Thames Water

Sector: Business

As the UK’s largest water and waste water company Thames Water serve 15 million customers across London and the Thames Valley. We deliver life’s essential service, so our customers, communities and the environment can thrive.

What we do

I’m in the education team at Thames Water and have the best job in the world. Every day is different. We have an outreach programme, delivering talks, STEM and careers events in schools across London and the Thames Valley, and we recruit and train volunteers to support students from nursery up to sixth form! We develop teaching resources and partner with organisations to enable students to gain essential skills and become work-ready.

Why we became a member

Connect Reading enables us to tap into what’s going on in our community, whether volunteering, supporting local charities or lending a hand in schools.

Who we would like to connect with

Connect Reading offers great opportunities for networking and to build credible partnerships in our local community.

Over the last couple of years as part of the Christmas Giving Tree, Connect Reading matched us with ABC To Read, and that's given us the chance to partner with a like minded organisation that our employees are very happy to support.
