Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water

Future-proofing the company, addressing succession and ensuring the best possible workforce training are reasons why Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water has a dedicated talent programme.

Welsh Water is truly committed to their career development, offering continuous investment in recognising that people underpin everything the company does. Working with training providers across Wales, the company also provides a structured programme with role and product specific training.

Each apprentice and trainee has a dedicated on site buddy, as well as development days every six months to focus on personal effectiveness and soft skills training. This approach ensures the apprentices and trainees are equipped with the right knowledge and skills to apply themselves in the workplace.

As a result of the programme, the company has a 100 per cent conversion rate of apprentices and trainees that complete their training and move into a permanent post.

“To achieve our vision ‘to earn the trust of our customers everyday’ we will continue to attract, develop, motivate and retain productive and engaged employees. The goal of our Talent Search programme is to provide a pipeline that supports a sustainable high-performance company.” - Jodie King, head of talent development
