Our South Wales team has provided support to help raise money for a major refurbishment at the Tŷ Hafan hospice, in Sully. Tŷ Hafan is a paediatric palliative care charity, dedicated to providing vital free care to children with life-limiting illnesses and supporting their families. The hospice is currently undertaking a vital refurbishment project to update their facilities and bring them in line with changes in medical needs. This includes the creation of a ‘Transition Suite’, an area which provides a safe environment for peer to peer support. We believe in the wellbeing of the communities that we build and we are proud of our staff and their involvement in helping raise funds in a variety of ways for such a worthwhile cause.

    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Taylor Wimpey (Stone, Staffordshire, West Midlands, England) in Mar 2020

    Interview

    Online application - general form to fill out and send to the company
    Video interview - Do your research, they give you time to answer the questions and be yourself, make sure you know why you want to work for Taylor Wimpey and why you would suit the role.
    Assessment centre - you receive a phone call rather quickly if you have been successful, the assessment centre gives you a chance to meet Taylor Wimpey graduates and employees from head office etc. You get to ask questions and find out more, they reimburse you for any travel. Really friendly and welcoming, everyone gives you the opportunity to make yourself known and welcome. You will carry out group tasks, an individual presentation and short interview with a more senior members of the company. You also meet your recruiter who supports you during the process. After the assessment centre they provide you with feedback rather quickly and let you know if you have been successful.
    One to one interview with senior members - this process was carried out during the Covid-19 pandemic. Credit to the company who still gave graduates a chance to become a part of the company, I was really pleased that they carried out teams interviews giving you the chance to discuss and meet Taylor Wimpey senior members. This process requires you to prepare a presentation in which you are provided a set of topics prior to the interview. You will then be asked a range of interview questions and questions about the presentation given. The interviewers make you feel comfortable and not pressured during the process, very friendly and welcoming.
    Offer - if you have been successful or not, you still get provided with feedback. If you have been successful you are told quickly, the recruiters are great at being communicative, in this case mine was Gemma, who is extremely friendly and supportive.
    Overall, the recruitment process is extremely welcoming and the culture of the company is what has made me accept the offer to join Taylor Wimpey!
