Job spot

Nick Merrick is design manager for Black & Veatch on the @One Alliance for Anglian Water.

During his seven year stint with Southern Water in the UK and overseas, Nick Merrick worked with a diverse range of firms, but one in particular stood out - Black & Veatch.

'Black & Veatch was adept at seeking innovative solutions within the tighter commercial environment. They were also keen on the collaborative approach to working which appealed to me, ' says Merrick.

Merrick joined Black & Veatch in July 2002 working within the Trident Alliance for Thames Water, progressing to design manager. This, coupled with his MBA, has placed him in a strong position to take Black & Veatch forward into the new AMP4 alliance with Anglian Water - the @One Alliance.

Working with Balfour Beatty, Barhale, Biwater, Carl Bro and Skanska Aker Kvaerner, as well as Anglian Water's engineering and operational colleagues, has been an exciting period.

'The @One Alliance has come a long way - and we still have much to achieve. Black & Veatch has a dynamic team keen to expand and respond to future challenges.' Resources are a key part of this success. 'I am fortunate in that we have many exciting opportunities here which make the Alliance a great place to work. Such is my belief in what we are doing that I am in the process of moving my family to Peterborough (where the Alliance is based)'.

A strong endorsement indeed and one seen elsewhere within Black & Veatch as it works to provide leading edge solutions in water, energy, environment and information throughout the UK.
