What has Wales got to offer?

On top of that there’s Wales’ capital city – Cardiff – where many of our offices are based. Exciting and vibrant, Cardiff constantly delights, attracting thousands of visitors every year: there’s shopping to satisfy all tastes, a plethora of first-class restaurants and pubs, a rich and varied nightlife… plus, Europe's largest waterfront development, Cardiff Bay, with a host of leisure activities.

Yet these are just the tip of the iceberg. Wales is alive with history and culture and has so many more delights for you to discover. Yes, Wales is a unique place to work and an incredible place to call home.

What Makes Us Special

Not many utility companies can say that they are unique. But Welsh Water can. Unlike other water companies, we have no shareholders to influence the way the company is run. We’re owned by Glas Cymru – a not-for-profit company. This means any profits that we make are re-invested back into the business for the benefit of our customers and employees.

As such we have a distinct company structure – we’re governed by members, who have no financial interest in the business.

What’s more, we are the sixth-largest water and sewage company in England and Wales – servicing 1.4 million homes and businesses across Wales and some adjoining parts of England, with around 3,000 employees.

In essence, ours is a company based on trust, openness, respect, commitment and honesty. A company that our employees are proud to work for.
