Thames top water company to work for, say students

Last reviewed:


Thames Water is the number one water company of choice for students, according to the influential Guardian 300 list.

The list, which is published annually, saw over 60,000 students vote for UK companies they’d most like to work for, with the UK’s largest water and wastewater provider jumping 85 places on last year’s rankings, to reach 131 place.

Laura Feltz, Thames Water’s human resources coordinator said: “Our improvement on last year is testament to the efforts of my team, who travel the length and breadth of the country to talk with as many students as possible.

She continued: “It’s excellent to see that our ever improving graduate scheme is resulting in students recognising us as an employer of choice.”

Helena Soteriou, a Thames Water graduate from 2016 said: “I’m not surprised that students have ranked us top of the water industry.

“I would recommend the scheme to anyone – there’s never a dull moment. One minute you’re learning about major infrastructure and the next your discussing environmental sustainability!”

Google topped the poll again, with Channel 4 the only new entry in the top 10.

Thames Water’s Graduate Scheme will open for 2018 applications in October and more information can be found here.
