Future-proofing our workforce

We’ve improved conversations with our workforce, through regular get-togethers to discuss hot topics, and an accessible senior management team that gets out and about across the network.

We have a unique relationship with our contractors. We use local engineering firms to deliver all our mains replacement work, as we find their local knowledge and pride in the job benefits everyone. We’ve recently renegotiated new eight-year contracts with these companies, underlying our commitment to these partnerships.

We also remain committed to graduate and apprentice schemes, giving young jobseekers a flying start while future-proofing our business.

Education and training

We’re committed to developing young people’s skills, to improve their employment prospects and to help make our region more prosperous.

Working with a range of trusted partners, we aim to support and inspire up to 20,000 young and vulnerable people each year, from primary school children to young jobseekers.

We also work with partner organisations to promote key safety messages, such as the dangers of playing near work sites.

Are we measuring up to your expectations? What can we do to keep your costs down?

We don't have any upcoming events just now, but please check back again soon.
