Let's Cut Straight To it

Want to do the best work of your life? Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve. Our people make Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.

Where could I end up?

Find out how Rose went from being a Physics and Astrophysics student, to deciding a PhD wasn't for her, to becoming a Severn Trent Graduate! To watch the full Gradcracker/Severn Trent webinar, click here.

Our purpose is taking care of life’s essentials, but we’re also big on making a difference, not just because we should but because we care.  

Let's Tell You More

On the Technology Graduate Programme you’ll spend time in three different areas of our Technology team, where you’ll get to learn how to;

  • Detect and mitigate cyber security threats
  • Effectively manage cyber security incidents, including developing and testing incident response plans
  • Create and implement cyber security standards, policies, and processes

As well as working on your own personal development, you’ll make a real lasting difference to our customers and communities, not just for now, but far into the future.

You’ll be supported every step of the way, by your line manager and mentor.

  • Location: Coventry
  • Programme Duration: 24 months (2 x 12 month placements)
  • Starting Salary: £29,056
  • Typical off-scheme role: At the end of the programme you’ll move into a Cyber Security technical expert role. 
  • Entry Criteria: This programme is designed for individuals who have completed a degree, ideally in a Cyber or Computer Science based subject. 

What We're Looking For

Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity and a caring attitude in equal weight.  

We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up. Restless spirits who are ready to be part of something bigger, who care, who really care... because when you really care, you’ll go above and beyond. When you really care you don’t just talk about it, you do more.  

We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do.  

And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.  
We do more, because we care.  

How We'll Reward And Care For You In Return 

It’s not just a job you’ll get here, you’ll get a career too. We have a range of benefits that reward and recognise great work and award-winning training to ensure you reach your potential. And we’ll also help you play your part in looking after the environment and the community in which we live.  

Here’s some of our favourites:  

  • 28 days' holiday + bank holidays (and the ability to buy/ sell up to 5 days per year)  
  • Annual bonus scheme (of up to £1,500 per annum based on company performance)
  • Leading pension scheme – we will double your contribution (up to 15% when you contribute 7.5%)  
  • Sharesave – the chance to buy Severn Trent Plc shares at a discounted rate  
  • Dedicated training and development with our ‘Academy’  
  • Electric vehicle scheme and retail offers  
  • Family friendly policies  
  • Two volunteering days per year  

 As if that isn’t enough, you’ll receive an annual salary increase whilst your on programme and you’ll also get an increase when you move into your first job.
