Affinity Water’s Programme Delivery Manager, Michael Beresford, ensures the company’s above ground investment programme such as reservoirs and treatment plants is delivered on time and to budget.
He enjoys the technical challenge of abstracting, treating, and delivering water to the company’s 3.6 million customers across the South East of England in the most efficient ways, while also considering the full environmental aspects of this work.
As part of Affinity Water’s ongoing National Careers Week series looking at career opportunities within the company Michael tells us more about his work and why he would recommend joining the company, the largest water only company in the UK.
He explains: “I manage a team of engineers and project managers delivering projects within our investment programme. Day to day I liaise with the team, suppliers, contractors, and our internal stakeholders to optimise delivery, and report on progress against our targets.
“Many of our projects are linked to sustainable abstraction of water, or to provide supply resilience. We aim to create a biodiversity net gain, so the environmental aspect has grown considerably in the last few years and is something we all have to focus on.”
Like others who work for Affinity Water Michael enjoys the strong sense of teamwork within the company. He continues: “The best stand-out moments are when we have all come together as a team. Last year working with our asset engineering team we managed to review the requirement for 3 new reservoirs, by analysing the network connectivity we managed to show that only 2 reservoirs were required and that by not building one we could make significant savings in terms of cost but also in terms of environmental impact”.
He recommends working for the sector and the company. There are currently vacancies within The Capital Delivery Team as a Project Manager, and also for a Costing Engineer and Finance Business Partner (Capex) within the Asset Strategy directorate.
“Working in the asset strategy team is a great opportunity to work from cradle to grave on a diverse range of projects and gain broad experience of water infrastructure and how it works and operates. You will also work with a wide range of people with a diverse range of skills and experiences”, he said.
