In National Apprenticeship week 2015 Water Minister Dan Rogerson MP met water industry apprentices to hear how their careers are thriving after joining water companies.
Chelsea Lee-Grimes and Hannah Black from Severn Trent Water and Lauren Thompson from Essex and Suffolk Water explained how they are making the most of their opportunities.
They said a career in the water industry has been highly rewarding for them and even within a few years they have been able to gain experience working in many different parts of the business.
Mr Rogerson was full of praise and encouragement for the group and said that to meet future challenges it is vital that water companies continue to provide schemes for talented young people from their regions.
