Technical Leadership: Finance

What you’ll be doing

This programme consists of four nine month placements where you’ll explore all of our financial functions: Business Information, Planning & Performance, the Financial Services Centre, and our Group Technical Areas. At the same time, you’ll study for your professional accounting certification(ACCA or CIMA). You’ll also take on what we call ‘business-as-usual’ roles that are integral to our business, rather than ones that have been created specifically for graduates.  This is Fluid Thinking in the numbers.  

We need creative thinkers to ensure that we respond to massive industry transformation, now and in the future. To help you do this you’ll receive our world-class, business-wide development training, backed by external accountancy courses delivered by professional bodies like BPP or Kaplan. You’ll also receive on-the-job training delivered by your line manager, that is shaped to your specific needs and interests.

Where we’ll take you

We’re a business with an ambitious vision: to become the UK’s leading water company.  To achieve it we’re focusing on developing fluid thinking, new talent within our business.  Everything you learn and experience here will be focused on growing your skills as far and as fast as possible.  

Our placements focus on giving you on-the-job experience in actual business roles from the outset.  At the same time you’ll receive the internal and external training and time to study you need to be come a qualified accountant.  If you want to develop expert technical knowledge as well as a thorough understanding of business strategy, we can help you put the two together in business-critical scenarios.

What we’re looking for

With new markets opening up, a shifting climate and increasing urbanisation, the pace of change in the water industry is increasing rapidly – we’re looking for people who can be proactive, think fluid and help us keep up with the current. You’ll need to be:

  • Working towards a degree, in any discipline
  • Comfortable communicating with non-finance professionals and telling stories through numbers
  • Able to digest information and use it to make effective business decisions
  • Curious and analytical with a passion for finance
