What to expect
Being a graduate Process Scientist/Engineer is an exciting opportunity if you are looking to pursue a career in Water Industry. During the two year graduate programme you will be based with the Operational Scientific teams, in either water or wastewater, and while you’ll have a great deal of responsibility from day one, we’ll give you the chance to take on more as you progress and develop your skills and understanding alongside our Process Scientists.
The work with the Operational teams will provide you with a solid foundation of the Process Science work activities. You’ll be working on all types and sizes of Water or Wastewater Assets that are employed across our operational area, you’ll also gain a broad understanding of Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, and will meet lots of new colleagues along the way.
Following the two year graduate programme, you will be part of the Welsh Water Capital Delivery team and have the opportunity to undertake large investment projects collaboratively with other members of the team and best in class Construction Partners. You will also have experience of overseeing Water and Wastewater improvement projects yourself, through feasibility, design construction and commissioning with support from the wider Capital Delivery Team.
The Capital Delivery Team have delivered a number of important projects recent years. Some examples include:
- Rainscape schemes in West Wales (£40m)
- North Wales Sludge Strategy (£58m)
- Bryncowlyd water treatment works (£35m)
A typical capital delivery project will involve liaising with operational stakeholders, communicating delivery strategies and identifying appropriate technical solutions. Important skills for a Process Scientist will include problem solving, analysing process data and assist with the development and implementation of capital schemes.
What we need
In order to apply, you will need:
- Minimum 2:1 degree in Chemical Engineering, Biology, Chemistry or alternative scientific discipline
- Membership of a relevant Professional body and willing to work towards Chartership
- Eligible to work and live permanently in the UK
- Be available to start with us 7 September 2020
In addition to this, you’ll be passionate about water or wastewater treatment, will be hard-working with a good attitude towards problem solving, and will contribute positively to the Capital Delivery Team, making a real difference by nurturing our treatment processes that bring benefit to the organisation, and to our customers.
