Redhill, Surrey (temporarily remote due to Covid-19)

If you have a strong mathematical background and an inquisitive mind, this is a great opportunity to join a supportive environment where you’ll be given the tools and encouragement you need to develop and grow your skills and career. As a Network Operations Analyst, you will help ensure our distribution network, consisting of 3,800km of water mains, is run efficiently.

About us:

Our vision is to be an outstanding water company delivering service excellence and we believe our people are integral to helping us achieve our goal to ensure that we deliver a high-quality service that is reliable and resilient. Our plan for the future is to ensure the services we provide are fair, future-proof, good for the planet and utilise smart technology. Water plays a role in all our lives. It’s an essential service and one that we are proud to deliver to our customers and communities.

We don’t just want to be proud of what we do, we also want to celebrate how we do it. We are an inclusive Team that values diversity and community, what makes us different as well as what we have in common. Your contribution to delivering our Business Plan over the next 5 years and our 5 pledges to our customers is vital. We aren’t just recruiting for experience - potential, fit and values are fundamental to building and developing our team. We want you to develop, grow and succeed and enjoy working at SES.

This is a great opportunity to join a long-standing, close-knit team who work collaboratively to support one another in a friendly work environment.

We will provide you with the training and development you need to build on your skills, knowledge and experience and grow within your role.

Reporting to the Network Operations Manager, you will help plan, co-ordinate and manage network operations, particularly the repair of bursts and operational network maintenance.
