Anglian Water has embarked on their largest ever recruitment drive to wage war on leakage

200 roles advertised across the East of England

In 2017, Anglian Water became the first water company to use thermal imaging drones to pin point hard to find leaks. Since then the company has continued to push the boundaries of technology to wage a war on leakage, by using satellite imagery, naval hydrophones and fibre optic technology to find and fix leaks. 

Sean added: “Because we’ve achieved so much already, our job is now harder than ever. We’ve tackled the quick wins, the easy to find leaks, and we’re now in the realms of using the latest technology to help us find much smaller leaks, before they’re even visible to the naked eye.  It’s a big challenge, and a really exciting time to be expanding our leakage army to help us meet these tough targets.” 

 In 2018 Anglian Water was named Best Place to Work in Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Award. Earlier this year the company was named ‘Employer of the Year in the Utility Week Awards.

Between 2020-2025, we’ll be investing £77m in reducing leakage, with the aim of reaching world leading low levels.”
