Project management

If you fancy getting your teeth stuck into a multi-million pound budget, then we’re looking for people like you.

Fast-track to the top of the career ladder on our project management scheme. Are you ambitious? Keen to take on responsibility? Fancy being in charge of multi-million pound budgets?

Apply today.

Project management graduates are pivotal to ensuring the delivery of our big capital projects.
From modernising one of the biggest treatment plants in Europe, to being in charge of connecting West Cumbria to our network via laying a pipe through the Lake District National Park. These are the types of projects you could be responsible for.

So what makes our scheme stand out from the crowd?

We’ve got unique training schemes, and by joining us you’ll be working towards professional qualifications and ultimately chartered status of the AMP RPP status. Most of our graduates actually reach chartership just a year after completing their graduate scheme.

Working closely with our engineering design teams and contractors, you'll make sure the project progresses well, along with meeting external stakeholders and the public to champion our work. You’ll also experience project delivery from a design management, contract and commercial management, programme controls and project coordination perspective.

One thing’s for sure, no day will be the same. As you progress, you’ll be taking on more responsibility and working independently on a range of projects. From small value schemes, to the ones where you can really get stuck into that are high profile and complex.

And the hard work does pay off. With your invested time and effort, who knows where this career could take you? 

We have opportunities at our Lingley Mere offices and in Cumbria.

Ian, project delivery graduate

“The project I’ve worked on that has me most excited is the Haweswater Outage Project. I’m really looking forward to taking out such a major part of our water infrastructure and ensuring that we make the repairs required to keep water flowing to our customers.

“Another highlight would be managing my first major project. I’ve been working on a project at our Fleetwood wastewater treatment works in the early investigation and design phases. I’ve been managing all the risks and putting together the business case, which I will shortly be presenting for further investment. It’s been a really busy and stressful time, but I’ve really enjoyed it and learned more than I imagined I could about project management and my own capability.”
