Company Updates

  • It is sometimes easy to forget how nice your working environment is and how it can effect your health and wellbeing. We offer such a diverse range of jobs from working in a fast moving office environment to working outside in the fresh air.

    Each year we ask our staff to send in their photos from out and about and its amazing what we see. There are lots of animal encounters and some lovely views. In particular this year we have seen hedgehog and Badger rescues and even a slow worm relocation! At our Pitsford site we have also seen our staff up-cycle an old windsock into a hanging basket with flowers to attract pollinators.

    It is great to see our staff celebrating the biodiversity of our sites. If you’re interested in a career with Anglian Water then take a look at our careers site for an interesting variety of jobs http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQ12e

    Anglian Water Careers

    We supply water and water recycling services to more than six million domestic and business customers.

  • Yesterday we attended a careers fair in Chelmsford run by the Career Transition Partnership. This was specifically for military personnel leaving the armed forces. It was great to see lots of companies attending and an opportunity for military leavers to network and chat with different organisations.

    Our workforce includes many Reservists and ex-service men and women and it is important to recognise just how many transferable skills they have. We need to encourage more companies in our region to get involved. If you would like to know more about how you can be involved with supporting the armed forces then please send us a message, we are happy to share.

    I have been working at Anglian Water part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Private healthcare
    Flexible and understanding to part timers
    Friendly and welcoming
    Sympathetic
    Genuinely care about their customers

    Cons

    Not enough car parking for the amount of employees. Unable to get parked sometimes.

    Not much room for career progression but that’s more due to the fact people don’t tend to leave.
