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 Engineering Technician
As an Apprentice you’ll be part of projects that will stretch you and grow your engineering skills whilst working with one of our key clients, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) or The Coal Authority.
What you'll be doing
Having completed an intensive residential period of on-the-job training, where you’ll have gained a high level of technical knowledge to support your transition into operational placements, you’ll have the opportunity to start putting your skills to use. Our Utilities Engineering Technicians perform vital maintenance on equipment to ensure our sites and systems run efficiently and safely, as well as supporting other disciplines.
Within Severn Trent Services there are two main roles: Electrical or Mechanical Technicians, which can (where business need requires) be trained to work with wider responsibilities and multiple skills. Examples of some activities are:
Utilities Engineering Technician – Mechanical
You’ll get to grips with core mechanical theory and principles, applying them to a range of complex systems, carrying out essential repairs, and keeping us and our communities connected.
Utilities Engineering Technician – Electrical
You’ll find out about the intricate electrical networks that make our business flow. Installing, inspecting and maintaining them, you’ll ensure that our customers have a safe and reliable water supply.
How we'll support you
Induction event - A two-week induction designed to introduce you to our business, show you how we work and help you get the best.
An Apprentice buddy - Someone to share your experiences with and support you in achieving your ambitions.
Regular performance reviews with your manager - Bi-annual reviews to help you outline clearly-defined goals and measure how you’re developing against them.
National Qualifications - We’ll also help you to pursue nationally recognised qualifications, such as NVQs.
Training and Development
In order to complete your apprenticeship training you will be required to study at our Birmingham (West Midlands) learning provider throughout your first year and at various points through your apprenticeship. There will be residential support available from Severn Trent during this training period and you will be based at either Catterick or Seaham as your base site for your onsite experiences.
Your site based activities will allow you to develop the skills and experience that you’ll require to become an expert here, either through working in operational teams or on technical projects. During this time, you’ll combine on-the-job learning with formal, nationally recognised development training modules and have the opportunity to gain a range of NVQ Level 3 Qualifications.
To help you drive and own your career progression, we’ll provide you with Personal Development Plan. This will be set and agreed with your line manager and reviewed regularly to inform your bi-annual performance reviews.
What we're looking for
You must have the right to work in the UK and due to the nature of these roles you will be required to complete additional security clearances as part of our processes.
Locations: Catterick (North Yorkshire) or Seaham (County Durham)
