The Asset Operations functions form the cornerstone of service delivery to customers, protecting the environment and meeting regulatory standards as well as managing the majority of operational expenditure.

The Head of Water Operations will report directly to the Head of Asset Operations and ultimately to the Chief Operations Officer after an initial establishment phase. The role-holder is responsible for the national delivery of water operational services through the operation, inspection, maintenance & repair of the water treatment and network assets (source to tap), whilst focusing on managing health and safety, preventing customer impact, reducing leakage, and improving the performance and efficiency of our water services.
