Abi ready to muck about with raw waste
LANHYDROCK'S Abi Hayward has become one of South West Water's first two female apprentices – in sewage.
South West Water has employed the next generation of water industry professionals, with 22 apprentices joining water and sewerage operations across the region.
The apprentices will work alongside a nominated mentor while studying for a level 3 qualification from a training provider.
Miss Hayward, 22, will be working in waste water services in Bodmin. She said: "I wanted a lifelong career and to do something outdoorsy while protecting the environment. It was South West Water's values of sustaining our environment here in the South West that made me want to apply."
