Severn Trent in recruitment drive for 250 staff
Severn Trent is set to recruit a further 250 people as it seeks to boost its frontline service to customers.
The new staff will be in the utility’s asset creation and repair and maintenance teams, and the recruitment represents a significant commitment by Severn Trent, which already employs almost 6,000 people.
Liv Garfield, Severn Trent Chief Executive, said: “We know how important it is for our customers to have a shower in the morning and to wake up with a freshly brewed cuppa, and our teams work hard every hour of every day to make that happen.
“They’re doing a cracking job working hard to keep everything working perfectly but we need even more people on board to make our service even better for our customers.
“So, alongside the teams who work to keep our network working perfectly, we also need people who can change our pipes, create a new connection or carry out major work to improve and update our network.
“Our teams are absolutely brilliant and this is a great chance to join an awesome company, while also making a real difference to millions of people.”
The job roles Severn Trent will be looking to fill include repair and maintenance technician, technical administrator and network support.
The company serves 4.5 million customers across the Midlands, and north and mid-Wales.
