Running alongside this year’s National Apprenticeship Week (4 -8 March), Severn Trent’s 2019 apprenticeship scheme is now open for applications, with the company inviting the next generation of engineers and leaders to join the FTSE 100 water and waste business.

“We’re proud to be able to offer a really diverse range of options this year. As well as the more traditional engineering programmes which you’d expect from us, we’re also offering apprenticeships in areas such as finance and law, meaning there really is something for everyone.”

The company is offering apprenticeship programmes in: 

• Tanker Driving;

• Utilities Engineering;

• Engineering; 

• Project Management; 

• Quantity Surveying; 

• Finance; and

• Law.

Successful applicants spend time learning and developing with the company, supported by their line manager and mentor, to achieve nationally recognised qualifications in their specialist area.

Severn Trent’s award-winning apprentices have won gold at the Industry World Skills competition, competed in the nationwide Brathay apprentice challenge, and also had one of their own named apprentice of the year.

“The scheme’s always incredibly popular so we’d urge anyone who’s interested to get their application in,” continues Mark. “I’m sure all of our new apprentices will go on to do great things at Severn Trent, whatever path they might choose, which also means they’ll be ensuring our customers get the best experience possible, while working in an ever-evolving industry.”
