Highlighting careers in three waters

Citycare Water’s core three waters business involves keeping our environment and waterways clean and healthy, something which is appealing to job seeking conservation volunteers.

Practical work experience is a great way to introduce job seekers to the variety of roles available within the water industry, that also tie in with community and environmental care. Recently Citycare Water teams were pleased to host an education and work experience day for Conservation Volunteers NZ.

As well as co-ordinating projects around the country, Conservation Volunteers NZ is in partnership with the Ministry for Social Development to help unemployed people get back into the workforce through the Conservation Work Skills programme.

Some roles at Citycare Water require a real passion for conservation and caring for the natural environment and Citycare Water is constantly promoting employment in the drinking water, stormwater and wastewater industry.

“It was great to host and support the Conservation Works Skills volunteers and our teams enjoyed sharing their expertise and providing an opportunity for the group to learn about three waters and get some hands on work experience in this space,” says Citycare Water Auckland Divisional Manager Sophie Guest.

After spending time with water maintenance, stormwater drainage, and Two in a Ute teams, the conservation volunteers got to handle the parts of putting together a water meter, saw a CCTV camera in action down a manhole and drainage system, watched a demonstration of a manhole haunching and got stuck in maintaining wetlands and rain gardens at a site in Flat Bush.

“It was all about creating opportunities and there was great interest around what a career in water can look like,” says Piet Michau, Auckland Water Service Manager.

“We touched on the diversity of jobs and specialities in the sector and the potential for personal growth through gaining new skills.”

“Our teams really enjoyed answering questions and opening up new perspectives about working in the three waters,” he says.

“The Citycare Water teams and the Two in a Ute team took very good care of us and the whole experience was really enjoyable,” says Dillon Blair, a team leader for Conservation Works Skills volunteers.

“My team got a lot from the day – they all want to work for Citycare Water now!” he says.

HR Manager Shauney O’Loughlin says the hands-on approach to introduce the water industry resonated well and all volunteers, without exception, expressed interest in joining Citycare Water in a variety of roles.
