Mr. Taylor is a career civil servant, having dedicated over 30 years of service to the Turks and Caicos Islands Government.  He began his career in 1983 as the Deputy Registrar of Lands and has since held the positions of: Superintendent Counterpart in the Offshore Finance Department now the Financial Services Commission; Deputy Chief Accountant in charge of the Providenciales Treasury; Deputy Revenue Controller in charge of the Providenciales Revenue Control Unit; Collector of Customs in charge of the Customs Department and in 2013 was promoted to the post of Deputy Secretary, Ministry of Border Control and Labour, a post he held prior to departing the islands in September 2014 on study leave.

Wanting to further his career in the public service and to fill a gap which he deemed necessary across several areas of the service, Mr. Taylor through the assistance of the Civil Service Professional Development Fund along with personal funds, decided to pursue studies in the field of Law at Buckingham University in Buckingham England, where he successfully completed an LLB (Hons) 2.1, LLM International and Commercial Law (Merit), Financial Services Law Specialist and was a Bar Professional Training Course candidate. 

Commenting on his return and the completion of his studies Mr. Taylor said;It is an honour to serve as the Deputy Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, Environment, Heritage Maritime and Gaming and I am proud to be a part of a team that plays such an important role in Government. As I embark on this new journey, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the persons that supported me over the years and look forward to using the skills and knowledge acquired abroad to make meaningful contributions to the advancement and further development of the Turks and Caicos Islands.”
