Taylor wouldn’t be the business we are today without our people. We’re proud to support our team members with an engaging workplace where leadership and initiative are rewarded – and this is reflected in our high rates of employee satisfaction and retention.

While our collective success is important, we also celebrate the personal progress and achievements of individuals within our team. By providing ongoing learning and development, and opportunities to stretch their wings, we help our employees realise their potential throughout all stages of their career.

The Taylor Cadet Program aims to develop future leaders by providing employment opportunity and professional development experiences that support and complement a related course of external tertiary study. Cadet-ships are supportive pathways to a rewarding career at Taylor. Cadets receive ongoing training, guidance and support from workplace mentors.

The Cadet Program gives a broad overview of all aspects of construction related roles, an opportunity to experience the construction lifecycle, as well as the important support functions that help the seamless delivery of our projects and business dealings. The program covers areas such as bid management, estimating, contract administration, site management, workplace health and safety, post construction management, property development, design management and quality.

Upon successful completion of the Cadet Program, cadets will be offered a graduate position in the Taylor Graduate Program where they can focus on their chosen career path. Our Cadet Program is open for applications, via our website, in April and October each year.

Embarking on the journey of Taylor’s Cadet Program is a transformative experience, with each day bringing a new lesson, a new challenge to overcome, and a new triumph to celebrate. Not only is it the new technical skills that fuel my knowledge and growth, it is the collaboration of each of my project team members and the mentorship I receive that is invaluable, instilling a deep sense of responsibility and integrity that I carry to this day.

Taylor’s internal mentoring program taps into the existing knowledge, skills, and experience of our high performing employees with the aim of transferring these skills to newer or less experienced employees to advance their careers. Conversely, we believe that mentoring responsibilities can help even the most experienced of our employees become better leaders.

Taylor encourages engagement with external mentoring programs with industry member associations including the Property Council of Australia, and the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC).

Taylor understands that women play a critical role in construction and we’re actively working to drive gender balance across our business, and the industry. We’ve developed an industry-leading engagement program to help us do just that – Taylor Women in Construction (TWIC). Through TWIC, we work to strengthen internal and industry connections for all our female team members across all levels of the business.

Our goal is to achieve 30% female representation at Taylor by 2026. Currently, 16% of our employees are women.

Leading the way, over 50% of women at Taylor are employed in construction roles, well above the Australian industry average of 33%. (2021 figures)

Women make up 50% of the annual Cadet intake at Taylor.

At Taylor, we’re raising awareness of the challenges women face in our industry, taking positive action to redress the balance, and celebrating the multi-talented women breaking new ground in property and construction
