  • Investigating and making accurate diagnosis of Network problems.
  • Investigate customer contacts both commercial and domestic with billing enquires at the customers address.
  • Providing both internal and external customers with a professional and customer focused service.
  • Playing a key role in the Incident Response Team.
  • Installing or maintaining water billing meters to assist in the accurate issue of water bills/collection of revenue and leakage control.
  • Resolving a wide variety of customer issues with our Network systems whilst ensuring we meet our demanding service standards.
  • Supporting service and main laying activities, as well as tracing supply pipes.
  • Attending customer’s properties to carry out investigations on water pipes
  • Resolving billing enquires linked to water usage
  • Investigating and problem-solving faults on the Bristol Waters mains Network so that the remedial action can be taken
  • Supporting with water quality resolutions within the potable network

What we’re looking for...

This is a customer facing role, so you will need strong customer services skills and you’ll be passionate about providing quality service to the local community.

  • Good problem-solving skills
  • Excellent customer skills, with effective communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Computer literacy and familiarity with basic software packages.
  • Hardworking and self-motivated with the ability to build trust

All the training that you will require to progress within the role will be provided.

You will be required to participate in a 24-hour stand-by rota and be prepared to work outside normal working hours.

As you can imagine, the work is physically demanding, whether you are operating valves, locating leaks, or carrying out routine monitoring and maintenance, so a reasonable level of fitness is required.

A company van is provided for business use only, therefore a full driving licence is essential.

Above all, you will need to demonstrate our competencies and core values: TRUST, SUPPORT, ACCOUNTABILITY, RESPECT, PROFESSIONALISM, PRIDE and AMBITION.

As well as a challenging, friendly environment and a great opportunity for development, the role offers:

  • Pension: We put in 8% if you put in 4%
  • Flexible, supportive friendly working environment
  • Access to flexible benefits and discounts via our portal
  • Free onsite parking when you’re in the office


Since 1846, we’ve been making people healthier and the economy stronger. We’ve served generations of families and will serve generations to come.

We’re here to have a positive impact on people and the planet for generations. We don’t just give people water - we keep them healthy and help them grow. We work around the clock, testing our water hundreds of times every day.

We take this same view with our 600 employees, we don’t just give them jobs in water, we keep them healthy and help them grow.

The best of both worlds

We’re one of the smallest water companies in the UK. Being small means we’re nimble and can achieve things quickly for our customers and our people.

But while we’re small, we’re also part of a larger family. In June 2021 we became part of the Pennon group, which also owns South West Water and Bournemouth Water.

This means that as part of our team, you’ll get the best of both worlds – the dynamism and fast pace of a smaller company, along with the security and breadth of opportunity that comes with being part of a large organisation.
