Water Management Operative

Turnbull / Wessex Water 

Hinkley Point C 




In this role, you will help to install, operate, and maintain the dewatering and water management network on the Hinkley Point C site to ensure that all operations meet our rigorous safety, quality and service standards. You will be working in a great team, both indoors and outdoors, in all environments, dealing with different challenges every day and providing a vital service. 


Day to day, you will perform a range of routine and reactive operational and maintenance work, making sure that everything is done within permit conditions and inline with relevant procedures. 


Health and safety is a priority for us, so you will be expected to operate within strict guidelines to ensure the safety of yourself, your team, our subcontractors and other contracts and colleagues on Hinkley Point C.



This is a busy, varied role which involves working on a complex and challenging project, so we are looking for someone with a positive and can-do attitude who is well organised and customer focused. 

You will interact with a range of stakeholders, including your own team, client representatives and other contractors. Therefore, good communication skills and being a natural team player would also be favourable.



Ideally, you will have previous experience within the construction industry. However, we will teach you all you need to know to be successful in the role. Trade skills and previous experience of hand tools, power tools, woodworks, fixtures, and fittings would be advantageous.
