Training and Development

At Portsmouth Water we recognise that the people we employee are our most important asset. Therefore, we aim to ensure all employees are in possession of the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to perform their job to the required standard. This, in turn, enables our business goals and targets to be met.

We want every employee at Portsmouth Water to reach their full potential within their chosen career. We strive through our training and development programme to allow employees to fulfill their potential.

We offer opportunities through a range of Modern Apprenticeships including Mechanical and Electrical, Business Administration and Customer Services allowing employees to obtain qualifications ranging from an NVQ Level 2 to HNC.

Employees are encouraged to further their academic qualifications in relation to their job activity. For example a number of employees have gone on to achieve, with our full support, Degree and MSc qualifications.

All employees receive an annual Performance Development Review where in discussion with their Supervisor, they reflect on their performance over the past year and where necessary highlight areas that need developing.
