We’re a multi-utility service provider on a mission to make the world brighter. With simple, sustainable power, water, and data services, we work together with developers and communities to create a better future for everyone.

Working alongside government, clients, and customers you have the opportunity to play an influential role in delivering ethical, sustainable solutions for communities and their residents – making positive change with real impact.

We service seven (7) water and wastewater communities within the Greater Sydney and Hunter area, providing high quality recycled water to 10,000 and ultimately 25,000 customers from locally sourced wastewater and stormwater. We are the only private water utility in Australia that has the end-to-end design, build, operation and customer retail of wastewater and recycled water services.

We are Seeking 

Altogether is looking for a Water Treatment Operator who is ready and able to be our hands on subject matter expert for our water recycling sites. You will work as part of team, operating and maintaining our Water Treatment plants based in the Sydney CBD and North West Sydney. All of the sites operate recycled water treatment plants sourced from sewage. Our CBD sites are what we call vertical communities with treatment plants located in the basement of high rise buildings and our North West Sydney plants are located within the community in new housing development areas.

In addition to the treatment plants, you will manage the sewerage and recycled water networks and, in some cases, the drinking water network as well.

Core Responsibilities 

  • Operate and maintain Local Water Centres, water distribution and sewerage networks
  • Interact with, operate, and respond to control and monitoring systems including field devices, programmable logic controllers and SCADA systems
  • Review and analyse results (laboratory and plant analysers) to ensure compliance and conduct process adjustments
  • Carry out and document preventive and breakdown maintenance on processes and equipment using relevant tools, processes, and systems
  • Work within a one in three on call roster
  • Provide support as we expand our schemes and bring new treatment plants and networks online

Skills & Experience 

  • You will have either tertiary trade qualifications (Cert III in Water Operations), or be a four-year degree Engineer with operating experience,
  • You will have worked in sewage treatment plants with either drinking water or high-quality water outputs,
  • Experience in operating reverse osmosis (RO) membranes is a plus.
  • You flourish in an environment where you are responsible for day-to-day operations and decision making whilst still knowing you have the expertise and a safe pair of hands to call on when needed. You are adept with time management and prioritising your workload and work site. Some days you might need to be going back and forth between the sites, which of course means you will need a driver’s licence and having required vaccinations, including any recommended boosters.
