Why Severn Trent?    

Think of water and you probably think of us. We’re one of the largest regulated water companies across England and Wales. Severn Trent runs through the heart of the UK, providing essential services from the Bristol Channel to the Humber, and from Shropshire to the East Midlands.

In Wales, our customers are looked after by Hafren Dyfrdwy, our new company is the teaming up of Dee Valley Water and Severn Trent and will bring wonderful water to mid and north-east Wales. The partnership combines an existing warm community approach, with the perks of being part of a wider public company.


Together we are part of Severn Trent PLC where our passion is making sure wonderful water reaches our customers and taking their waste away safely, so that they can put the kettle on or jump in the shower without thinking.


Our teams are dedicated to maintaining the flow of water to and from our customers’ homes. We’re continually investing in our people and infrastructure, so everyone can tap into the wonderful water we provide well into the future.


You’ll be part of a team that will help drive change in our business:
