Severn Trent

Graduates provide a crucial role in the development of our business. We need people who, with their curiosity, enthusiasm and fresh ideas, will form the future of Severn Trent.  We call this FLUID THINKING.

The water industry is facing huge challenges and we are facing these head on - by 2020 we want to become the most trusted water company in the UK. With your help and fluid thinking we believe that this is possible with future leaders like you. Severn Trent PLC supplies our customers with around two billion litres of drinking water every day. That’s no mean feat when you realise that that quantity alone would fill a thousand Olympic sized swimming pools-  and we do the same tomorrow too.

We’re a FTSE 100 company that’s fast paced, employing over five thousand people from the Midlands through to Mid-Wales and the Humber. Our eight million customers rely on us for their water, 24/7 365 days a year – no exceptions or excuses.
