            Learn new skills. Boost your confidence.

            If you could continue adding to your repertoire of existing skills in a new industry, you’d probably give it some thought, wouldn’t you?

            Imagine installing, testing and performing routine maintenance (planned and unplanned) on a variety of pumps, valves and piping across the plants that carry water to your home, and homes around the region.

            The variety of work will keep you busy and engaged. Whether you’re working alone or with your supportive colleagues, your mechanical trades experience will help you tackle complex problems on water and wastewater systems. This is your platform to learn and grow.

            Due to the vastness of the Water Corporation business throughout Western Australia, there will be opportunities arising within the mechanical trades area at a later date – this maybe a steppingstone for future possibilities.
