Why Water?

Without water, life as we know it would be impossible. Every day, we rely on it for drinking, washing and cleaning. It helps create the energy we need for heat and light. It's also essential to the products we enjoy and the health of the environment we share.

However, our world is changing - the twin pressures of more extreme weather events and a growing population are stretching our finite natural resources, including water. This challenge is felt in the UK, where several regions are water-stressed, including the South East.

In the water industry, your work will help to address these challenges and give people access to sustainable, high-quality water and wastewater services for decades to come.

The South East is also home to over 700 miles of coastline, two National Parks, four Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and some of the world's rarest chalk streams. Your activities will help preserve these breath-taking environments today and for generations to come.

Why Southern Water?

Each day, over four million people across Sussex, Kent, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight count on us for their essential water or wastewater services. Our work is vital, because we're providing water for life.

Do you want to make a difference? At Southern Water, you work will help to enhance health and wellbeing, protect and improve the environment and sustain the economy. You'll also play an important role in helping us deliver a resilient water future for the South East.

Are you a natural collaborator with a strong moral compass and high standards? If so, you'll fit right in. Everything we do is underpinned by three values: succeeding together, doing the right thing and always improving.

Do you want to bring your authentic self to work every day? We do too. That's why we're building an inclusive culture and are proud to offer equal opportunities regardless of age, cultural background, disability, gender, marital status, nationality, political belief, race, religion or sexual orientation. We believe the unique perspectives and experiences each of us brings make us stronger.

We are currently looking for two experienced Network & Firewall Engineers to join our fast paced and delivery driven IT Team on a permanent basis. You will utilise your excellent working knowledge of Cisco and Firewall systems to support and manage the high availability network and associated operational services in line with the agreed Service Level Targets.

You will primarily focus on assisting the customers with the 2nd & 3rd line support of any issues raised and troubleshooting issues for a 24x7 operation across the network. Please note that you will also participate in the network callout rota 1:3.

To succeed in this role, you will be a team player, with a positive, can-do attitude and drive for constant development as well as collaboration with wider teams across Southern Water.

To be considered for this role, we would like you to demonstrate the following:

  • Experience of installing, configuring and supporting Cisco network equipment, experience including the following: switching, routing, BGP, EIGRP, DMVPN, DNS and DHCP (CCNP or relevant experience)
  • Hands on experience in configuring, managing and maintaining Cisco ISE
