About Severn Trent

At Severn Trent, we bring clean water to over eight million people, every day. Together, we’re delivering and caring for the world’s most precious resource.

We’re a fluid organisation – the challenges we face are always changing, and we’re changing to meet them. From harnessing the power of digital technology to finding safer, more efficient ways to save water, we’re building a network that’s ready for the 21st century. As an Apprentice, you’ll be at the heart of that transformation.

Utilities Operational Technician

Be part of a vital changing industry

As an Operational Apprentice, you’ll learn about our complex and evolving water network, getting to grips with the systems and machinery that keep our business – and our communities – flowing.

From raindrops to reservoirs, plants to pipelines

We’ve got lots of different schemes that cover every aspect of our business, whether it’s keeping our supply clean or our grid connected.

Utilities Ops Technician – Treatment

You’ll carry out essential treatment works, including chemical dosing, filtration and disinfection, and discover the science behind creating a safe water supply.  

Utilities Ops Technician – Network

You’ll develop an in-depth understanding of our network and the equipment that holds it together, analysing its structure and finding innovative ways to improve performance.

Utilities Ops Technician – Leakage

You’ll learn all about hydraulics theory and use it to test, alter and set-up meter areas, helping us to become a more efficient and environmentally-friendly business.

Utilities Ops Technician – Sewerage Network

You’ll get under the surface of our operations, doing hands-on work in confined spaces, inspecting underground systems and keeping them properly maintained.

Utilities Ops Technician – Waste Water Treatment

You’ll make sure thousands of people, every day, have access to clean water, carrying out vital processes including screening, settlement and biological treatment.

A world of water to explore

Starting with an intensive residential period, during which you’ll learn about the science, techniques and methods we use to operate our network, this apprenticeship is designed to get you tackling technical projects as soon as possible. Once you’re on-the-job, you’ll rotate between different schemes, developing wide-ranging expertise, putting your skills to use in new ways and gaining nationally recognised qualifications. This 2 year Advanced Apprenticeship is A-level standard. You’ll also have the opportunity to gain a range of NVQ Level 3 qualifications.

What we’re looking for

  • At least 5 GCSEs at grade C or above (or equivalent), including Maths, English and ideally a Science subject
  • Willingness to get your full UK driving licence (if you don’t already have it)
  • Ability to get to work and college independently – not all our sites are on public transport routes
  • The full right to live and work in the UK (without restrictions)
