We're United Utilities, the North West's water company.
From Crewe to Carlisle, we keep the taps flowing and the toilets flushing for 3 million homes and 200,000 businesses across the region.
Being good enough isn't our way of doing things. We want to provide the best water and wastewater services in the UK and be absolutely genuine in the help and support we offer our customers.
Our purpose is to provide great service to customers and communities in the North West, creating long-term value for all our stakeholders.
We have been awarded with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognising the Best Places to Work in 2020. We were ranked #19 company in the UK, based solely on the input of employees, who provide feedback on their jobs, work environments and companies on Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites.
Our internship programmes will give you the opportunity to learn first-hand how we make this happen. Our undergraduate and graduate programmes are key to helping us support customers.
The role will cover Natural Capital Strategy and Planning within our Environment, Planning, and innovation directorate.
Under the supervision of your line manager, the successful candidate will get the opportunity to take responsibility for specific projects, initiatives, and reports, supporting in developing our Catchment Systems Thinking (CaST) approach and our wider Natural Capital activities. This will give the successful candidate a real flavour of the business.
We're looking for an enthusiastic undergraduate to lead the way and help us to meet the challenges of the future.
You'll receive a structured 3-month placement programme which will cover a variety of areas within Environment Planning and Innovation department.
Don't worry, you won't be going it alone. Mentors and managers will work with you as you progress through your placement and support you as you work towards your personal development goals.
If you want to join an FTSE 100 company, that wants to disrupt the water industry and you want to make a positive change in the world we would like to hear from you.
We celebrate and support diversity and are committed to ensuring equal opportunities for both employees and applicants.
When you join our intern scheme, you'll receive a good salary, and you'll also be eligible for a bonus of up to 7.5%.
You get 6.5 days of holiday to take during your placement, and at our fantastic Lingley Mere site we have an onsite gym, coffee shops and other great facilities. And while access to an award-winning pension scheme might not be top of your priorities right now, responsible employers like us make sure you get one anyway – you'll pay 5% into your pot and you'll get an extra 10% from the company. And that's not the only way to save, as you'll be able to buy company shares as part of the employee share buy scheme.
