We have an exciting opportunity for a  Smart Metering Data Admin to join the Water Service Delivery team at Yorkshire Water and be a part of helping Yorkshire Water to provide the best service to our customers. Could this be you? 

 

What we do: 

 

Everyone has an idea of what a water company does. Here in Yorkshire, we make sure that over 5.4 million people living in the region and the millions of people who visit our region each year, can rely on our services, and have clean and safe drinking water on tap and that their wastewater is taken away. But for us, it’s so much more than this. 

 

We look after communities, protect the environment, and plan to look after Yorkshire’s water, today, tomorrow 24/7, 365 days a year. We provide essential water and wastewater services to every corner of the Yorkshire region, and play a key role in the region’s health, wellbeing, and prosperity.  

 

We have ambitions to reduce Leakage, Per Capita Consumption and Non-household demand, and have recently submitted its case to the environmental regular DEFRA/EA and financial regulator OFWAT for the next 5 years funding. Within these plans we wish to replace 1.4Million customer meters, with Smart Meters, between 2025-2030, and install a further ~160,000 meters. This means moving from a solution which logs how much water has been used on a monthly basis and which is read every 6 months by AMR, to understanding what water has been used on an hourly basis with only a 6-hour delay in receiving the reading, utilising a Internet of Things Network. 

  

To leverage this data to its full extend we are putting in place a team to fully understand the future service improvements, cost efficiencies and new service offerings we can provide. The team will be looking to design the end-to-end transition for meter related services, creating new or amending existing capabilities, designing new processes, defining analytic requirements, improving data quality, effectively contract managing partners and working with Tech to develop and embed the solutions to have us ready for smart metering in April 2025.
