Water Reticulation

Now that’s a nice set of pipes.

- Either a great singing voice or some lovely drainage pipes being laid. Or both.

Are you going to get wet feet? Yes, sometimes, but hopefully not for that long if the job is heading in the direction it’s meant to be.

From labourer to supervisor, through to manager, working in water reticulation and drainage has a big variety of work, roles and career pathways. You’re a vital part of the civil contracting team, carrying out both planned projects and works at a moment’s notice to keep water flowing where it should be (and diverting it from where it shouldn’t).

Roles include:

  • Drainage Excavator Operator 
  • Drainlayers 
  • Water Reticulation Serviceperson 
  • Skilled Labourer 

These high demand roles give you the best of both worlds, with you being part of a team but also being able to just get on with it on your own. There’s plenty of room to grow – maybe you’d like to have a go on the toys? A drainage operator excavator is within your reach in the water reticulation and drainage teams.
