Transform the tech
Yorkshire relies on
Water is Yorkshire’s lifeblood. 5 million customers use it every day, to make a round of brews, clean a mucky pup or get the washing on. 140,000 businesses rely on it to make steel, style hair or brew pints. We’re behind every reservoir, river and coastline looked after, every day at the beach, every puddle splashed in, and every single drop of water.
We believe technology holds the key to making the most of this precious resource, and taking care of it, now and in the future. That’s why we’re investing millions and hiring 100 additional talented minds in fields from Solutions Architecture and Software Engineering to data analytics, so we can lead the way in driving change across the water industry.
Work with tech stack from Azure to SAP. Drive innovative new projects – like using satellites to locate pipe leaks deep underground, or leveraging AI to predict water surges and protect local communities.
Our big ambition is to put people at the heart of everything we do, so if you fancy being part of a 3,500 strong team who are helping us do amazing things for the people of Yorkshire, step right up.
Using technology to drive change
We have an ambitious change strategy to put technology and data at the heart of our operations. This is a major overhaul – and you’ll drive it. You’ll help create a Yorkshire Water Cloud Platform that can deliver more for customers and colleagues alike, with modern, intuitive apps, IT offerings designed round our people’s roles, and data reservoirs that can provide advanced insights. Of course, we’ll be consolidating and integrating everything from our applications and platforms to our databases and telemetry. We’ll also be looking to drive automation and machine learning across our water networks and services, and push the boundaries of our technologies in innovative ways.

Senior Data Scientist
Susan tells us about her journey at Yorkshire Water, how we've helped her progress and her proudest moment.
Ours is a business with a huge number of moving parts and variables – not least the weather. Data is key, to drive machine learning and event prediction, and help us keep clean water flowing to Yorkshire even in drought or flood. Using increasingly powerful analytical tools and processes to turn our insights into quick action will be vital, whether that action’s taken by people or is automated.
We love innovation
We’re proud of the pioneering work we’ve been doing to deliver more for the people of Yorkshire. The smart network we’ve developed brings together tech and telecoms to revolutionise the way water leaks and interruptions are managed.
