There are more than 5,000 of us here at Anglian Water and over 3,000 alliance partners. All of us are passionate about putting water at the heart of a whole new way of living.

We each play a part in supplying water and water recycling services to almost seven million domestic customers in the East of England and Hartlepool. We borrow water from the environment, clean it to the highest standards, store it safely, deliver it to millions of homes, and carefully manage it to ensure it never runs out.

As a purpose-led company, we are redefining what a utility company can be. We work to bring environmental and social prosperity to the region we serve through our commitment to love every drop.

We play a leading and vital part in protecting the biodiversity of our region’s distinctive environment, with a special responsibility for the health not only of people, but of the environment where we all live and work.

We’re committed to supporting our communities too. We do that by working responsibly, managing our land for wildlife and recreation, and caring for our employees and their families.

We pride ourselves on everything we deliver, from great customer service, through to regulation and our alliances.  We’ve been named the UK’s Best Place to Work 2019 by Glassdoor, won Business in the Community’s Health and Wellbeing Award for 2019 and hold the RoSPA gold award for health and safety. We’re also proud holders of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Sustainable Development.

Supplying water to millions of people in the driest region in the country means we have to be innovative. We have to keep pushing the boundaries and approach challenges from different angles. That’s why we always embrace fresh perspectives.

Our apprenticeships vary in terms of duration, salaries and the qualifications you’ll gain – but they all give you the chance to get your career with us off to a flying start.

If it’s a graduate programme you’re interested in, these run for two years and are designed to give you the experiences you need to develop invaluable skills to become a manager and take your first steps in what we’re sure will be an incredibly fulfilling career with us.

By joining us, you’ll help us to raise awareness of the importance of water. And whether you’re collaborating with customers, your colleagues or our communities, you’ll play your own part in building a secure future for our region’s water.

Having a support network of other graduates and "graduate alumni" is fantastic as there is always someone to talk to and get advice as they will have faced a similar situation.

The assessment centre I attended was really relaxed. We arrived the night before so that we could all have dinner and few drinks together to get to know the other applicants (and assessors) in a more relaxed environment. The actual assessment day contained a number of activities including standard style interviews, group tasks and a presentation.

Application Advice:

Tailor your CV to when you’ve shown leadership/management skills because it is a management scheme.
Practice psychometric tests so you can get into the swing of them as they’re timed. You can do free ones online.
For telephone interviews, make sure you’ve got loads of examples of times when you’ve done things – eg. working in a team, leading a team, come up against conflict and how you dealt with it etc. I used to create mindmaps and blu tac them to my wall so I could quickly find examples in telephone interviews – good in case your mind goes blank.
If I could give any advice just be yourself at telephone interview and assessment centre. Also – do your research and find out what’s going on in the business as a whole as well as the specific role you are applying for. And ask your recruiters questions at the end of the interviews to find out more about the role and business.

Application Advice:

Assessment centre is really enjoyable compared to others I went to and designed to see you at your best.
The company seems to be looking for your potential as a manager and ability to work well with people rather than knowledge of the business.

Interview Advice:

Application consists of online submission of CV etc. and questions.
This is followed by online tests, in my case logic and numerical.
Telephone interview followed, looking at your experiences.
Assessment centre was an overnight experience. Online questionnaire must be completed before, which you are then interviewed on. Also 15 minute presentation and group exercise.

Try to have an awareness of your strengths and weaknesses as a person (with examples) and show how you've worked to improve.

Graduate Management Trainee, at Anglian Water
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

Try not to be intimidated by the application process.

Be honest about why you want to work for Anglian Water in your initial application.

The telephone interview is quite difficult because you can't see how the interviewee is reacting to what you're saying, but try to not get flustered by any of the questions. No one is trying to catch you out, they just want to know a little more about you.

Don't try to predict the outcome of any of the stages in the application, as it's impossible to know and will only cause unnecessary worry. (I thought I failed the non-verbal reasoning test!)

Interview Advice:

The only face-to-face interviews you have are on the assessment day. This is good because the meet up and meal on the evening before really helps you to relax and feel comfortable with the people who will be interviewing you. The interviewers / assessors may act quite differently in the assessments than they did at the meal, but this is only because they have a job to do. Don't let it throw you!

Be completely honest on the OPQ and use it as an opportunity to self-evaluate your own strengths and weaknesses.

Prepare for the assessment day (e.g. learn a bit about the business and think about why you really want the job), but don't try to over-prepare. The tasks really require you to be flexible, not scripted. It's very cliche, but try to be yourself!

There will be graduates from the previous intake at the assessment centre. Ask them questions (although they won't be able to give specifics about the tasks/interviews).

Most importantly, the assessment day allows you the opportunity to learn more about Anglian Water, the people who work there and the company culture. I came away from it knowing that I really, really wanted the job. So just enjoy it!

Application Advice:

Try and share your enthusiasm, although this is sometimes hard to get over on a written application. It is also important to show you have people skills, as well as knowledge.

Interview Advice:

Ask all the questions you are thinking as someone else in the room probably wants to know the answer too and there is no such thing as a silly question.

Application Advice:

I believe Anglian Water look for candidates with personality who are eager to learn. I would advise showing your personality throughout the application process and reseaching to understand the company values.

Interview Advice:

Again show your personality throughout the interview, asking questions to further your understanding of the role and business. Don't be defeated if an activity in the applicant day doesn't go how you would like it to as you are likely to make up for it in other activities.

Application Advice:

Really give it your all in the application, but don't waffle - the employers at AW can see right through waffle and like specific, to the point, but elaborate points to your applications, dont forget to save some detail for assessment centre further elaboration!

As much as the questions and answers are important content wise, they are also looking hugely at your natural attitude, behaviour. Its not just a company about answering questions correctly, equally its how well you'll fit in with our culture here

Application Advice:

Who you are is equally as important as how much you know. Anglain Water recruitment focuses heavily on how well you as an idividual will fit in to the business.

Interview Advice:

It is a relatively relaxed interview process which will hopefully reduce stress and show the real you. Again, there is significant emphasis on who you are and how you behave.

Graduate Management Trainee, Regulation at Anglian Water

Application Advice:

Do your research on the industry and figure out why you want to work for a water company. Have a look at what other water companies are doing and think about why you want to work for Anglian Water in particular. Be honest in your application! If you mention an experience you've had, expect to expand upon this in detail at later stages in the process.

Interview Advice:

Try and relax. This can seem really hard to do, but more than anything if you have made it to this stage, the interviewers are looking for someone they can see fitting in with the company culture. When answering questions, talk about a related experience you might have had and tell the interviewer what the outcome was. The STAR technique is really useful - Situation, Task, Action, Result.

Application Advice:

Use your university's careers service as much as possible - get your CV up to date and eye catching to employers.
Practice online verbal and numerical reasoning tests - helps when you come to do them for real during the application process as some can catch you off guard.
Create mind maps with examples of different situations you have had to deal with from past experience - blue tac them on to your bedroom wall - really helps during telephone interviews to quickly access "times you've done x"

Thoroughly research Anglian Water - more generally who they are, what they do, what are their key motivators and more specifically to the position you are applying for.
Know as much as possible about the company but also make sure to have examples of past scenarios which you can draw on when questioned.

Be enthusiatic and go in with an open mind.
Do your research on the company and show passion through your application

Interview Advice:

Don't go in thinking you know it all, show enthuasiasm and ask questions. The interview process is as much about getting to know if the company is right for you as it is about the company assessing you. The interview process consisted of an application, a telephone interview and then an assesment centre. The assessment centre is a great chance to meet previous graduates, and ask questions about the scheme. Be yourself and honest in interviews and try to give examples in your answers as much as possible.

Best:

Commitment to it's employees; The CEO has created a working environment that allows employees to be more flexible with how they work, i.e. working from home, working 8-4 instead of 9-5, providing a friendly and helpful atmosphere to new employees, mental health and wellbeing programmes, employee benefits, healthcare scheme and virtual doctor scheme,

Worst:

Some processes are done in an illogical and sometimes ineffective manner, because they have always been done that way. While and effort is being made to re-evaluate these, it takes considerable time and effort to change the culture of people who have been working this way at this company for 15+ years, as such trying to do things in a new way can come with considerable resistance.
