Working for us

At Wales & West Utilities everyone in our team is crucial to moving our business forward. Central to this are our values that encompass both our business strategy and the people who work within our organisation. 

We're proud to offer all the benefits that you would expect from a large and successful company, including a Defined Contribution pension scheme benefits, 25 days holiday a year (plus all public bank holidays) and Choices - a flexible benefits scheme which offers easy access to a range of specially negotiated products and services for colleagues to choose from, should they wish to do so. 

We invest £2m a week in pipe - but we also invest in people too. We're formally recognised by Investors in People for demonstrating our commitment to high performance through good people management and development.
