WATER & UTILITIES JOBS
Every day in the UK, more than 50 million household and non-household consumers expect high quality water and wastewater services. However, with the demands of an ever growing population and an ongoing need to replace and upgrade aged infrastructure, the water industry is investing heavily to ensure services meet this demand. To illustrate this, ‘AMP6’ will see a further £44bn invested. Furthermore, increasing flood events across the UK are requiring re-doubled efforts from the industry to bolster the UK’s flood defences.
In addition to the investments planned across the country, 2016 sees the start of the “biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by the UK water industry”. The 25km £4.1bn Thames Tideway Tunnel is designed to relieve the pressure on London’s Victorian sewerage system, preventing the release of tens of millions of tonnes worth of untreated sewage into the River Thames every year.
This nationwide investment brings a heavy reliance on the availability of skills throughout the supply chain and brings exciting and rewarding opportunities for individuals at all levels. Advance specialises in marrying together demand and opportunity, working with companies to solve their resource challenges and with water professionals to identify suitable permanent or contract employment opportunities.
