Yorkshire Water is recruiting for seven IT apprentices to work in a variety of roles within the utility company.

Roles include cyber security and information security analyst, process design, IT asset management and successful candidates will get hands-on experience, along with full training and guidance.

Holly Galek, a current mechanical engineering apprentice at Yorkshire Water, said: “I was really eager to get into industry as soon as possible, and an apprenticeship was a clear pathway for me.

“When I first started, I didn’t quite have the required grades to get onto the degree and Yorkshire Water was very supportive in guiding me through the extra qualifications I needed. Feeling supported by my employer is something that I’ve really valued during my time on the programme.”

Applications are open now and can be found on the Yorkshire Water careers webpage

Lucy Burns, recruitment manager at Yorkshire Water, said: “There’s an awful lot of technology that goes into keeping our region’s taps flowing and taking away and treating wastewater.

“We're looking for IT apprentices who want to kick-start their careers in seven exciting new roles within out IT teams. Successful candidates will get hands-on experience, as well as help and support throughout their time on the programme.”

Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water around the Yorkshire region, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day.
