I am happy with the pay and benefits I receive in this job

Due to the hazardous nature of some Wessex Water locations, for example the sewage treatment works and the industrial laundry, occupational health surveillance is instituted to all employees to identify and prevent the development of potential causes of harm and to also determine existing health problems. This health surveillance includes a screening questionnaire issued to new all employees, an annual health screening questionnaire that checks up on employee's health in the workplace, a clinical assessment that takes place if issues are raised, including a hearing test, examination of vascular and neurological function, skin assessment, eyesight and blood pressure. As a final stage, a doctor will conduct a medical assessment should chronic problems be discovered. Occupational health professionals are also able to provide support with stresses in the workplace. Wessex Water Enterprises also operates an Employee Assistance Programme which offers free and confidential telephone counselling and free legal signposting for issues that can cause anxiety and stress.

The experience I gain from this job is valuable for my future

Wessex Water Enterprises are working with local charity Young Bristol to turn their vision on sustainability and renewable energy into artwork. The project will create three separate designs, which will be displayed in the new meeting space at the Avonmouth site offices at Bristol sewage treatment works. The youth driven charity works to offer a range of opportunities for all young people and the project with Wessex Water Enterprises will involve 40 young people, ranging from 8 to 16 years old, from clubs in the local communities of Avonmouth. Additionally, if any employees are taking part in a fundraising event for a local charity, Wessex Water Enterprises helps employees raise more money through their Community PlusFund scheme. For every £1 raised by staff members for a local charity, Community PlusFund will match it up to a maximum of £250. Wessex Water Enterprises also teamed up with the Prince's Trust to offer work placements to six young people struggling with long-term unemployment. They were asked to carry out a range of different duties and after impressing both Managers and colleagues, each of the trainees were rewarded with further employment within the business.
