The way we work - living our values

We are a passionate team making a positive impact across South East Queensland. We ensure a safe, secure and cost-effective water supply for millions of people across the region. 

We believe the way we provide these services is just as important as the services themselves. We have a Code of Conduct - The way we work which is an essential part of who we are at Seqwater.

No matter where we work or the job we do, The way we work helps us every one of us - employees, Board members, consultants, contractors - live our values.

Our vision

Water for life.

Our promise

Safe for life.

Our values

  • Integrity – be honest and do the right thing
  • Respect – work together, seek to understand, value difference, bring your best
  • Care – look after yourself, each other, and our communities
  • Courage – speak up, find better ways, lead by example.

A regional workforce

We are one of Australia’s largest water businesses with the most geographically spread and diverse asset base of any capital city water authority. Our operations extend from the New South Wales border to the base of the Toowoomba ranges and north to Gympie, and we work in some of the most beautiful parts of our region.

As a regional water business, our corporate headquarters is in the first 5-Star Green Star rated building in the growing community of Ipswich. It houses most of our employees, and is a statement of our commitment to the environment.

We live and work in the region, so we know how important it is to do our job with a focus on safety, quality, reliability and value-for-money, because we depend on it too. South East Queensland is our home and we are determined to deliver on our Water for life vision.

If you feel you can live these values and are looking for an extraordinary career in which you can make a real impact, we’d love to talk to you.

Innovation and improvement through R&D

Seqwater has a strong research and development focus, working to continually improve our practices and processes through innovation. We have built strong relationships with the research sector and undertake research in partnership with universities and other entities.

Connecting with our communities

Our communities are at the heart of what we do. We engage our neighbours and communities across all aspects of our work, from planning to project delivery, to community consultation and broad scale community education campaigns. We seek to listen and understand community needs, proactively share information about our role and work, build community knowledge of the water cycle and the SEQ Water Grid, identify and resolve issues and deliver on our promises.

Seqwater is committed to engaging with South East Queensland communities to achieve the best outcomes for our region.
