Post end date : 07- Oct- 2022 

Role Type :  Full Time Contract 

Secondment length : NA 

Recruiter : Abbie Drage 




Playing your part in making a big difference to the environment and communities we serve. Our people make Hafren Dyfrdwy (HD) a truly exciting and inclusive place to work – a place where you can be yourself and let your skills shine.


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.


We have an exciting opening in our Powys region to join the Shropshire & Hafren Dyfrdwy team as a Catchment Lead. Working closely alongside both our internal teams and contract partners, you will lead the performance of the sewerage network in Hafren Dyfrdwy.


As a Catchment Lead you will put our customers and the environment at the heart of everything we do, focusing on delivering ‘right first time’ solutions and driving improvement activity across HD.


It’s an incredibly diverse role with scope to manage your own workload with loads of development opportunities, working within a great team based in our Shelton depot in Shrewsbury.


If you love working with customers, are able to build strong relationships with stakeholders at different levels and you are genuinely keen to make a difference in your day-to-day work, this may be the role for you.




Your key accountabilities in helping us will be:


  • Lead and promote a safe working environment to achieve Goal Zero whilst ensuring all quality standards are met.
  • Work closely with our contract partner to help deliver first class performance for our customers
  • Take the lead on all Pollution incidents on the HD sewerage network to ensure we deliver a great response and capture key learning
  • Investigate all incidents within HD to prevent repeats
  • Provide operational and technical input into the capital investment process
  • Manage our EDM activity on the HD network to ensure compliance
  • Work with stakeholders such as NRW to build great relationships



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.


Because this role involves travelling around to different sites, we do require a full driving license and your willingness to get out and about in all weathers.  


Experience working in a similar background would be advantageous however we’re genuinely keen to hear from applicants who feel they could really make a difference in this role.


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:


  • Competitive salary
  • 26 days holiday + bank holidays (and the ability to buy/ sell up to 5 days per year) 
  • Annual bonus scheme (of up to £2,225 per annum based on company performance) 
  • Leading pension scheme – we will double your contribution (up to 8% when you contribute 4%) 
  • 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 



Apply now to build an amazing career and be part of a brilliant team. We can’t wait to hear from you.
