About us

Taylor Wimpey is one of the largest homebuilders in the UK, operating from 23 regional offices across England, Scotland and Wales. We were formed by the merger of George Wimpey and Taylor Woodrow in 2007, and have operations in the UK and Spain. We aim to be the developer of choice for customers, employees, communities and shareholders.

Here at Taylor Wimpey we foster a culture of equality, inclusion and diversity and commit to creating an environment where everyone can be their whole self at work. We know that as an organisation and as an industry we have a lot of work to do in this space but we are committed to change. Our Board of Directors is now 50% women and we are proud to have recruited over 50% women into our Graduate programme in the last 3 consecutive years. Our BAME representation for all of our early entry programmes is also growing year on year helping us create a more diverse workforce for the future. We recognise that there is more work to be done and we are striving to improve diversity and inclusion across all areas of our business. Our race and ethnicity, LGBTQ+ and working parents networks are just the start. We have a Diversity & Inclusion committee led and sponsored by some of the most senior people in our business as well as a community of ambassadors across our regional businesses who are responsible for raising awareness of current initiatives.

We integrate sustainability into the design and construction of our homes and developments and are working towards our target to reduce carbon emissions from customer homes in use by 75% by 2030. Our standard house types integrate energy efficiency measures and other sustainability features, and from 2021, a working from home area that can help customers reduce their travel footprint. But that's not all; as well as energy and climate change, our sustainability standards include nature, water and floor risk, ventilation, sound insulation, air quality, materials and waste and quality, connectivity and accessibility.
