Youth Board

Our Youth Board invites super smart sixth-formers to come and join us at Bristol Water HQ to learn more about how we work and suggest ways we can do things better.

Out with the Leadership Board, in with the Youth Board

Our Youth Board is made up of super sixth-formers who take the reins for two days and tell us how they want things to be done.

This isn’t a normal opportunity. We completely turn the tables and give you the chance to present to and influence us.

Our previous Youth Board inspired us to rebrand the company using cool local artwork. You only need to step near our Head Office to see the result – the work of local artists lines our walls and vans alike.

Together, we’ll take a closer look at the challenges of today and tomorrow, you’ll get the chance to interrogate our senior leaders, and then it’s over to you. That’s right! It’s your chance to sit up and influence a service that touches over a million local people, including your friends and family – if they live in the region, anyway.

The Youth Board takes place over two days.

Day 1

This is where your detective work starts.

You’ll meet the most senior members of Bristol Water and learn about the biggest and most pressing challenges we face – things like the way we might communicate and the environmental challenges of tomorrow, like making sure there’s enough water to go round.

Day 2

Now it’s over to you.

You’ll use your detective experience from day one to pull together a presentation in groups, using your own insight and ideas. You’ll pitch to us your thoughts and ideas and influence the way we do things.

What’s in it for me?

Well, quite a lot, since you ask…

You’ll receive £100, have something impressive to put on your CV and UCAS application, and learn more about the world of work, influencing and presenting, and coming into contact with senior leaders.

What are we looking for?

Ambitious sixth-formers from Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire who aren’t afraid to push themselves to think strategically – and present in front of leaders!

Applications are currently closed, and will open in the spring/summer of 2023.
