South East Water Internship opportunities

South East Water (SEW) employs around ~650 staff and supplies water and wastewater services to over 1.9 million residents living in the south eastern region of Melbourne.

Historically SEW takes on a batch of final year or recent graduates for Summer Internship project work and experience. These have typically been sourced through the networks and contacts of the teams seeking the interns.

South East Water sees the opportunity to improve the Intern Program as an input to increasing the quality and diversity in the Graduate Recruitment Program and the SEW organisation.
