What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


Variance and Opportunities -
I am not one for the standard 9-5 behind an office desk all week. Fortunately, I have not had that experience as every week is different to the last, working in the different locations, with different people. There is an array of training available and you are openly encouraged to get involved with other areas of the business on for example experience days and external opportunities such as working on charity schemes.


I cannot think of any negatives in my current job role.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £25,000 - £27,000

Current salary: £25,000 - £27,000

What hours do you actually work, on average?

Start: 08:45

Finish: 16:45

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

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.

Do you have any interview tips?

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.
