For the best apprenticeship, just add water! As an apprentice at Scottish Water you’ll be joining one of Scotland’s most critical businesses and be part of the team who deliver essential water and waste water services to the people of Scotland. We’re passionate about developing our people and we’ll help you make the most of your skills and abilities with first-class training, support, hands-on work experience and a huge investment in your development. You’ll have the chance to challenge and stretch yourself and build opportunities for your future as your career grows and develops. We’re a team that respects and values peoples’ differences, where you can be yourself - and where you can flourish. As part of our commitment to talent development we are now accepting applications for our 2019 Apprentice Programme which commences in August 2019 for you to join as a Water Treatment Modern Apprentice covering the wider area of Forth Valley / West Perthshire.
What will you be doing? During this 4 year programme, you’ll be learning everything you need to know about how we treat water to ensure that we provide our customers with high quality and safe drinking water, protecting public health and the environment in the process. That means most of your days will be spent outdoors, on our operational sites - working as part of an expert and experienced team who will support you to develop your skills and knowledge and achieve a nationally recognised qualification. This is your chance to learn as you earn, working with industry-leading teams to help deliver services that are essential to the daily lives of the people of Scotland. Who are we looking for? We’re looking for people who are self-motivated, team players who enjoy being outdoors. You should be practical, well organised and a good problem solver with a positive attitude and the ability to work on your own initiative. You’ll have five National 4 or 5 Qualifications (English, Maths and Science are advantageous but not essential) and a full UK driving licence (or currently be working to achieve this) as you’ll typically be working across a number of our sites.
