Emma Goddard - Head of Environment
I've worked for South East Water in various roles for almost 23 years. I moved here from Lancashire to work on a 12 month contract and never left!
I'm currently head of environment and part of South East Water’s senior management team. I lead a team of scientists who manage all aspects of South East Water’s environmental work.
I really enjoy working in such a beautiful part of the country. It's also rewarding to work for a company that cares about its employees and genuinely wants to be ‘the company that people want to work for’. I am fortunate to work alongside a very talented and driven team at South East Water and this makes for a great, rewarding place to work.
South East Water is an excellent employer, there are great opportunities for training and for career development. You'll learn something new all of the time and work alongside some really inspiring people. It truly is a fantastic place to work.
Sarah Duffey - Customer Service Team Manager
After joining the company as an Evening Team Customer Service advisor six years ago, I have worked my way through to management and currently look after 14 staff as well as one senior.
The most rewarding part of my role is to see advisors progress and thrive. It's wonderful to help them grow in knowledge and skill and I find it personally rewarding that most of our staff find a long and prosperous career within South East Water.
I would always speak highly of South East Water. There is a sense of enjoyment you get from the friendly and supportive environment here. Often you would hear from new staff that it feels like a big family and I can definitely vouch for that.
South East Water nurtures its staff and there is emphasis on wellbeing as well as working towards being the company customers want to be supplied by. There are some great benefits that South East Water provide its staff, for example sports and social events, healthcare schemes, fund raising for Charity and great pension schemes. I would recommend South East Water as a great company to work for time and time again.

Steven Westworth - Social Media Lead
I’ve been with South East Water for almost two years now and the time has flown by! I really enjoy my role and see the company as a great place to enhance my career.
I currently lead our social media team, ensuring we respond to all queries that come in on Facebook & Twitter.
We believe in first time resolution and often build up a great rapport with customers who we may be providing updates for and we then find they will use us as their preferred contact method in the future.

Luke Senington - Distribution Technician
I've worked for South East Water for three years now. I'm a network technician, so my day to day role is around finding and fixing issues in the mains network. This can involve working on leaks, pressure issues, meter and billing enquiry’s, or any issue to do with our network apparatus.
The most challenging part of my job is when we have to react to a big issue like a burst that causes no water or network issues. We need to react quickly to get repairs completed, day and night, to get customers back up and running with fresh water.
I would recommend the company to friends or family as the job is really varied and every day is different. The company takes note of what we do and I feel that it is not too big, people know each other and you are classed as a person and not just a number on a balance sheet. There is a very good working environment.
