Meet one of Sydney Water’s newest recruits.

North Parramatta resident Anna Flack was one of 10 successful Sydney Water Graduate Program applicants chosen from more than 1400 applications.

Graduates will spend the next four years working in various Sydney Water departments in 12 month rotations.

Ms Flack, 23, will spent her first year in the Parramatta head office on a project to minimise nutrients being released into the Hawkesbury/Nepean River System.

“I feel lucky to be selected as I have friends who were unable to get jobs in their field,” she said.

“I like the outdoors and am passionate about the environment, which will be a big issue over the next few years. I look forward to applying skills I learned at uni and getting experience in the field. Working in different departments will give me a chance to keep my mind and options open.”

She urged final year students to apply for Sydney Water’s 2018 program. Application’s close March 31.

The program employs graduates in a range of fields including IT, engineering, environmental science, finance and communications.

“It’s a good workplace for graduates to make the transition from university to the workforce,” Ms Flack said.

Sydney Water managing director Kevin Young added:

“We look for a diverse range of talented candidates with innovative ideas and drive to help Sydney Water prepare for tomorrow.”
