Application window for graduate scheme moves into final days

The utility is urging graduate recruits to apply for a place on the two-year programme based in the company’s Newport headquarters in Wales before the deadline on 7 April.

“Our graduate programme will prepare the next generation of gas engineers and managers.”

Applicants should have (or expect to achieve) a bachelors or masters degree class of 2:2 or higher in Construction Management, Civil Engineering or a degree course which is accredited by IMechE, IET or IGEM.

Sarah Hopkins, WWU’s people & engagement director, said: “Our graduate programme will prepare the next generation of gas engineers and managers and give them all the skills they need to deliver for our customers’ whether working in an operational or a back office support role.”

The graduate programme is wide-ranging and focuses on the achievement of Chartered Engineer status via a series of engineering placements and a comprehensive graduate support network.

The programme is accredited by both the Institute of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).

The graduate scheme opened shortly after Wales & West Utilities announced its intention to recruit 23 new apprentices to work on its operations across Wales and the south west of England.

Since the company was set up in 2005, Wales & West Utilities have recruited more than 140 apprentices and 11 graduates.
