Imagine making every drop of water count for over six million customers – from the Humber in the North to the Thames in the South; and from Daventry in the West to Lowestoft in the East. Imagine an incredibly complex and amazingly innovative company that’s shaping the future of a whole industry. That’s the reality of working with the team at Anglian Water. They’re in the business of ‘loving every drop’. That means making sure that 1.1 billion litres of clean and safe drinking water is delivered to homes and businesses, everyday using enough pipeline to wrap around the world three times! And the story doesn’t stop there: their Water Recycling Service teams work hard to collect and treat used water from 2.44 million households. So they really are a company for all types of skills, built on people from many different backgrounds.
Anglian Water believe ex-Service men and women have an important role to play in the region’s workplaces.
The skills soldiers, sailors and airmen have are vital when it comes to the great engineering challenge of maintaining and improving the vast network of pipes, sewers, pumping stations and treatment works and that’s why Anglian Water Chief Executive Peter Simpson signed a pledge back in March 2015 to welcome former military personnel and reservists into the company’s workforce.
The commitment and signing of the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant came after an inspirational day at the Invictus Games where Prince Harry and Prince William spoke about the challenge for some ex-Service men and women entering the world of work.
Anglian Water is one of the biggest employers in the east of England. There are also several military bases on their patch and the company feels it has a real responsibility to do all they can to support their Service personnel.
In the past year alone, more than 40 former Service men and women have joined Anglian Water in a variety of roles including customer service advisors, plant and network engineers, renewable energy managers, and tanker drivers. All jobs in the company are now advertised through the MoD’s Career Transition Partnership (CTP) and Anglian Water regularly attends the CTP’s employment fairs throughout the region.
As a part of its commitment under the Armed Forces Covenant, Anglian Water is working with the Recovery Career Services to help those who have been medically discharged from the armed forces to identify suitable roles in the business for disabled veterans.
