We are looking for an enthusiastic staff member, primarily based at our prestigious waterfront offices in Hayling Island. The position would suit someone looking to start a career in the water industry

The work will be divided between office and field based activities, depending on the current project work load.

The field activities will include installing data logging equipment on hydrants and visiting pumping stations and reservoirs to log pressures and reservoir depths. You will be required to work with another person to help navigate and install / retrieve the loggers. We will provide all the necessary training and equipment to do this.
