Who are we?

Thames Water is the UK’s largest water and wastewater company. We make a daily difference to our 15 million customers by supplying 2.6 billion litres of water through 32,000 km’s of pipes, to keep taps flowing and toilets flushing. We are an essential service and have operated throughout the Covid19 pandemic. 

At Thames Water, every one of our actions, big and small, matters every day. Water is essential to daily life, and that means our business is always open.

What you will be doing

Our Project Engineers manage all aspects of their projects including initial scoping of the need, competitively tendering the work, contractor procurement, site set up and inductions, and health and safety inspections, through to commissioning, training and handover to the operations teams. You will have advice and support from our subject matter experts, experienced colleagues, and health and safety advisors in the delivery of your projects.

We’re looking for you to:

  • Good understanding of engineering concept and project delivery techniques
  • Maintaining compliance with our Asset Standards, associated British & International Standards and professional codes of conduct

A perfect job for an experienced engineer who wants to join a highly collaborative and supportive team and deliver modern and innovative solutions across several operational sites. You will have the opportunity to make a genuine difference by improving pumping and treatment process performance and efficiency, making life easier for our operations colleagues and delivering value for money for our customers. The role also offers flexible working and is a good opportunity for a Project Engineer seeking a better work-life balance.

Our competitive salary package includes an excellent contributory pension, 26 days holiday per year increasing to 30 with the length of service and a wider benefits scheme.

We’re proud of the positive ways of working we have adopted during the pandemic. We want to create a more flexible and dynamic environment so all our colleagues can thrive. For our office-based roles we are moving to a hybrid approach where we will provide options around working from our offices, our operational sites and home dependent on role/team/individual. This will be discussed during the assessment process.
