At Anglian Water we supply water and water recycling services to more than six million customers in the east of England and Hartlepool. Our huge region stretches from the Humber estuary to the Thames estuary, and from Buckinghamshire to Lowestoft on the east coast. We operate and maintain 112,833 kilometres of water and sewer pipes to supply and transport water across some 27,500 square kilometres to serve our customers. 


We are looking for an Waste Water Modeller, who ideally will be early in their career, to join our lively and driven team of hydraulic modellers working in urban drainage, tasked with managing, maintaining and using our hydraulic models, ensuring a best reflection of our real-life sewer systems. 


The modeller is required to interpret and understand current issues and trends relating to sewerage capacity to support the needs of the wider Anglian Water business, using models to test impacts and future scenarios such as growth, as well as investigation of past events, and to provide effective solutions to the problems we may face. This may be on a small localised scale, or for larger catchment or even region-wide planning, looking at short, medium and longer-term impacts, and helping to inform strategies to enable our business to deliver the best service to our customers. 


You will look to deliver against project delivery targets by implementing collaborative and innovative principles, ensuring projects are delivered to budget and time, and providing a necessary technical capability to the business. You will promote interventions both local and strategic for current and future outcome delivery incentives.

·         A clear understanding of uncertainty and risk 

·         Adept at communicating your knowledge to non-technical parties 

·         Excellent reporting skills
