A graduate scheme is being advertised in Warrington, as a major water company looks for bright young engineers.

United Utilities hopes to offer graduate engineering jobs to 15 people a year, as part of a £3.6 billion programme to improve its service in the region.

This is Cheshire reports that the company, which has operations in Great Sankey, will be visiting universities and recruitment fairs in order to find candidates for the roles.

Both process engineering and civil engineering posts will be available, while United Utilities also hopes to persuade more people to undertake engineering degrees, in a bid to address the skills shortage facing the industry.

Daressa Frodsham, head of engineering knowledge at the company, told the news provider: "It's vitally important that we attract young engineering talent into the business so that we always have a fresh generation in line to replace engineers retiring from the company."

Last week, the British Chambers of Commerce highlighted official statistics indicating that the manufacturing sector is recovering, something that could stimulate further jobs for graduate engineers.
