I loved working at Melbourne Water - thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I managed a rather large IT project and also the website upgrade. I only left as my contract had finished and there was no new projects on the horizon to sustain a contractor like me. I would go back in a heart beat and know I would be welcomed back. Awesome group of people too. They care about about their resources as much as they do their customers and the environment and their mission statement - all exceptionally well.

Working outside, with good team members and leaders. A typical day at work will be arriving onsite 7:30 am, getting assigned to a job, with at least one permanent worker on each job. A wide variety of jobs which is perfect for me

Working an alternate weekly roster, either 8 - 4:30 or 9 - 5:30.

Working as a 2 person team with little need for instruction from our manager as my colleague and I worked well together to make sure all our work was completed in a timely and a most courteous manner.


On the 8:00am start we arrived at 7:30am to sort newspapers in to departments ready for collection and the post was collected.

Main entrance door was opened ready for business, meeting a greeting guests, staff, postal service companies and catering companies. Advising all staff of guests and deliveries in a timely manner.

We changed positions after lunch, the afternoon was spent assisting the Supply team with invoices and scanning, collection of outgoing mail from 6 floors, franked ready for collection by Australian Postal Service


On the 9 O'clock shift, the mail was opened, sorted and delivered over the 6 floors of the building, outgoing mail from the previous evening was collected and franked.


Telephone calls were taken throughout the day either from staff, members or the general public or other Water Companies.


I enjoyed all aspects of my job role and was very sorry when it was time to leave. I have been given a very good 'recommendation to employ' letter from my manager.
Pros
Great pension scheme, advancement to other areas possible
Cons
None
