Thames Water

We’re the UK’s biggest water company with nine million customers relying on us every day to provide them with drinking water and waste services. We also clean and treat the wastewater of a further six million customers before returning it to the natural environment. This is a huge responsibility and meets the needs of almost a quarter of the UK’s population. 

We’re also at the forefront of innovation in our industry – we’ve just completed construction of the deepest tunnel in London and every day we create enough renewable energy to power a city the size of Oxford.

We are protectors of the natural environment and our biodiversity team manage nature reserves and habitats across London and the Thames Valley. We also used recycled wastewater for irrigation and toilets across the Olympic Park, helping to make London 2012 the greenest Games ever.

Alongside the innovations and improvements we make, we never lose sight of our customers. We provide one of life’s essentials and all our work goes to providing a top class service for our customers, while ensuring our bills are affordable.

As a graduate you will have a range of opportunities to get involved in everything we do, including helping us raise £500,000 each year for charity. You can make a big impact with us, not just for our customers but for those around the world who are really in need. We’re constantly striving to do things better for our customers, our people and the environment. Join us on this journey and enjoy a real sense of satisfaction as you work with dedicated people who tirelessly deliver an outstanding service that’s at the heart of daily life. We offer challenging, stimulating and rewarding opportunities across an incredible variety of disciplines and locations.

We’re committed to creating the future leaders of Thames Water. With us you’ll get the opportunity to gain real management experience and professional qualifications in a company where you can personally make a difference.

Your initial 18 months with us will help develop your leadership skills and style to make sure you are the best people manager you can be. You’ll be placed into a real business role, in some cases leading a team of up to 15 or managing a project across our company.

We expect that within five years you’ll be managing a much larger team and be part of our future succession plans. There is a world of opportunities with us and we’re here to help and guide you, but the direction you take will be set by you.

We’re looking for graduates who want to take their progression into their own hands. Being self-sufficient and managing your own development is a key factor to success. Our previous graduates have taken all

the programme has to offer and then gone out on their own to gain even more experience.

It’s this kind of initiative that will get you ahead!
