Our purpose is taking care of life’s essentials, but we’re also big on making a difference, not just because we should but because we care.  


Severn Trent Services currently have multiple exciting opportunities for Mechanics to join our growing team. These roles will involve working and travelling between our Water and Wastewater assets on various MoD sites across the UK, though this role will predominantly be based in and around the Midlands.


If you’re a qualified Mechanic but have no previous water industry experience –

Don’t worry, as having the right attitude and behaviours will allow us to teach you the rest!




This opportunity sits within our Severn Trent Services business, a commercial arm of the Severn Trent Group. Severn Trent Services provide water and waste services to companies nationwide, including the MoD and The Coal Authority.


As Mechanical Technicians working on our Water Services Contracts team, you will be responsible for maintaining, assessing, diagnosing, and determining the most appropriate resolutions for our Water and Wastewater assets.


You’ll reactively respond to asset failures across various sites, alongside carrying out scheduled day-to-day maintenance, maintaining appropriate stock levels of spare parts all whilst ensuring that the highest standards of Health and Safety are maintained. 


In exchange we’ll provide a company van & fuel card to allow you to start work from home whilst also investing in your personal development;  including Compex training, that, once passed qualifies you for an allowance of £100.00 per month.




As a minimum we’re looking for an NVQ Level 3 (or equivalent) in a Mechanical discipline, transferable skills from other industries and a full UK driving licence. We can provide training to bring you up to speed on water and wastewater processes – although having experience working with industrial equipment such as mechanical drives, gearboxes, hydraulic systems and pumping systems would be highly desirable.


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.  



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 employ thousands of people from across our community who really care about what they do. Because that is how we do what we do. 


And when it comes to inclusion, we’re making sure we keep up the progress with our wonderful working groups – LGBTQ+, Women in Operations & STEM, Disability and Ethnicity; who help us do just that.  


We do more, because we care.  




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:
