Severn Trent apprentice and graduate scheme: New year, New Talent

Applications to join Severn Trent's New Talent schemes have opened as planned.

The company isn't letting the current lockdown get in the way of its ongoing commitment to build the skills of the next generation.

Offering its most diverse range of schemes to date, Severn Trent is looking for its next cohort of technical experts and leaders to apply to its apprentice, graduate and undergraduate schemes across a variety of business areas and critical roles.

Jade Pearson, New Talent manager at Severn Trent, said: "We're really fortunate that despite the ongoing pandemic and the position we still find ourselves in, we've been able to offer some amazing opportunities for people to join us across a range of wonderful and exciting programmes.

"We know that others are in a different position than ourselves, so we feel very lucky that we're still able to create these roles, and help support our communities by offering such a diverse range of opportunities for people."

The New Talent programmes have created over 70 new positions in the company, including apprenticeship schemes in marketing and communications, agriculture, health and safety, project management, accountancy, technical operations and HR.

The company is also offering graduate placements in finance, business leadership and digital engineering, with undergraduate placements on offer across its visitor sites.

To help bring its programmes to life, the New Talent teams have been hosting and running online events, speaking with potential candidates who can hear first-hand from current apprentices and graduates about life at Severn Trent, with senior leaders sharing their own career stories. Through these events, 1,000 people have registered an interest in one of the many programmes.

Jade said: "By bringing new talent into our company, we're excited to welcome people from all walks of life and backgrounds, to really help improve what we do best, which is delivering for and looking after our customers.

"We were able to celebrate a great number of our new talent trainees completing their programmes last year despite the pandemic kicking off, and we're delighted that our newest apprentices and graduates have now settled into their new careers with us. We really want people to take the time to check out what we have, and with such a vast set of diverse programmes, there really is something for everyone."
