    UTILITIES FIRM SEEKS TO RECRUIT MORE SOUTH WEST ENGINEERS

    Gas emergency and pipeline service Wales & West Utilities is on a recruitment drive and is looking for trainee gas engineers to join its team across south west England.

    Wales & West Utilities look after the pipes that keep the gas flowing to heat the homes and power businesses of 7.5m people across Wales and south west England. They operate the gas emergency service, connect new homes and businesses, and upgrade the gas network.

    The successful applicants will play a pivotal role in helping keep the gas flowing safely today, while preparing the gas network for green gas like hydrogen and biomethane, so that communities across Wales and south west England can play their part in a green future.

    The company is looking to fill 20 Trainee Gas Engineering Operative positions, which will all be based at operational hubs across south west England.

    The new engineers will join the company’s Trainee Gas Engineering Operative Programme, where they’ll be trained to respond to gas emergencies, upgrade the gas network and connect homes and businesses to the gas network.

    The closing date for these roles is 6 June and more information can be found at wwutilities.co.uk/about-us/our-company/careers/.

    Sarah Hopkins, Wales & West Utilities People & Engagement Director, said:

    “While most of the gas network is underground and out of sight, it plays a central role in the daily lives of people across south west England. Whether it’s heating your home, making the family dinner or having a hot bath, we understand how important it is for your gas supply to be safe and reliable and there when you need it: now more than ever.

    “Each and every person that we recruit will play their part in helping us to keep the gas flowing to heat homes and power businesses across our area today, while upgrading the gas network so we can all play our part in a green future.

    “This is a fantastic opportunity for the next generation of gas engineers to start their careers. To find out more and apply, please visit wwutilities.co.uk/careerswwutilities.co.uk/about-us/our-company/careers/.”

    Wales & West Utilities is committed to playing its part in getting to Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050. It has 46 power stations connected to its network which support renewables like wind and solar power, while 20 green gas sites inject enough decarbonised green gas to power approximately 180,000 homes. Additionally, the company’s network supplies bus garages in three locations across the south west of England, fuelling CNG buses that improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions from public transport.

    Entrants are seen here arriving at Cemetery Hill in Ilminster. Everyone appears rather wet at this point from the persistent rain. All rested briefly for a well earned pitstop then on their way once more.
