To continue with our growth plans for 2019 and beyond we are searching for Graduate Engineers (site based) to join our Professional Development Programme for our autumn 2019 intake. We have an opportunity to work within the @One Alliance on projects within the East Anglian region. In most cases you will start your journey on one of our construction sites where you will gain experience and training in the management and construction of one of our projects.

Throughout the programme you will have the opportunity to work on all stages of the project including design.

The @one Alliance is a collaborative organisation of consultants and contractors working together to deliver more than half of Anglian Water's capital investment programme.

MWH Treatment is an integrated design and build solution provider operating in the water sector. We have over 1,000 staff working across eight regional centres, primarily supporting six long term water sector frameworks operating both as MWH Treatment and increasingly in joint ventures and alliances.

Working within a specific framework/alliance, you will support the project delivery teams by providing assistance in the following;

  • Assisting the project team to help drive projects forward.
  • Setting out and management of site operations, to ensure safety, quality, cost-effectiveness, timely production and customer satisfaction.
  • Writing method statements and risk assessments, and procuring sub-contractor, labour, plant and material resources.
  • Ensuring actions are carried out at the right time, by the right people and to a controlled budget.
  • Develop key relationships with clients, design teams, consultants, contractors and other project stakeholders.
