Why Bristol Water?
Bristol Water provides water to over a million customers in the Bristol area, this equates to over one thousand square miles and 264,000,000 litres of water supplied everyday!
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 don’t just give people water. We keep them healthy and help them grow. People are the reason we work around the clock and test our water hundreds of times every day.
We’re here to have a positive impact on people and the planet for generations. Without people, it’s just water. With water, families flourish, businesses grow, and people create.
We’re a morning cuppa, that well-deserved bubble bath (although we’d prefer a four-minute shower), and that cold Friday pint after a long week.
We’re full of colour, pride and spirit… just like our small patch of the planet.
We’ve been here for generations, we served your great-great-great grandparents (if they lived in Bristol, anyway).
Almost everyone who works here, also lives in the area.
We were born out of the needs of Bristolians and we’re still part of that today. So, we do what we do for ourselves, our families, our friends…our people.
Did you know we’re one of the smallest water companies in the UK, and we love it.
It means we’re closer to people and we can do the things that matter. Being small means we can be responsive. We punch above our weight, leading the way. We show others how it’s done and have big opportunities for our staff.
We’re in it together
We’re stronger when we work together. Our willingness and desire to collaborate is our secret to success.
We welcome applications from all individuals from all backgrounds, if you share our values, we’ll want to work with you to do good.
For the planet
We’re on a mission to save the planet from pollution and waste. We aim to make every bit of the environment we touch better.
Bristol Water. It’s what we’re made of.
Our purpose - To have a positive impact on society and the environment to build trust beyond water.
Bristol Water is committed to the welfare of our customers and expects all staff to share this commitment. All direct customer facing appointments are subject to a basic DBS check.
