Identifying long-term talent in the UK water sector

With an upcoming election potentially dictating radical changes, it’s an unsettling time in the UK water sector as we approach AMP7. The potential of nationalisation, aligned with competition for talent across other major infrastructure sectors (think rail, airports and energy) makes it difficult to know what people capabilities are needed, and when.

Searching for senior managers and executives – It goes without saying that unsettling times generally lead to unexpected changes on leadership teams. It’s therefore crucial to expect the unexpected, and have a plan in place for when it does. Succession planning is key, but sometimes water companies don’t have big budgets to run large-scale strategic talent planning initiatives; sometimes, you have to be reactive and recruit people on a case-by-case basis.
