Demand for qualified water and wastewater specialists is on the rise as the industry is scheduled to lose up to 50% of its current workforce due to retirement in upcoming years.

SUEZ recognizes the importance of properly training the next generation of skilled workers. Ensuring the delivery of safe, clean, reliable water and wastewater services to millions of our valued customers each day depends on it.

Our apprenticeship is a multi-year program that offers training alongside experienced technicians in one of our treatment plants. Each apprenticeship combines hands-on-learning with supervised on-the-job training, allowing participants to receive valuable job skills while earning competitive wages.
