“It is our vision to be the water company people want to be supplied by and want to work for and to get this on our first attempt is a remarkable achievement.”

“Employees appear knowledgeable in their roles and the impact that their actions can have. Many reported that the reason they wanted to work for South East Water was the ability to give back to the community, to be part of a vital service provision and to help shape a more sustainable future.”
