We're creating new job opportunities for youth

Sep 17, 2020

Five roles for apprentices and trainees.

Riverina Water is making a significant investment in education and training by offering a range of apprenticeships and traineeships.

The local government water utility has increased the amount of entry level positions available, which will be targeted at local school leavers.

“There will be five new roles, which will complement our two existing cadet engineer positions and an electrical apprentice,” Riverina Water General Manager Andrew Crakanthorp said.

“The new roles include an additional electrical apprentice, two maintenance operator traineeships, an IT trainee and a customer service trainee.”

Riverina Water supplies drinking water to 73,000 people across the Wagga Wagga, Lockhart Shire and parts of the Federation and Greater Hume local government areas.

“We employ a wide range of professions to help supply water across a network covering 15,000 square kilometres,” Mr Crakanthorp said.

“These new roles are an excellent opportunity to expand your horizons, earn a qualification and build a career.

“Not only will you learn on the job with our highly skilled staff, you will undertake a certificate relevant to the role.”

Riverina Water Chairperson Councillor Greg Verdon said the Board was committed to creating opportunities for youth.

“By investing in the next generation, we ensure we have qualified and experienced staff into the future,” Clr Verdon said.

“As a significant employer in southern NSW, it is important we contribute to the development of a skilled regional workforce.

“I encourage those finishing school this year or anyone considering a career in one of these roles available to apply.”
