Without correctly designed, implemented, managed and secured OT, Anglian Water simply couldn't operate.

You'll also define methods and tools to manage and maintain visibility of the OT network assets. Alongside this, you'll work with the platform architects to create and update Reference Architectures that define the company standard designs for OT Network build.

In this role you'll ensure high standards of service and security are provided for the delivery of the OT Network functions to ensure service resilience and availability is maintained. You'll also ensure that all changes, including updates, upgrades and modifications, are analysed and documented in line with the approved Change Management processes.

What do you need?

Our ideal candidate will have an engineering/IT related background in a Water Industry or similar process sector and the following:

  • Experience with designing, operating & maintaining large or complex IP based IT/OT Networks.
