people react negatively to that competitive spirit, which might prevent them from demonstrating their ability.
Everyone who joins the scheme is aiming to become managers and directors one day, but it will take everyone different lengths of time. The best thing to do is to be in a role which is suitable for your existing ability, and therefore do not worry yourself about the speed of progression in comparison to your colleagues.

Interview Advice:

Prepare; Read Taylor Wimpey website, visit a Taylor Wimpey development and read Estate Gazette.
Try predicting what questions you might be asked and prepare answers to these. The likelihood is that some of your predictions will be questions they will ask.

Demonstrate your ability during interview. If you think you have something worth mentioning then say it. If you don’t know the answer to one of the questions don’t be afraid to say so.

Be confident.
Be yourself.
Enjoy it! The more relaxed you are hopefully the more relaxed the interviewer will be.

Application Advice:

With the application and CV/covering letter I would say the most important thing is to make sure it is checked and checked again, mistakes on these really demonstrate carelessness and a lack of attention to detail.

Interview Advice:

The interviews were both very different, the first one was more focused on competency based questions while the second was a lot less structured and included a 5 min presentation.

With the competency based questions a lot of different skills and attributes were mentioned and examples of when you demonstrated that skill were needed. I would advise preparing a large list of examples which can be used to demonstrate a few different skills, that way as you get a question you can pick the most appropriate situation. Also when thinking of options don’t stick to work or university related examples, things at home or within your social life can just as easily demonstrate good time management and will also reflect more about yourself as a person.
Questions such as ‘what is the biggest risk you have taken?’ and ‘what are your best and worst qualities?’ were also thrown into the interview.

Other advice would be to definitely do your research and show that you have taken the time to understand the market and how the company operates. Things like mission statements and core values of the company are really useful to know.

On top of this, it is important to be comfortable with the fact you are nationally flexible. You could be working in Exeter on a Friday and start your next rotation in Scotland on the Monday. The job requires a lot of travel so ensuring you have a reliable car is also essential.

During the application process, it is beneficial to demonstrate your personality. Make sure this can be seen in your application.

Interview Advice:

It's easy to say but try and stay relaxed. I found the interview really good, the questions were hard but they got the best out of me. Where I struggled to answer, the question was asked in a different way to ensure they got a full understanding of me.

It is also important to be yourself and show your personality. Check the share price before you go into your interview. I was asked this question in mine.

Another good question was - what was the last mistake you made? I had never been asked this question in previous interviews and was not expecting it.

Application Advice:

The graduate scheme is a highly regarded role within the business and you are treated and looked after really well, on the proviso that you work hard and are ready and willing to progress and feed your knowledge back for the benefit of the company. The more willing you are to be geographically mobile, the better your knowledge and understanding will become and furthermore the wider scope there will be for progression.

Interview Advice:

Ensure that you have a firm understanding of the company history, from right at its origin to todays share price. Perhaps visiting one or two local Taylor Wimpey sites will be a good benefit before attending the interview to gain specific professional knowledge.

Being a national house builder has its benefits. The opportunity to travel to different corners of the country with the same familiar business environment is comforting.
The company is part of the FTSE100, which enables all workers to become shareholders, and have vested interests in performance
The quality of product and service is well known for being much better than the industry average, so there is a great sense of pride in the work that everyone does

Reputation of house builders can often be demotivating.
Housing is always a topical subject in politics, so the performance of the company is at the mercy of legislation and is prone to change.

Salary, the graduate salary seems very competitive when compared with other graduate schemes. In addition, is the work life balance and the flexible hours really helps this.

Worst:

Often during the departmental rotations you have to ask the department you're in for work. As you're only with them for a short period, you don't have your own workload so you are reliant on being set work from the department you're in.
