Start your career here
An apprenticeship is the springboard to your future
As an apprentice you can earn while you learn, gaining hands on experience in areas of the business relevant to your role. With a range of award-winning roles on offer, you’re bound to find your future career.
Last year, 100% of apprentices were given full time, permanent roles after their apprenticeship.
As well as gaining skills essential to your role, you will have support from people who’ve done the job not to mention you’ll have access to a variety of personal development opportunities.
Together with gaining Ofsted recognised qualifications you will obtain industry leading skills and the experience you’ll need for your career.
You’ll spend time experiencing different areas of the business that are relevant to your role, setting you up for a long term career with us. And we mean long term.
Along with your work activities you can get to know your fellow apprentices, and your own strengths, at outward bound team building weeks. You’ll have the opportunity to take part in team challenges for National Apprentice Week and get involved with the North West apprentice network.
At the end of your apprenticeship you can become a United Utilities ambassador and inspire other young people to come and work with us.
