Jamie Marshall, who joined the class of 2022 as a Water Utilities Apprentice, explains the benefits:

“Prior to starting my apprenticeship at NI Water, I studied sports at University and had no real knowledge of the water industry. I was attracted to NI Water because of the essential nature of the work they do for society in Northern Ireland.

Since joining NI Water, my level of knowledge of the water and wastewater industry has not only improved daily, but I’ve created bonds and friendships with colleagues and trainers which made the settling in process that much easier. Everyday whilst training, we’re greeted with a friendly smile whilst being provided with a first class learning environment to help learn and grow.  I hope to have a long and successful future at NI Water.”
