Executive Manager People, Culture and Safety Kenan Hibberd said the new engineers would be essential to fresh thinking and new ideas for how Unitywater delivers a more sustainable future.

“The next generation of engineers and the ideas they'll bring to our growing portfolio of network are invaluable as we deliver new and emerging communities across Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay, and as South East Queensland prepares  for the Olympics in 2032.

“Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is a critical field for our business and we have some exciting projects in the pipeline which our engineering graduates will have the chance to contribute to over the next two years,” Mr Hibberd said.  

Graduate Civil Engineer Randeep Sorout said he wanted to pursue a career in the water industry and aspires to contribute to people's lives.

“Water as a resource is responsible for life on earth. Protecting it and managing it correctly will have a positive impact on the environment. I’m looking forward to working with different teams and learning how they deal with engineering challenges to keep our customers happy and the environment clean," he said.

And for chemical engineering and economics graduate Emily Ballard, being able to develop more efficient and sustainable solutions appealed to her when she chose her university major.  

“The water industry is continually looking for ways to improve water delivery and treatment to ensure it is sustainable for the future,” she said.

Mechanical Engineers Annaleaze Flynn and Harry McLean said they were excited about the next two years with Unitywater.  

“Solving complex problems in a team environment is what I love most about engineering. There is also a great sense of satisfaction when problem solving as well as knowing that you are positively contributing to your local community,” Annaleaze said.
