Think of water and you probably think of us: Severn Trent is one of the largest regulated water companies in England. In Wales, our customers are looked after by Hafren Dyfrdwy, our new company which symbolises the teaming up of Dee Valley Water and Severn Trent and will bring wonderful water to mid and north-east Wales. The partnership combines a community approach with the perks of being a wider public company. Together, we provide our customers with clean, safe water and remove and treat waste water in responsible, sustainable ways.

By 2020, we want to be the most trusted water company. That’s why we’re transforming service in the water industry, driving growth, and coming up with new ideas every day to shape the future for everyone and keep water flowing. Our goal is to always listen to the customer and provide the value service, whilst showing that we are a lead example of environmental leadership.

Managing water is a challenge but we are dedicated to making sure it doesn’t have an adverse effect on our ecosystem. We take steps to preserve wildlife and their habitats, as well as working with partner organisations such as the Environment Agency, to help support our regions water sources and biodiversity.

Ultimately, we manage all aspects of water to make sure it benefits everyone and is used in the best possible way.

Application Advice:

Application consists of three parts:
- A set of questions related to the Water Industry and Severn Trent > Research these areas, they will help in assessment centre too.
- Psychometric tests > Standard tests.
- Telephone interview > Times are booked up rapidly so make sure you book early. If times available do not suit email the careers officer in time to find a more suitable time.

Interview Advice:

Assessment Centre is a full day made up of three parts:
- Solo Interview > Questions relate to your experience and background, Water Industry, Severn Trent and some technical engineering questions.
- Case Study Appraisal and Presentation > Given scenario in which you are asked to decide which of the following set of business options should the company pursue. Must then present your views and findings to one of the panellists.
- Group Assessment > Assessment has changed since I did it, but they are interested in your ability to work together as a team rather than the overall success of the task.

During the day you are being assessed by a group of panellists made up of current employees from all over the company, including some new graduates. Great opportunity to find out more about the company and find out a bit of the company culture. Everyone was very friendly and made us feel welcome.

Interview Advice:

The interview/selection process is formed of a group exercise, an individual exercise, a presentation and then an interview where you are asked questions on your presentation and your reasons for wanting to join the scheme. I would recommend plenty of research not just into Severn Trent but the UK water industry as a whole and be aware of the political climate surrounding UK utilities companies. As the process is strengths-based, be yourself so that the recruitment team on the day can see the real you and look to take the lead and influence others in the group assessment. Most of all, enjoy the day!

Working Culture -
Great company culture, everybody does the job because they want to. With that comes a great learning environment in which people want to help you and teach you how to do your work should you need assistance.

Worst:

Regional -
As with all the utility companies, Severn Trent is regionalised and so work is only available in their location. The company has also sold its international portfolio and therefore there is no longer opportunities to work abroad. However, whilst such a proposal is a major attraction from a student perspective you realise after a couple of years of working that such a factor is minor. If you do want to work abroad in the future it is relatively easy to get a few years experience and then go it alone - especially in Engineering.

-There are lots of opportunities beyond your role - whether this be doing voluntary work in other departments or conducting a day in the life of style placement.
- Work life balance and flexible working hours.
