Create a sustainable future with a career in water

Careers in Water

Careers in Water is an initiative of the Australian Water Association (AWA) and the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) to increase awareness and attraction of talent to work in water and be part of delivering a sustainable water future. The first phase of this initiative is the launch of a Careers in Water website.

The site is a hub for water career information, including a water sector wide Employee Value Proposition (EVP), along with branding and collateral available for anyone to use when recruiting or looking to attract people to water opportunities. The site also includes a link to the H2Oz jobs platform.

Over time, this initiative will develop beyond the website to include partnerships between schools, universities and our sector, innovative skills and employment pathway resources and inspiring case studies and stories to enable our sector to encourage and acquire the skills to fulfill critical roles now and in the future. 


AWA Members are sharing their career stories to show the boundless opportunities for turning today’s precious resource into tomorrow’s sustainable future. 

Elliot Cichero is a Water Resilience and Climate Change Adaptation Analyst with Sydney Water and Chair of the AWA National YWP Taskforce.

"There's all sorts of careers in the water industry and if you’re passionate... then there's a place for you here" - Elliot Cichero
