What is it?

The UWE Equity student programme aims to unlock talent through building BAME students with the confidence, skills and networks to succeed in their chosen career.  By partnering with organisations such as us, we provide mentors to these students to help them on their path.

Why we do it?

We want to be clear that there are no barriers to employment here at Bristol Water. As well as a great opportunity for the students, we're looking forward to developing mentoring skills for our staff and understanding the needs and interests of the young adults in our area.
