Yorkshire Water manages the collection, treatment and distribution of water around the Yorkshire region, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day – that’s a lot of water!

Here in Yorkshire we make sure that all 5.2 million people living in the region have clean safe drinking water on tap and their waste water taken away. But for us it's so much more than this.

We care passionately about the environments and communities in which we work; we always look for new innovative ways to do things that deliver great value for our business and deliver the service our customers want and expect.

The water industry as a whole is facing a number of challenges, from population growth to water scarcity to climate change to name a few. So, one thing you will never be short of is challenges!

If you have an enquiring mind and want to challenge the way we do things, come and join our Graduate Scheme and help shape our future. 

Overview of the Programme 

Our Data Science Graduate Programme will give you a solid grounding in how we use data across the business to deliver leading-edge solutions to our customers.

You will join a growing team, with a breadth of experience which will help you to develop your skills and knowledge over the two-year programme. We will encourage you to push yourself to learn new skills so that there is continuous personal and professional development through the course of the programme.

What will the Graduate Programme involve?

The graduate programme will consist of up to six structured placements across the 2-year programme. You can expect to build a strong understanding of how our business operates and how various functions interact with each other to provide a great service to our 5.2 million customers.
During the two-year programme you will work on a variety of projects and it will be your desire to learn and adapt your skills to meet new challenges that will see you succeed on this programme.
