The water company has continued to employ new recruits without needing to make use of the Government’s furlough scheme.
Gemma Betney, for Anglian Water, said: “Never before has access to water been so important for health and hygiene.
"As key workers we play a vital role in keeping taps running, toilets flushing and drains draining during the pandemic."
The water company has a big requirement for science and engineering skills in its workforce, and offers a wide range of roles across the region, guaranteeing a permanent role at the end of the course.
Courses can last anywhere between 18 months and four years, depending on the type of role, and is often a mixture of classroom and practical hands-on learning supporting the team, across the region.
