  • Planned and reactive activities in relation to the water network operation 
  • Reacting to customer needs 
  • Planned preventative maintenance on the water network 
  • Leakage detection 
  • Water regulations 
  • Water quality 

As a Water Network Technician Apprentice, you’ll be part of a critical team who act as our front-line ambassadors for our customers, ensuring we can deliver safe, clean water to homes and businesses across the region.
