Things to consider

The Apprentice schemes at Severn Trent require may you to work across a range of our operational sites and key offices across the Severn Trent Water region as part of your training. Meetings and training courses are also held across the region, so willingness to be mobile and flexible with location is essential. Generally, our Project Managers Apprentices are based in the following Midlands areas: Derbyshire,Warwickshire and Coventry.

As a regional water company we supply customers across the whole Severn Trent region, covering most of the East & West Midlands. With over 100 clean water and 1000 waste water treatment sites, as well as our office locations, we are unable to show every possible site available to our apprentices and we generally expect our apprentices to be flexible within the region.

The sites listed are a representation of sites where we commonly place apprentices during part of their training, though we work very closely with each apprentice to make sure that their site-based training is in a location as best suited to them as possible.
