Future leaders programme

Think you could you be the next CEO, or director of water? If so we want you!

Graduate imageWe’re looking for the future leaders of our business. If you think you have what it takes then our leadership scheme is the one for you.

This role is a fantastic opportunity. You’ll see yourself developing throughout the scheme and you’ll be taking charge of budgets, effectively managing a team and seeing your hard work pay off when a project you’re in charge of is delivered on time, on budget and to a high quality.

We’ve got ambitious plans for our business and we want you to help us drive these plans forward.

In your first two years you’ll be leading projects that are designed for you to get to grips with the businesses. You’ll learn how we work and just what goes into delivering water to customers’ taps. You’ll not be alone, and a mentor will providing you support, helping you to succeed in your career.

And not only that, you’ll also be working towards an extra qualification too. We encourage you to realise your potential and seek charted status from a body of your choice.

It’ll take some hard work and dedication to reach the top levels, but if you’ve got the drive and ambition, come and join us.

Some of our current senior leaders started their career on this scheme.

To apply, you’ll need a minimum 2:1 BSc or BA degree (or equivalent) in any relevant technical, scientific, environmental, engineering or business related subject.
