Requirements

In order to help the Company meet its performance commitments you will have the capability to solve problems often under pressure and to tight deadlines. You will need to possess a can-do attitude with an ability to deal effectively with unforeseen circumstances.

Root-cause methodology in understanding water quality events and failures, as well as implementation of processes to prevent reoccurrence is an essential part of your role. You will possess excellent analytical skills and the ability to fault find processes and systems whilst handing large amounts of diverse data, enabling identification of potential risks to compliance.

Preparation of regulatory and investigatory reports and investigation and assistance with preparation of notifiable events for submission to our regulator is a key element of the role. Previous report writing skills are therefore required. You will also have the ability to build relationships and influence through effective interpersonal and communication skills, at all levels within Yorkshire Water, service partner organisations and work with other key stakeholders.

This role is technical, so a scientific and technical understanding of water treatment and network processes and their respective regulatory obligations is required. You will need to be IT literate and will be expected to rapidly become proficient in the use of the Business’s primary software packages.

A degree (or equivalent) in a scientific subject is highly desirable as is membership of a professional body, although professional experience and knowledge will be taken in to account. Other essential skills are: Project leading and co-ordination skills and to be able to use your own initiative as well as work as part of a wider team.

The role involves travel within Yorkshire and occasionally beyond, so a full valid EU driving licence is required.

Job responsibilities

You will be a focal point of support to the operational business and our key stakeholders. Day to day you will carry out a co-ordinated, planned and effective response to all operational aspects of water quality (source to tap) and ensure that processes and procedures are followed and agreed actions are implemented. You will drive continuous improvement in water quality by supporting and delivering key initiatives and projects. Once fully trained, you will provide support to the Water Quality Standby rota outside normal working hours.

You will be required to consider health and safety at all times and to support a zero accident culture. You will also support the development and training of field staff, service partners and other teams within the business. You will also be responsible for ensuring systems are in place to monitor levels of compliance against the different water quality targets, standards, and customer contact rates within SIM and our performance commitments.
