Modern Apprentice Blogs


Scottish Water is looking for the next generation of water experts to help ensure it continues providing high quality drinking water, a cleaner environment and improved service to the customers and communities which are at the heart of the business.

Caring for Scotland’s significant water resources depends upon a hugely skilled and dedicated workforce, offering Modern Apprentices an exciting variety of career opportunities. In 2016, Scottish Water is looking to recruit a further 40 apprentices.

For Modern Apprenticeship Week 2016 we interviewed six of our Modern apprentices to create blogs describing their experiences so far in their roles. We will post a new blog post every day from the 29th of February until the 5th of March.

Listen to our Modern Apprenticeship Week Radio Advert here.
