SEVERN Trent, has announced it’s recruiting 80 brand new apprentices this year – the largest number the company has recruited to date.
With places available across the whole business, in various engineering, customer relations and digital roles, the company is keen to recruit apprentices who are thirsty for knowledge of Severn Trent and want a chance to make a splash with a career in the water industry.
Amy Barber, new talent and development manager at Severn Trent, said: “We’re offering up to 80 places this year, which is the most we’ve ever taken on.
“And this year we’re offering some of those places at degree level, as well as advanced and higher level apprenticeships. With the water industry changing so much over the next few years, it really is an exciting time to join the company. The development scheme offers a chance for people either entering the world of work or looking for a new career path to learn, while earning at the same time.”
Last year the company recruited 28 new apprentices and Amy added: “Not only are we offering up to 52 extra places this year, we’ve also given our apprentice scheme a boost – our new joiners will have visibility across the business – right from the start.
“Working across our region with experts, other apprentices and graduates, adapting quickly to the pace and scale of what we do – they’ll have the chance to make an impact. We hope in years to come, our apprentices will become experts in their field and have the scale of knowledge to become leaders of the future.”
