A not-for-profit water company in Wales has announced that it will be creating a number of graduate opportunities in 2024.

Welsh Water Dwr Cymru has announced plans for its 2024 graduate intake, inviting applications for its latest training programme for new talent, with opportunities on offer being split across a wide range of roles.

Martin Driscoll, director of people at Welsh Water said: “At Welsh Water, we're passionate about creating life chances and meaningful job opportunities. Our graduate programme is a great way to bring talented individuals into our organisation and develop the skills we need to deliver on our customer promises and run our essential service.

“We’re excited to launch our largest ever offering of new talent programmes and we are looking forward to reviewing the applications.”


The 30 roles range across finance, IT, management, engineering, science and quantity surveying.

Since the project’s launch in 2009, as many as 99 graduates have completed the two-year programme, with many continuing to work for the company afterwards.

Rana Al-Yanai, a graduate of the programme, said: “I have learnt much more than I ever imagined about water, waste, and business strategy. Every day is a different day and I have developed leadership and coaching skills making me a more confident individual through the opportunities provided.”

Harri Moncrieffe, who is in the final year of the programme, said: “The graduate scheme is the perfect platform for you to start you career in a challenging and dynamic industry.

“During my time so far, I have been immersed in different teams working on a variety of small-scale reactive schemes, to multi-million-pound projects, all of which have been invaluable to my development.”
