We have a strong apprenticeship history spanning a number of years. Our award-winning programme will allow you to gain relevant qualifications while getting paid to do a real job and delivering vital services to our customers. Our experience of developing and supporting apprentices means we know how to not only give you the necessary training and education but also the mentoring and support to help you make the most of the wide range of opportunities we offer.
This unique approach means most of our apprentices stay with us following their training, with several now fulfilling senior management roles.

While some of our apprenticeships require specific qualifications, the most important thing for us is your attitude. At Wessex Water, we are passionate about delivering excellent service to our customers. We value every team member at every level of the organisation because we know they all have a vital contribution to make.

So we're looking for people with enthusiasm to learn and genuine interest in doing the best job possible. You'll be developing practical work skills while learning on the job and, for our E&C and operations apprentices, this means you'll need to be ready to work outside in any weather! If you're willing to work hard, open to learning and ready to contribute to our team, please get in touch.

You can apply for all our programmes at once by clicking APPLY below quoting job reference REQ001969. The closing date is 19 February 2018. Assessments will take place during March and April 2018, with a planned start date of August 2018. During the application process we'll work with you to pick our best apprenticeship opportunity for you!
