About Hydro-X

Hydro-X is a group which specialises in providing water and air treatment services. They have four elements to their business – water treatment, air treatment, engineering services and training services, with each boasting a wide variety of niche products and services, from chemical cleaning solutions to large-scale water cooling systems and everything in between.

They have placed a huge emphasis on investing in graduate staff, with graduate recruitment forming a key part of their overall company strategy. They look to develop talent internally and allow graduates to grow with the company into senior positions. Several senior members of staff (including the group’s Operations Manager) started as graduates, so there is a clear development plan for the right person. They have grown during the Pandemic and have ambitious plans to continue along their upward trajectory, so it’s a really good time to join the business. They are looking for a technical and ambitious graduate to join their operations team to help grow the business further.
