People at desk working

There's no life without water.
Care with us, for today and tomorrow.

Our purpose is to enrich quality of life.

In life's 'little moments' - a morning coffee, a dog bath, a dip in the pool - we're there.

We play a valued role in enhancing the liveability of our communities. It's a role we take extremely seriously as we shape the moments to come across SEQ.


Our people are purpose-led, and values driven. Values matter so much, especially in an organisation like ours. They underpin everything we do – and how we do it. Curious what our people truly CARE about?

So why do our people choose to work at Urban Utilities?

Impact that's essential, always.

Behind the scenes. Under the ground. We're working. We're caring. We're making sure. Some forget we're here. You see, that's the thing about water - it's easy to take for granted.

We show up anyway, day after day, treating and protecting this thing that keeps people alive, prevents disease and enriches quality of life.

But when the storm does come, we're ready. We stand, we walk towards and we stay. Until the job's done. Until the sky's clear. Until life's restored and sustained.

Problems worth solving, for today and tomorrow.

The way we see it, problems are there to be solved. And challenges are opportunities to achieve and grow.

At Urban Utilities, you’ll find interesting projects, fulfilling work, and experiences you won’t get elsewhere.

And you’ll know that with every job well done, with every process improved, with every crisis averted, you’re helping people and communities thrive.

Teams that show up in the moments that matter.

Our work isn’t easy, and we’ve been through plenty of challenge and change. But our people have kept going.

Here, you’ll find teammates who go the extra mile – not just for our customers but also for each other. They’re not limelight lovers or attention seekers. They do it because they genuinely care.

We’re rarely short on camaraderie, and there’s usually a friendly smile and helping hand, whatever the weather. And it’s not just about the big stuff - here, there are moments that matter every day. When you need it, our people will show up and walk with you.

Your time to shape the moments to come.

Our work is never done. And like water, it never sits still. We see that as a great opportunity - to serve the community for today and tomorrow, and to help shape the long-term direction of our region.

That’s about our strategy and the impact it has on our customers, of course. But it’s also about the evolution of the Urban Utilities culture and team - it’s about who we’ll be and how we’ll work ten years from now.

We’re not perfect and there’s plenty still to do. It’ll take time and it’s not for everyone. But if you want to shape the future of Urban Utilities and the vital work we do, now’s the time.

Are you up for the challenge?

Urban Utilities has a proud and established past, shaped by the capability and tenacity of our people.

We’ve had our fair share of challenge and change over the years, and there’s more to come.

  • Population growth and rapid urbanisation...
  • Climate change and extreme weather events...
  • Opportunities like the 2032 Olympics...

The world is always evolving and so must we.

Our strategy centres on prioritising the fundamentals of our important BAU (business as usual), while also enabling our people to innovate for the future. Everyone knows that’s a tough balance to strike. But if you’re up for the challenge, you’ll find a unique opportunity to grow, belong and achieve the remarkable.

There’s no US without U.
