About the role

Our vision is clear – to become the national leader in the provision of sustainable water and waste water service. As our business continues to develop and grow, we’re looking to our people to drive our vision forward and continue to provide the highest standards of service to our customers, all day every day to help us deliver an unrivalled customer service.

We now have opportunities for people to join our team of Meter Readers within the Meter Field Services department at Essex & Suffolk Water. As a Meter Reader, you will be expected to travel your dedicated region undertaking timely and accurate cyclical reading of meters, so having a full valid driving licence is essential. You will interact with our customers, answering questions about water consumption and replacing/repairing meters where required.

Our Meter Readers spend most of their time outdoors, walking, bending and lifting meter lids. In such a constantly changing work environment being aware of Health and Safety risks is paramount in achieving our aim of getting everyone home safe every day.

They work mostly on their own and use current technology and systems to communicate with colleagues and to complete most of their daily work tasks.
