“Starting work under an apprenticeship at Anglian Water is one of the best opportunities in the Wisbech area. The favourite part about this apprenticeship is that everyone within Anglian Water is so nice and easy to get along with, which makes my project meetings enjoyable and not daunting, this is great for someone who has not been in the industry very long.
