Here are some of the benefits to working for us.
Purpose in every day work
Our people ensure that more than 1.4 million South East Queenslanders have access to world-class drinking water, recycled water and sewerage services. We love being part of our urban and regional communities, and take great pride in our people, our work, and the opportunity to manage a network that provides access to one of earth's most precious resources.
We believe in supporting personal development, from learning to leading. We provide support for professional qualifications, on the job coaching and mentoring and access to new career opportunities. Last year 40% of the roles recruited were filled by our internal talent.
We’re one of Australia’s most innovative companies!
Our Innovation Program creates operational efficiencies, enhances our customer experiences and elevates our workplace culture - and for that, we're incredibly proud to be the highest ranked utility in The Australian Financial Review's Most Innovative Companies for 2018. We actively encourage our staff to think of new ideas – and – we support them to actually make their ideas happen.
So many discounts, so little time
As an Urban Utilities employee, you’ll have access to UrbanPerks, our exclusive employee benefits and discounts portal. Urban Perks is a benefits platform covering hundreds of retailers including food, fashion, travel, entertainment, insurance and much, much more. It gives our employees and their families access to discounted eGift cards and cash-back rewards at your favourite stores, both online and in-store.
Getting social whilst being connected
Our Young Water Professionals group supports and harnesses the potential of bright, young talent. The group offers opportunities for members to attend industry networking and social events that contribute to their personal and professional development.
A healthy work/life balance is encouraged, so we offer a range of flexible working options including working from home, full and part-time hours, career breaks and paid maternity and paternity leave.
Give back and make a difference
Our attendance at community events will give you the opportunity to volunteer to support a variety of important causes. Our volunteer work ranges from tree planting and rubbish collecting, to providing reusable water bottles at fun-runs, to reduce our environmental impact.
