Housebuilder commits to providing opportunities for youngsters in Scotland

TAYLOR Wimpey West Scotland has announced it has committed to the Young Person’s Guarantee scheme, which provides opportunities for 16-24-year-olds in Scotland through jobs, apprenticeships, further and higher education, training programmes and volunteering.

With the support of the firm’s local Developing the Young Workforce (DYW) group/local partner, the housebuilder said revealed it plans to promote its management trainee, graduate and apprenticeship vacancies.

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland will also be engaging with local schools to create work experience opportunities and encourage more young people to consider careers in construction and housebuilding.

Taylor Wimpey West Scotland currently has 15 developments of new homes across East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire, North and South Lanarkshire, Glasgow, and Ayrshire.

David Blair, MD for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, said, “We are pleased to announce our commitment to the Young Person’s Guarantee. As an organisation, we believe that investing in young people is an investment in a successful long-term future for our company. The Young Person’s Guarantee will make it easier for us to connect with young people.”

Bob Davidson, programme director for Developing the Young Workforce West, added, “We are delighted to have Taylor Wimpey West Scotland, a regional business that forms part of one of the largest residential developers in the UK, give their support to the YPG. By doing so they are continuing to recognise the importance of developing their young workforce and offering opportunities for young people.”
