Our Vacation Program is one of our key talent pipeline programs, designed to provide university students with a meaningful work placement in their chosen field of study.
University students across South East Queensland are encouraged to apply for the program, with 12 opportunities available.
It's a great opportunity to get hands on industry experience. Students will complete three month's paid work on a casual basis, working four days a week over the summer holiday period.
For the 2021-2022 intake we are proud to offer the undergraduate opportunities in the fields of:
Environmental Engineering / Environmental Science
Environmental Planning / Environmental Law
Applications for 2022 are closed. Come back again later in the year for our 2023 intake!
Sunshine Coast Lightning join Vacation Program
This year we have teamed up with two-time Suncorp Super Netball Champions Sunshine Coast Lightning to add another learning opportunity to our Vacation Program.
While our Vacation Program gives students an opportunity to gain experience in their chosen field of study, this additional session with Lightning players will offer an inspiring take on important skills like teamwork, agility, resilience and leadership.
These qualities will set students up for success in any career and this session adds to the great program Unitywater already runs to help students start scoring goals for their future.
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.
Watch Maddy's video on how she loves the ongoing support she receives and the sense of community she feels!
