We are recruiting for our Sheffield Education Centre

Yorkshire Water are currently looking to recruit an Education Guide to share the value of water with the visiting public when our Education Centre in Sheffield is re-opened later this year.

Located at Ewden water treatment works, a fully operational site just south of Deepcar, the education centre was developed with the help of teachers to cover the core elements of the National Curriculum Key Stage 2, including numeracy, literacy, geography and science.

Although the majority of visitors are children we do welcome groups of all ages and interests at Ewden. Visitors can find out how water is cleaned and how we supply our customers with a constant supply of fresh drinking water.

Ewden water treatment works came into operation in 1994 at a cost of £22 million. The old version, which was also built on the same site, was completed in 1935 and as a result of the 1st World War and the interruptions and damage caused, it took 22 years to build. 

It provides clean water to a population of 120,000 in Sheffield and surrounding areas.

Anne Reed, who manages Yorkshire Water's Education Programme said: "We’re keen to open the centre at Ewden and provide an educational resource for schools in Sheffield again when we’ve recruited the right person to join our team. If you fancy talking to a wide range of our customers about all things water and education we’d love to hear from you. The role is only being advertised on our website and social media channels and has a closing date of 20 January.”
