The role is based at our Buttershaw site, Bradford but will involve regular travel across the Yorkshire region.

Successful candidates must be highly proficient in the use of Microsoft applications, including Excel and PowerPoint.

Industry/sector experience is desirable.

The successful candidate must be able to thrive as part of multi-discipline working groups and be confident in taking a leading role within such groups to ensure the delivery of outputs against a backdrop of competing priorities and pressures. As such strong influencing, communication and presenting skills are essential.

What's in it for you?

Career enhancement and development, colleague well-being and a genuinely positive work experience for all are key priorities. We are continuously evolving and improving our ways of working and you will support us in achieving our vision of 'taking responsibility for the water environment for good'. Benefits include attractive pension scheme, quarterly performance related bonus scheme, 25 days holiday and a range of lifestyle benefits including discounts on holidays, travel and high street retail savings.

If you feel this opportunity is suitable and you match the skills required, then please apply online and complete the application process. If you could also please upload an up to date copy of your CV outlining your relevant experience for the role and a covering letter.

Everyone has an idea of what a water company does. Here in Yorkshire we make sure that all 5.2 million people living in the region have clean safe drinking water on tap and their waste water taken away. But for us it's so much more than this.

We care passionately about the environments and communities in which we work; we always look for new innovative ways to do things that deliver great value for our business and deliver the service our customers want and expect.

Our customers are at the heart of what we do and how we do things. We work best as a company to deliver this when we work together - team work, creativity, enthusiasm and passion are inherent within our 3000 people who work 24/7 365 days a year to keep Yorkshire flowing.

We are a business that has its eye on the future, planning ahead to look after Yorkshire's water, today, tomorrow and always.

Yorkshire Water reserve the right to close this position before the published closing date, should the need occur. We therefore advise that you complete and submit your application as soon as possible.
