Severn Trent - graduate to expert

Business Leadership Programme

What you’ll be doing

The Business Leadership Programme consists of three nine-month placements. In this time, you’ll work side-by-side with teams, leaders and technical experts in very diverse areas of Severn Trent. You can expect to be collaborating with frontline operations to train staff, producing and delivering tenders for new business, or signing off detailed technical designs for our networks.  This is Fluid Thinking in practice.  You’ll stretch your knowledge, enhance your skills and become an all-round expert in everything that makes our business flow.  

As you will be working on the frontline of our business we are there, with a firm foundation, to support you. You’ll receive rigorous training and a line manager who will tailor your development to your specific needs and interests.

Where we’ll take you

At the end of your programme you’ll have the key tools and understanding you need to take on a Business Leadership role at Severn Trent.  In some instances, our Graduates will step into one of these positions immediately.  In most cases they’ll take on a substantive position in a department of their choice before making that transition.  Whichever route you end up taking, we’ll continue to support you, explaining your options and helping you to pick one that suits your objectives.

  • A degree in any discipline with any grade qualification
  • New ideas and challenging perspectives
  • Proactivity, curiosity and a drive to learn
  • The ability to deal with and adjust to change
