Job Purpose

As a water network apprentice you'll be looking after our customers and the pipes that send water to homes and businesses across the North West. It'll be your job to make sure our customers have a brews and showers every day. 

Be part of the flow of life

At United Utilities we're proud to be essential every day, and our people are essential too.

Come and join us on our apprenticeship scheme and you'll be given the training and development to take that first step onto the career ladder, supported by the United Utilities family.

A bit more about the role

Our water network team is responsible for operation and maintenance of all our mains, pumping stations and service reservoirs and resolving issues on our water network so that all our customers have high quality water at all times of the day and night.

Whilst on your three year water network apprenticeship scheme no two days will ever be the same as you learn to operate and look after all of the kit we use to deliver water to homes and businesses across the North West.

For the first two years of your apprenticeship you'll spend your time learning about all aspects of the Water Network whilst undertaking the role with experienced  colleagues.  After this time, you'll be assigned to a specific water network role, enabling you to become an expert in your chosen field.

Successful apprentices will achieve a Water process Technician Standard which is endorsed by the Energy Utilities, Independent Assessment Service.

During your apprenticeship you'll learn:

  • How to resolve customer queries
  • How we respond to water supply complaints
  • How you can support the business during incidents and events
  • How to look after all of our pipes, mains and pumping stations

What we're looking for

We're looking for someone who's keen to gain hands on experience, develop practical skills and achieve the standards needed to really succeed in your role.

You'll have a dedicated mentor and manager who'll be on hand to support you every step of the way. All that we ask from you is that you're willing to learn, know how to work as part of a team and can manage your time and workload to get things done.

You'll also need to have 5 GCSEs or equivalent, grades A-C or grades 9-4, which must include Maths, English and a science or technology subject.

What you'll get from us

  • Rewarding essentials – there's lot of perks to the job, including a starting salary of £12,500 which will increase each year based on performance
  • Be the best you can be – you'll get involved in all sorts of training and fun activities with your fellow apprentices
  • An environment to be proud of – we're a responsible employer committed to developing our young talent in state of the art facilities 
  • Be part of the family – you'll have the chance to network, bond and learn from your colleagues and fellow apprentices

Additional information

During your first year, you'll spend one working week out of every month at our technical training centre in Bolton. If you're from outside of the area, accommodation will be provided for this period, excluding weekends.

Once you've completed your apprenticeship and moved into a permanent role there may be a requirement to join part of a formal standby rota, which may require you to do some out of hours work. Don't worry, your training will prepare you for this, but we do advise that you apply for a vacancy that's relatively easy for you to get to, as we would need you to travel to the site quickly during standby.
