VCE Vocational Major students from St Bede’s College explored career paths in the water industry by getting a first-hand look at water main renewal works along Beach Road in Mentone.

South East Water and delivery partner Service Stream provided students with unique access to watch crews working on site who shared their insights about the diverse career paths available in the water sector.

St Bede’s College Careers and Pathways Coordinator Kaylene Menara said the experience provided students with a valuable opportunity to tour a civic project site and engage with a variety of occupations, from site managers to tradespersons.

“It’s a great example of partnership between industry and schools in educating youth about a range of potential future pathways and how to pursue them,” said Ms Menara.

South East Water Acting General Manager Liveable Water Solutions Matthew Snell said that the water sector offered a diverse range of career paths for individuals passionate about making a difference.

“We need a wide range of talent and experience to provide clean, safe, and reliable water and wastewater services to 1.8 million people. From hands-on trades in plumbing, mechanical and electrical to roles in engineering, science and technology, there’s plenty of scope for you to grow your career and be challenged along the way,” said Mr Snell.

As part of its 5-year Customer Commitment (Price Submission 2023–28), South East Water’s $180 million annual infrastructure upgrade program is working to deliver safe and reliable water and sewer services to its customers and community.
