We are looking for an apprentice to join our Water Electrical Engineering team in Chesterfield. Communities around the globe are challenged to find effective ways to manage water throughout the water cycle, restoring the water we use to continue sustaining the natural environment. At AECOM, our Water specialists work together worldwide to find innovative solutions to the management of water.
Our work includes, Flood Management, Integrated Catchment Management, Hydraulic Modelling, Hydrology, Sustainable Drainage, Water Sensitive Urban Design, Dam & Reservoir design, Hydro-power, Mains Infrastructure Design (Clean and Foul), Non-Infrastructure Design (Pumping Stations, Storage Tanks), and Hydro-power. Our AECOM water teams have worked on projects such as:

•During Northern Ireland Water’s Integrated Wastewater Framework AECOM delivered services from concept to commissioning on a £150M capital programme involving new wastewater treatment works and major wastewater infrastructure upgrades throughout Northern Ireland. Services included feasibility, design, contract management and site supervision.
•The Grampian Growth Model was initiated by Scottish Water in response to the substantial levels of development activity predicted across the region over the next 20 years. AECOM successfully built a large scale computerised model of the mains network for use as a hydraulic tool to assess the impact of the growth and develop sustainable measures to ensure all customers, both existing and future, continue to receive the highest possible level of service.

Our Structured Training Excellence Programme (STEP) is designed to recruit school-leavers who show commitment, aptitude and enthusiasm, into science, engineering and technology careers with us. You will combine work-based on-the-job training and learning with further studies and must be willing to progress your career. After an initial probationary period you must be willing to undertake a day release course at a Further Education College to study a BTEC Level 3 or a higher level apprenticeship depending on your current education level, which would be funded by AECOM.
Driven by the successful completion of a BTEC Level 3 the successful applicant may want to continue their studies at a higher level. AECOM fully expects this and is keen to develop and nurture its talent. For those wishing to progress their education AECOM may continue to support individuals through an appropriate Level 4-6 apprenticeship to support you towards Incorporated Engineer status and subsequently Chartered Engineer status.
