Yorkshire Water is offering 160 apprentices over the next five years in the biggest scheme of its kind ever launched by the company.

The majority of the new positions will be in operational roles as the firm looks to recruit the next generation of skilled staff.

Richard Flint, Yorkshire Water’s Chief Executive Officer, said: “Many people may not be aware just what a diverse range of skills we have within the company – from qualified engineers to geologists to our talented operators.

“In fact, we have some of the most skilled colleagues that you’ll find in any industry and it’s so important to us as a business that we look to preserve this specialist knowledge for the future.

“That’s why we are delighted to announce these 160 apprenticeships, it’s great news for young people and for the Yorkshire economy. Ours is a company that invests in its people and, having joined as a graduate myself, I know there are endless opportunities to progress and develop here.”

Yorkshire Water has recruited 59 apprentices over the past five years.
