Application process

Our recruitment process has been designed with the candidate in mind. We will endeavour to communicate with you throughout so you’re informed about the progress of your application. Our process follows these steps:

All applications are to be submitted online via the Wannon Water careers portal and should include:

  • Cover letter - Outline how well suited you are for the position and what you can bring to Wannon Water.

  • Referees - Include the names, position titles and contact phone numbers for at least two (2) professional referees. One of these referees must be your current supervisor/employer (which can be provided near the end of the decision process).

Once you’ve submitted your application online, you will receive a confirmation email. You can keep track of your application and update your contact details by using your candidate log in. Please do not apply by post, fax or phone.



If you meet the criteria, we’ll contact you to arrange an interview, either over the phone or face-to-face.

Interviews give us the opportunity to learn more about you, and you have the chance to learn more about the position. Candidates will be assessed on relevant qualifications and experience, along with how well they fit with our values, culture and team.
