About Yorkshire Water

What we do

We manage the collection, treatment and distribution of water in Yorkshire, supplying around 1.24 billion litres of drinking water each day - that's a lot of water.

At the same time we also collect, treat and dispose of about one billion litres of waste water safely back into the environment.

To do this we operate more than 700 water and sewage treatment works and 120 reservoirs. We look after 62,000 miles of water and sewerage mains - enough pipework to circulate the earth!

Careers with Yorkshire Water

It is important we attract and retain highly talented people as we all make a difference to the success of the business.

We feel that if we have been successful in choosing the right people for the right roles, and if people feel rewarded and valued in their roles then this will reflect in our employee retention rates. In 2012/2013 we have employed 193 people within Yorkshire Water, 182 (94%) of which remain in employment. This is shown in Figure T9. We have no zero hour contracts within the company. Our human rights policy will also be coming online in the next few months.

Individuals are given real responsibility in the roles that they perform, empowered to use their own initiative, make decisions and generate new ideas. Flexibility and teamwork are also key in delivering our operational activities.
