Water Industry Awards - Interview

Water Industry Awards - Interview

Tuesday night Kyrsten Perry, our Business Development Director represented Anglo Technical Recruitment at the Water Industry Achievement Awards in Birmingham, she shared her thoughts with us.

 

What struck you about the Water Industry Achievement Awards event?

The Annual Water Industry Awards 2016 in Birmingham were very inspiring. What struck me most, was the level of innovation and creativity that is going into providing sustainable water solutions for the UK.

 

What stood out at the event?

The Water industry is still very male dominated, that being said there are great women working very hard in the sector. It was very encouraging to see the almost entirely female team at South East Water win the “Customer Satisfaction Initiative of the year Award”. A big congratulation to South East Water!

 

What are your thoughts on partnerships within the water sector?

Speaking to our Water sector clients and candidates, it becomes completely apparent that although the water industry works in AMP cycles, all of us are dependent on each other from one AMP cycle to the next. From the customer, the water company, the water regulator to the permanent and contract staff working within the sector. I believe the more we partner and take a really long view the better, as it will help secure a healthy and successful water industry that is able to deliver  to the customer on time, within budget. 

 

What is on the horizon for the Water industry in 2017?

In 2017 the water industry will be much more customer focussed. As I understand it, the water industry is undergoing changes that will start in April 2017 when customers will be able to choose their water supplier. I have heard some of the impressive innovations and strategic approaches that are being adopted to adapt to and embrace this change that is coming in 2017.

 

Can you tell us more about what you appreciate about the Water Industry?

The water industry has had to embrace so many new technologies and new processes. By speaking to our water clients, I begin to appreciate more and more what it actually takes to do provide this service year on year for the UK public.
