Every year Unitywater hosts undergraduate University students, providing an invaluable opportunity to get some real-life exposure to the workplace. The program offers a unique, hands-on experience and insight into their intended career. Our 2022-23 intake was our largest ever group of students, with 17 in total joining us for a three-month paid placement over their summer holidays. Students worked right across the organisation, from a range of disciplines including:
Highlights provided by this intake of students included the ability to get out in the field, produce some meaningful work, and really experience what their future career may look like first-hand. Some of these students were fortunate to be offered ongoing casual work and others moved straight into graduate positions in our Graduate Development Program.
Maddy started at Unitywater as a Vacation Student while she was studying her Bachelors of Psychology and HR. Maddy loved giving back to her community and her experience in our dynamic workplace so applied for our Graduate Development Program.
She successfully completed this two-year Graduate program and now works at Unitywater full time. As a young professional, Maddy has brought her knowledge from university and applied it in a practical sense.
