Our Rich History:

Our business started 125 years ago, when Sydney was a booming young city with challenges; there was no fresh water or sanitation, it wasn’t a very liveable city. A group of visionaries decided that Sydney Water (in its early iteration) should be born. The business they created delivered fresh water and sanitation to the city, bringing life to this great city. Their decision 125 years ago has allowed this city to grow and become the amazing place that it is today.


Our Graduate Opportunities:

We offer a four year rotational graduate program, allowing graduates up to four 12 month placements in various areas of the organisation. Grow your skills and knowledge through on the job training, supported by a structured training program and mentoring.
