We are Wales & West Utilities – the gas emergency and pipeline service for the south west of England and Wales. Every day our skilled and dedicated colleagues do their best to keep the 7.5m people we serve safe and warm with a gas network they can rely on and level of service they can trust.
We don’t sell gas; we use our network to transport gas to homes and businesses across the south west of England and Wales. We respond to gas emergencies, and we invest £2m every week, connecting new homes and businesses, and upgrading old metal gas pipes to new plastic ones so the communities we serve receive a safe and reliable gas supply for generations to come.
Our apprenticeships offer people 16+ an opportunity to earn while they learn, gaining recognised qualification and the opportunity to build a career in the gas industry. The length of our apprenticeships is role dependent, but will be between 2-4 years.
Prospective applicants should want to work outside. Most of the training is on-the-job, working with our experienced engineers to learn job specific skills in the workplace. Classroom based training is provided by our training provider and is delivered at either our purpose built training academy in Bridgwater or Treforest or at local colleges.
