Water @ Work: A Career Guide
Expanded Title:Water in Africa is precious. At every single stage of the water cycle, trained people are needed to look after it, to store it, to make sure it is clean enough for use, or to help people and industries all over the country to have access to it. This means that the world of water offers a great many different job opportunities for school leavers or people who have diplomas, certificates, or degrees. South Africa is critically short of skilled staff at all levels in the world of water. Wherever people need water there are career opportunities in work that is worthwhile and interesting. The jobs are at all educational levels and in every type of environment across the county – in cities, in nature reserves, or in isolated villages. Employers include government, research institutions, water utilities, industry, consultancies, non-governmental organizations, and private enterprise. We use water in every walk of life, and our economy depends on reliable sources of good quality water. Each part of the water industry contributes to making sure that adequate water is available, in homes, for example, or in industry or agriculture. This book is a guide to the many options available to anyone looking for a career path in the fascinating world of water.
