Thames Water

Customer Service Graduate, Customer Service at Thames Water

Application Advice: Don't rush your application, make sure you are answering the questions specifically. I think it is important to be explicit about what you have done and achieved, make sure someone doesn't have to read between the lines. Thames Water care about you as a person, it will not be enough to simply say what you have achieved in the professional world, be creative, use examples that others may not have and remember...sell yourself, if you don't sell yourself here you may never get the chance to do it in person.

Interview Advice: Do your research, don't leave it to chance. You may not be asked every single detail but being in the position where you are comfortable to be asked anything is great. The interview process is rigid so make sure you know why you want to work for Thames Water, they are spending a lot of time and money firstly on recruitment and then developing you, make sure you are making the right decision as well.
