What is it like to be an apprentice at Wessex Water?
We recently caught up with Rising Star award winner Josh Gatton to learn a bit more about life as an apprentice at Wessex Water.
Josh talks about how he came across the opportunity, what the role involved and how the company has supported him beyond his apprenticeship.
Tell us about how your journey at Wessex Water began!
Josh: “Soon after relocating from Johannesburg, South Africa to the UK, I did my A levels in physics, psychology and product design. Halfway through my studies the school organised a trip to a careers fair where I first learned about apprenticeships.
“Apprenticeships were unheard of in South Africa and the more I learned the more they appealed to me.
“I then saw Wessex Water were advertising apprenticeships at their careers fair at Claverton Down in Bath, so I attended and met some members of the Engineering and Sustainable Delivery (ESD) Mechanical and Engineering team, who guided me towards applying for a higher apprenticeship in engineering.”
