Yorkshire Water

Our company in a nutshell

It's taken for granted that we provide clean water and sanitation every day for over five million people, but there's so much more to Yorkshire Water.

We need to ensure we deliver the right services, protect the environment and meet our legal requirements, and we need to do all this while keeping customer bills as low as possible. Are you up for the challenge?

Who are we?

Yorkshire Water is a water supply and treatment utility company. Our reach is growing; we serve homes and business in West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, the East Riding of Yorkshire, part of North Lincolnshire, most of North Yorkshire and part of Derbyshire, in England.

The company has its origins in the Yorkshire Water Authority, one of ten regional water authorities created by the Water Act 1973, and privatised under the terms of the Water Act 1989. In recent years, we have invested £3.5 billion (that's an average of £750 per household in Yorkshire) to ensure customers have the very best water on tap, and to protect our beautiful environment with the safe treatment of Yorkshire's waste water.

Careers with us

Our graduate programme involves an intensive induction period, coupled with a number of practical placements. You'll be encouraged to take responsibility for your own learning. So if you spot an opportunity to explore something that interests you, we'll be behind you all the way!

Placements can involve shadowing team members in their day-to-day role on operational or head office sites, contributing to regulatory deadlines, or working on business-critical projects.
