Severn Trent to create over 100 new jobs through apprentice scheme

Posted onPosted on 16th Jan

Severn Trent’s  apprentice programme is open to applications.

The Midlands based company is set to create 100 new jobs through the apprentice applications – allowing people to earn and lean across 30 different varied roles and programmes.

The opportunities range from operations, engineering, digital, technology, finance, environment and much more.

The company said apprenticeships were great for anyone looking for their first stint in the working world from school, or even if they were later on in their career and want a change. The schemes are available to anyone, regardless of who they are, background, age or where they live.

Jade Pearson, New Talent lead at Severn Trent, said: “What better way to kick off the New Year, than to open up applications ready to welcome our next wave of fantastic new talent into the business, as we continue to create work opportunities for hundreds of people living in the Midlands. We’re lucky that we have such a varied programme, and so many different options for people to consider – and this year we’ve even added seven new different programmes.

“While we do have the vital operational, technical and engineering roles that you’d expect with a water company to help keep everything flowing, we actually also now have roles within software development, digital tech design and governance, as well as business, finance, environment, cyber security and even an opportunity to work in our laboratories. Our roles are as diverse as the region we live and work in, so there’s something for everyone to explore, no matter where you’re from or who you are.”

Severn Trent’s apprenticeships allow people the chance to learn and earn, and if they successfully pass, are guaranteed a job.

Nathan Worton, 34, is in the third year of his apprenticeship. After working in retail for several years and studying psychology, he felt a role in HR would be the perfect career change and joined Severn Trent in 2020 as a HR apprentice.

“I was drawn to Severn Trent as not only are they a big local company, but they have great rewards and benefits and seemed to really look after and value their employees,” he said.

“My apprenticeship has given me loads of opportunities and I have done tonnes of development and have access to so much training and support. Not only that though, I have had the opportunity to become a mentor in the community, have volunteering days that I can choose how I use them.

“I have also been involved with Pride events and raising money for WaterAid. The different things to get involved with are endless, all while still working on my apprenticeship, earning a salary and getting heaps of valuable experience.

“I’d really encourage anyone who’s even just thinking about a change or looking to start their career, to explore what’s available as Severn Trent really is much more than just a water company.”
