Full Time


Here at Anglian Water, we're proud to be the biggest water supply and water recycling company within England and Wales. We serve around six million customers from the Humber in the north to the Thames in the south, from Daventry in the west to Lowestoft in the east. Providing water to this large number of homes and businesses is no mean feat and means we have a range of opportunities within our huge infrastructure.

Take this high visibility role in a huge spend area, and you'll develop business plans and strategies that feed in to the sourcing plan and help to improve the performance of your category. You'll then build relationships across the business at the highest levels to secure buy-in for your ambitious long-term vision. You'll also act as our expert on the category, finding out everything there is to know from inside and outside the business. It's that in-depth knowledge and understanding that will enable you to turn data in to insight and achieve impressive improvements and benefits.


You may be a seasoned category manager with a PRINCE2 or APMG and CIPS qualifications. Perhaps you're a product manager looking for the challenge of steering a whole category. You'll definitely be a skilled portfolio manager with experience of developing strategy and vision and the stakeholder management prowess to gain approval for your ideas across the business. Water industry experience would be desirable, though we're more interested in your analytical skills and ability to excel at an interesting time for the industry.

Take this opportunity and you'll gain great experience working with a wider range of products than you might be used to. It's a chance to learn and develop in new areas as part of a really friendly and welcoming team. What's more, you'll get great support from Anglian Water, including training, personal development and gaining qualifications. We welcome your ideas and input, so you'll truly have the chance to shine.
