Contract Analyst


Hello. We’re Severn Trent and we think water is wonderful. And we’re pretty keen on people, too. 


Our people are what makes Severn Trent a truly exciting and inclusive place to work. We’re a team of over 7,000 people with a purpose to deliver one of life’s essentials. We do it all while thriving in our unique culture and making a lasting difference to our planet, society, and careers.  


If you have an eye for detail, joining our award winning Procurement and Contract Management team, will not only benefit you but also the communities we serve.




Working within our forward-thinking Procurement and Contract Management team based on-site at our Raynesway offices in Derby, you have the chance to join Severn Trent as a Contract Analyst.


In this role, you’ll have the opportunity to liaise with suppliers, collate performance data, spot trends and correlations and forecasting across the contract. If you come from an analytical background, this may just be the opportunity for you.


Let’s talk about some of the key accountabilities of the position…. 


  • Supporting the contract management team to track and reconcile spend and understanding price/volume issues
  • Maintaining the early warning register and providing analysis
  • Tracking and producing management information reports for meetings with stakeholders on a weekly basis
  • Analysing data monthly against KPIs
  • Supporting the monthly valuation/reconciliation closure process including monitoring financial compliance and identifying and resolving areas of non-compliance with key stakeholders
  • Providing analytical support to the contract management team including validating data and costs, spotting errors and omissions, and keeping timely records




Whilst there are no formal qualifications required for you to do this role, having a curious mind and an eye for detail will go a long way.


Ideally, we would like it if you have an aptitude for Microsoft Excel and be familiar with analysing and manipulating data – however, this is an opportunity for you to progress in a career procurement, so if have experience in delivering quality insight and management information and enjoy managing stakeholders with conflicting requirements, deadlines and priorities, this is the role for you.


Of course, it’s important that we attract the right skill sets, and those with the right experience but we value character, positivity and a caring attitude in equal weight.

We want people who show up and roll their sleeves up. Restless spirits who are ready to be part of something bigger, who care, who really care... because when you really care, you’ll go above and beyond. When you really care you don’t just talk about it, you do more.




Working here isn’t just a job. You can build a career at Severn Trent. We’ll reward you for it, too. We have a range of benefits that recognise great work, and award-winning training to help you reach your potential. And we’ll also help you play your part in looking after the environment and the communities where we live. 


With that in mind, here are just some of our favourite perks that you’ll get being part of the Seven Trent family:  



  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays (and the ability to buy/ sell up to 5 days per year) 
  • Annual bonus scheme (of up to £1,500 per annum based on company performance) 
  • Leading pension scheme – we will double your contribution (up to 15% when you contribute 7.5%) 
  • Sharesave – the chance to buy Severn Trent Plc shares at a discounted rate 
  • Dedicated training and development with our ‘Academy’ 
  • Electric vehicle scheme and retail offers 
  • Family friendly policies 
  • Two volunteering days per year 




We can’t wait to hear from you.  

Before you apply, you’ll need an updated copy of your CV and about five minutes to spare. If you’re not too sure about what you need to do, or have a question about the role before applying, please do reach out to our amazing team of recruiters at
