How you can get involved

We do work that really matters, and that means you will too. But it’s not just what we do that we believe is important, it’s how we do it too. We’ve thought long and hard about the kind of company we want to be and created a set of values that underpin everything we do:

  • Succeeding together
  • Doing the right thing
  • Always improving
  • Working with care

Living these values and working together with our communities will help us create a resilient water future for the South East.

Southern Water Apprentice

“My apprenticeship has allowed me to build transferable skills and confidence whilst being employed and gaining first-hand experience. My advice to anyone considering a water apprenticeship would be to just apply, it's an amazing way not only to get valuable experience but also to gain an understanding of what it's like in the workplace.”
