  • Apprenticeships

    An apprenticeship is a fantastic way to start your career and we offer a variety of roles – from engineering to customer service, construction to water operations and HR – you’ll discover a career in an industry that is both challenging and fulfilling. 

    Search our current vacancies to find an apprenticeship. 

    That is exactly what 24-year-old Joe Grimstead did. 

    He is currently on the water company’s water process technician apprenticeship. 

    He said: “At my age I didn’t feel I could afford to go to university to retrain but I wanted to be able to learn a new trade and gain qualifications while also earning money. 

    “Now I’ve got the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge from my colleagues, achieve a recognised qualification and have the chance to progress and grow my career in the future.”

      Joe Grimstead

    Many of those who joined us as apprentices have gone on to become senior manager such as Ashlea Lane, who is now director of water supply. Here's what he had to say:

    "I would absolutely recommend the apprenticeship route to others. My apprenticeship allowed me to secure a career at a great company where I have been able to advance through the organisation

    "My experience is that an apprenticeship was much more tailored to my interests and style of learning and allowed me to gain experience and skills while gaining qualifications."

    What's on offer?

    From engineers to scientists and construction operatives to data analysts, you will discover a range of careers in an industry that is both challenging and fulfilling.

    Depending on which apprenticeship roles you’re interested in you might work anywhere in our region from Bath to Poole, Taunton across to Salisbury. 

    We offer three different levels of apprenticeships:

    • level 2 apprenticeships – the same as five GCSEs A-C
    • level 3 apprenticeships – the same as A levels 
    • higher level apprenticeships – the same as HND/degrees.
