VIDEO: Apply to join the next generation of water engineers


Anglian Water is offering an apprenticeship based in Milton Keynes.

The four-year programme will see the successful apprentice trained up as an electrical and mechanical engineer.

The final date for applications is April 1.

Alison Withers, head of the apprenticeship programme at Anglian Water, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to make a start in an exciting career bringing clean, healthy water to homes and industry in our region.

“The apprenticeship process will see the successful applicants fully supported along the way as they learn valuable skills. They will soon start to get to grips with a job on the frontline maintaining water and sewage pipes, pumping stations and treatment works.

“90 per cent of the people who joined us as apprentices over the past ten years still work for us – this is well above average and shows how rewarding they have found their roles.

“But places are limited and time is now running out to get applications in, so I would urge anyone looking for challenge and opportunity to get in touch.”

To be eligible for an apprenticeship applicants must have five GSCEs or equivalent with grades A to C, including maths and English. They must also live within 30 minutes of their work base.

In the first year apprentices will attend Grantham College, living and studying full-time with other apprentices. They will then start working out in the field with the oversight of a mentor, but continue to spend one week in four at college.
