"There's real sense of teamwork, we’re all striving towards the same thing, and people are passionate about what they do."


Work with us because we do work that really matters. And that means you will too. But it’s not just what we do that we believe is important. It’s how we do it too. So, we’ve thought long and hard about the kind of company we want to be and created a set of values that underpin everything we do:

"We're on trajectory to live by our values."
  • Succeeding together
  • Doing the right thing
  • Always improving
  • Working with care

Living these values and working together with our communities will help us achieve a resilient water future for the South East.


Welcoming everyone
"Every area is like a little family, that's where you get the friendly feel from."

We’re proud that our people are all as uniquely different as the communities we serve. And long may that continue. Because our differences are what make us stronger and we welcome, recognise and value that.

We want everyone to feel like they belong and are included in every area of our business and the future we’re building together. So, we offer equal opportunities to all and support and encourage everyone to bring their true self to work and enjoy the opportunity to learn, grow and become the best they can be within our respectful and appreciative environment.


Welcoming challenges
"We want everything to work as it should work. When it goes wrong, we're all there as a team."

We’ll be honest with you. Working at Southern Water is not without its fair share of challenges. But that’s what makes a career here so endlessly fascinating. We’re proud to deliver an essential service to our local communities and up for tackling every test that comes our way.

We’re an organisation that’s going places. We’re changing at pace, learning from the past and looking to the future. We’re improving, evolving and innovating across all areas of our business, from how we deliver services to important environmental issues. So, if you love a challenge and the opportunity to show what you’re made of, we’re the perfect place for you to build an impactful career.
