Help keep water flowing

Gradcracker Summary:

An insightful conversation covering all aspects of a student or graduate’s journey at Severn Trent – from the application process, right through to gaining Chartership in the water industry.

We were impressed by the balance between structured and self-directed training, and the opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience through things like operational rigs and virtual reality.

We also asked graduates why they chose a career at Severn Trent; their reasons included the company’s commitment to the environment, and the fact that there will always be a demand for water. Watch this webinar to find out how you can develop specialist skills in a vital industry.  

Here’s one of the many kind comments we received…

"It was brilliant to hear details of the Severn Trent worlds which our students and graduates are part of, and the experiences they've had. Thank you for inviting Severn Trent to be part of your Webinar series. We hope the information has been well received by the audience." – Darren Page, Graduate Resourcing Manager
