Assistant Project Manager

What do you get if you cross an award winning, innovative, water company and over 300 dedicated team members? Our Capital Delivery team of course!

Our ambitious and innovative projects (all 5000+ of them) help to combat the challenges of waste and water infrastructure, flooding and water quality. Be a part of something bringing benefits to our communities, health outcomes and environment.

It could be the biggest challenge of your career. If you want to do more because you care, we’d love to talk to you.



Are you a Junior/ Assistant Project Manager, or a Project Engineer with a strong, technical background, looking for new and exciting challenge to step into?


Within our Capital Design and Delivery department, we are looking for an Assistant Project Manager to join the Waste Treatment Delivery Team at our Raynesway (Derby) office.

As our Assistant Project Manager, you’ll be accountable for delivering on key project KPIs across a portfolio of large capital engineering and construction wastewater treatment projects.


You'll undertake financial management of projects and manage risks, as well as liaise with project stakeholders at all levels. Initially you'll focus on less complex and low risk projects, and you'll be supported in every way of your journey to grow and to do more. 



You'll ideally be qualified in a technical engineering or construction related discipline and contractual management will be a key part of your role. Ideally you’ll hold an APM or Prince 2 Foundation, however it's not essential. If you have some exposure to NEC project management framework that would be an asset.   

You'll have a strong ability to build successful working relationships with internal and external stakeholders from a diverse range of backgrounds, with the ability to innovate and anticipate unexpected issues and challenges as they arise. 


The right skills and experience are important. But if you have the right character, positivity, and a caring attitude we want to talk to you, too. 


We welcome people from all walks of life and celebrate individuality as we know diverse minds, experiences and backgrounds help us to learn and better serve our communities. We want people who show up and get involve. Those who are ready to be part of something bigger and who want to make a difference because they care. Is that you? 



It’s not just a job you’ll get here, you’ll get a career too. We have a range of benefits that reward and recognise great work and award-winning training to ensure you reach your potential. And we’ll also help you play your part in looking after the environment and the community in which we live.  Here’s some of our favourites:


  • 28 days holiday + bank holidays (and the ability to buy/ sell up to 5 additional days per year)  
  • 10% monthly discount with Busy Bee Nurserys, and one-week free childcare
  • Annual bonus scheme (of up to £2,250 depending 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  
  • Electric vehicle scheme and retail offers  
  • Family friendly policies  
  • Two volunteering days per year  



We can’t wait to hear from you.
