Qualify as a Chartered Accountant in a fast-changing industry


There are few opportunities to explore and impact the financial workings of a FTSE 100 company, from top to bottom. This is one of them.


We serve over eight million customers, across the UK. To do it, we’re constantly developing and maintaining our complex network of clients and suppliers, investing in sustainable energy, and finding innovative ways to drive efficiency, across our organisation. This programme will put you at the heart of that process, in four unique business areas.


We’re a business with an ambitious vision: to become the UK’s leading water company


  1. Explore each of our four core Finance areas
  2. Take on a real, business-as-usual role
  3. Make a substantive impact on our company, throughout your journey
  4. Achieve a professional accounting qualification
  5. Develop all-round knowledge of a leading UK business’s financial function
  6. Work towards a permanent Business Leadership or Technical Expert role

 

What you’ll be doing


During your four, nine-month placements, you’ll explore all four sides of our financial function: Business Information, Planning & Performance, the Financial Services Centre, and our Group Technical Areas. At the same time, you’ll study for your professional accounting certification (either with ACCA or CIMA, according to your preference). You’ll also take on positions that already exist and are integral to our business, rather than having been created specifically for Graduates.

 

What we're looking for


  1. A degree in any discipline, with any grade qualification
  2. Strong customer focus with the ability to build lasting business relationships
  3. Sharp commercial thinking with the ability to create financial value in a project
  4. Attention to detail and analytical skills to find and fix the root cause of a problem
  5. Drive and initiative to deliver insights from data and communicate its meaning
  6. A passion for finance and the ambition to continually improve.
