City: King's Lynn
Contract type: Full time

Starting Salary £23,195

Full time / 37 hours a week / Permanent

Travel across Kings Lynn, Norwich, Swaffham & Dereham.

Become part of our sampling team!

Before it reaches our customer’s 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 our sewers, it’s delivered to our 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.

We analyse and test hundreds of clean water and final effluent samples everyday.

What will you be doing?

Joining the scientific sampling team using your methodical and scientific approach, you’ll travel around the Norfolk area visiting Anglian Water’s water treatment works and recycling centres, boreholes, reservoirs, rivers and customer properties collecting water samples and carrying out on-site chlorine tests.

Following vital scientific processes, you’ll continuously work within the regulatory guidelines, meeting our quality standards. 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.

You’ll build effective working relationships with your colleagues back in the laboratory, who are relying on your high levels of service and you’ll also engage with customers, where you’ll be representing Anglian Water in a professional and approachable manner delivering excellent customer service.

The ability to work within a defined method and record information accurately means you’ll need focus and a strong attention to detail. Successful candidates will enjoy driving and working on their own whilst working within a larger team.

You should thrive in a time critical role, be self-motivated and able to work in an organised manner ensuring all work is undertaken as specified by our methods and procedures.

  • Personal private health care
  • 23 days annual leave – rising with length of service
