The State Government owns all water corporations and appoints non-executive directors to the water corporation boards.

Directors must be suitably qualified, experienced and represent all Victorians, so we’re engaging the community and increasing diversity in water sector leadership.

Board directors come from all walks of life. They can be farmers, small business owners, project managers or other professionals. Because they have different experiences, they bring a range of different skills to water corporation boards including:

  • financial and commercial management
  • natural resource management
  • climate change
  • strategy and business management
  • infrastructure and project management
  • corporate governance

We’re proud of the gender equality on our water corporation boards: since 2015 at least 50% of all appointments have been women.

The next round of water corporation board appointments will take place in 2021. We encourage applications from women, people of all ages, Aboriginal people, people with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and from lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse and intersex people.
