Help us to shape the future
Our engineering and construction apprenticeship programmes offer an opportunity to play a role in building new and replacement infrastructure projects for the company.
Our repair and maintenance (R&M) teams look after the thousands of kilometres of pipes and infrastructure that keeps water moving around the region.
These apprenticeships are delivered by our construction division Wessex Engineering and Construction Services (WECS) which has teamed up with
Bridgwater College to provide a purpose-built educational facility that will give young apprentices the skills required to work in the water industry.
The new skills centre at the Cannington Campus gives apprentices the hands-on skills required to gain an NVQ Level 2 in the water industry. It is delivered through two week block courses throughout the programme which enables the apprentices to work
alongside our current utilities team, putting their learning into practice to repair and maintain typical pipework used to supply water.
The apprenticeship programme, developed by us in partnership with the college, offers the potential for apprentices to gain a full-time role in our main laying and repair and maintenance teams as well as achieving their NVQ qualification at the end of the two year programme.
To join this programme you will need to be keen to work outdoors and to train on how to operate a range of machinery and tools efficiently and safely.
The construction technician programme runs over two years and gives candidates the opportunity to rotate around the engineering & construction department while gaining a professional qualification through day release at university.
