Before it reaches your tap, drinking water is cleaned, disinfected and tested to ensure it’s safe to be consumed; after the water has been flushed and poured into the sewers, it’s delivered to the water recycling works, where it’s cleaned before it gets passed back to nature, where it’s also tested to ensure it’s not going to damage the environment.

You will be joining the scientific sampling team using your methodical and scientific approach, you’ll travel around the Cambridgeshire area visiting treatment works and recycling centres, boreholes, reservoirs, rivers, and customer properties collecting water samples and carrying out on-site chlorine tests.

You’ll prepare various sampling bottles, ensuring the accuracy of every single sample that you collect; you’ll then return the samples to the laboratory for them to be thoroughly analysed. 

The work you’ll do is critical to the whole scientific analysis process; you really will make a difference.

It’s essential that you have a scientific background OR A Level qualification (or equivalent); you’ll also be a reliable and professional individual with experience of providing excellent customer service.

You’ll need to be comfortable with manual lifting and driving throughout the day. This role will find you working in a variety of environments, therefore a flexible and can-do attitude is essential.

If successful in your application, you will benefit from access to a company vehicle; you must hold a full UK driving licence.
