The Institute of Water is the only professional body that exclusively supports the careers of anyone working in the UK water industry.

It was founded in 1945 as a place for new starters in the industry to turn to ask ‘why this?, why that?’ and to ensure that employees could keep up to date with the industry and have access to all of the developmental opportunities needed along the way. Membership ultimately offers people who work in the industry, regardless of their qualifications or discipline/department, the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and develop within the sector.

If you are considering a career in the UK Water industry, you should also consider membership of the Institute of Water to support you along the way.

Meet and learn from the very best in the sector

The Institute provides a forum for members to meet the best in the sector, hear their views and ideas, learn from their experience and build/maintain those professional contacts. Their events draw in the most relevant and useful speakers and give members a unique opportunity to question and meet in person the industry’s key players. Site visits give members behind the scenes access to the latest technology and engineering and help them to appreciate the scale of the water and wastewater sector that they work in.

The Institute is keen to nurture rising talent in the water sector and there are many opportunities linked to this, such as our ‘young speakers’ platform and ‘rising stars’ initiative developed with publication Utility Week, which is looking to identify and celebrate young talent.

Other benefits of membership include: access to an industry specific mentoring service; a structured approach to CPD; a quarterly Journal and online access to relevant industry information. The Institute is licensed by the Engineering Council to register Engineering Technicians, Incorporated Engineers and Chartered Engineers; and is licensed to register Chartered Environmentalists by the Society for the Environment. It provides full support to members during the application and assessment process.
